Casualty: I’ll be watching you

(Series 36 ‘Gasping for Air’ by Stephen McAteer 20.11.21) Leap over to Metro to see my proper review of the episode. But before you go…

I’m very glad Jan and Ffion are back together. Does his mean Jan can finally move out of Iain’s?

Teddy will also be pleased, though today was his day off so he missed all the hostage excitement. It would really have been summat different for him.

Dave blaming Tony for the entire Holby pollution problem was a bit extreme.

How did Sah come across the live video feed from the squash court? What made them think, ‘I wonder if this is being broadcast live on th’internet?’ Unless Dave had promoted it somewhere…

When Dylan told Stevie, ‘We’re done – until Dylan wakes up,’ I thought he’d signed Ethan’s death warrant and Stevie would be straight along to Ethan’s bedside to pull out a few plugs and silence the things that go beep. But she didn’t.

But has she dropped her revenge plan now? Or does her ‘I’ll be watching you’ comment mean that she’s gone back to Revenge Plan A which is to wait until Ethan makes another mistake then go to Hanssen about it? Who knows? And does anyone really, really care?

Casualty: The one with Young Lev and Mrs Jan

Casualty - Series 34 - EP38(Series 34, ep. 37 by Dana Fainaru and Jillian Mannion 18.7.20) Head over to Metro for this week’s full review. But before you go…

– Well I wasn’t expecting that twist with Lev. I think it does make sense of how he briefly became a nasty football thug – that obviously was never really his nature but was a way to try and hide his confusion about his sexuality beneath a shell of hard-man bravado.

– Is that also true of his relationship with Faith? It does add yet another dimension to the Lev/Faith/Dylan triangle though. If Faith discovers what her husband has been up to with these dating apps it might propel her even faster in the direction of Dylan.

– The boys who played Young Lev and Young Sergei were very good, and you could see how Evgeny reminded Lev of Sergei.

– I liked Jan and Ffion’s relationship, which seemed very real. There are niggles between them, but they work it out because they understand that they both work in the kind of job that doesn’t just stop at 5PM.

– That labour scene in the car and the ambulance was ridiculously shrieky though – and I don’t just mean the woman in labour. Fenisha made enough noise herself.

Casualty news: Stirling Gallacher to join show as Jan’s wife Ffion

OWK2dnOwSome interesting casting news from Casualty today as it’s been announced that Stirling Gallacher, recently seen in Coronation Street as Paula Martin, has already started filming  with the show and will be on our screens in late spring.*

She’ll play police officer Ffion Morgan, who is the wife of paramedic Jan Jenning (Di Botcher). A while back we heard Jan’s son Ross make a reference to Ffion, so it’s something that’s been in the pipeline for a while. Executive Producer Simon Harper says they’re excited to explore this relationship, ‘not least with an actor as distinguished as Stirling, whom we are thrilled to welcome to the Casualty company, playing alongside the brilliant Di Botcher. Jan has a huge and terrifying story coming up in the next series where Ross comes into her life again – and given that Ross is pretty dodgy and Ffion is a police officer, it’s all going to get pretty turbulent!’

Stirling says she’s ‘entirely delighted to be joining the longest-running emergency medical drama television series in the world… what’s not to be thrilled about! The added bonus is of course the folk that work on this fantastic show. I could not have felt more personally welcomed or professionally supported in what is often a bit of a nerve wracking build up to your first days filming. I look forward to many happy hours on Ffion Morgan’s pretend beat.’

*Or she would have been if coronavirus hadn’t intervened.
