Hello guys, and welcome to my first article for Habbox! Recently, BBC1 medical drama Casualty was celebrating its 30th anniversary. A special feature-length episode was aired to mark the occasion, which went down a blast with viewers. Continue reading to find out what drama happened during the episodes. You can also find out what Articles Manager, Martin thought of the episode!
The drama all began with Clinical Lead Connie driving along with her daughter Grace at her side, followed in hot pursuit by angry parent Steph Sims. In a shocking turn of events, Steph sped up alongside Connie’s car and nudged it off the road and down a steep cliff. The episode ended on a dramatic cliffhanger, with the car in which Connie and Grace were travelling nose-diving from the cliff. Surely the pair would die from such a horrific smash?
The feature-length episode opens with the aftermath from crash, with viewers having been kept waiting almost a month to find out the fate of Connie and her daughter. We eventually learn that both have survived the fall, with Connie being taken in the ambulance to the ED and her daughter Grace being taken by air ambulance. More drama was set to follow though. A young boy would soon cause absolute carnage for the ED department, and more misery for Connie, when the drone in which he is flying collides with the air ambulance. The helicopter plummets to the ground, damaging the ED, causing serious injury and death to many and turning the situation into a full blown emergency. We have since learned that Grace is suffering with serious head injuries, so the misery may not completely be over for Connie yet!
Articles Manager, Martin is also a huge fan of Casualty, and here’s what he had to say about the feature-length episode:
“I absolutely loved the feature-length episode, and for me this was Casualty at its best! The return of old characters and cameo appearances from Holby City characters just added to the realism of Charlie’s celebrations. Seeing old favourites Charlie, Josh and Duffy reunited in action was spectacular and heartwarming to see. I thought the stunt of the plane crash was done so well- you could sense just how destructive and deadly the blades of the helicopter were.
I do feel that after the cliffhanger we were presented with in the previous episode, Connie and Grace’s injuries were a lot less severe than I was expecting, having thought that nobody could survive a fall from that height! For me, Casualty is all about the drama, and whenever they do a big episode they pull it off really well. I thought newcomer Elle was fantastic and her reaction to the situation and her calm leadership skills really helped the situation. It was great seeing Jac from Holby City paying a visit too! Overall I was hooked for the entire episode and didn’t want it to end! Whilst 1 hour 50 minutes may seem a long time, it absolutely flew by (no pun intended), and the acting was spot on! Well done Casualty!”
