With the release of its spring trailer, Casualty has today given viewers a glimpse of an enthralling few months ahead for the popular medical drama.
Coming up, Robyn (Amanda Henderson) must come to a decision about her unexpected pregnancy. Faith (Kirsty Mitchell) is caught up in a cycle of partying but her world comes crashing down when Luka (Tom Mulheron) is targeted by a predator.
Matthew’s (Osi Okerafor) past trauma returns to haunt him when he faces an impossible choice between treating two critically injured patients. Matthew’s fledging relationship with Stevie (Elinor Lawless) is also put under strain as he struggles to deal with events that have happened in his past.
Paramedic Teddy (Milo Clarke) ignores important signs about his own health, leading to potentially serious consequences. Iain (Michael Stevenson) goes beyond the call of duty to rescue a patient, putting himself in harm’s way in the process, but his heroic tendencies put a strain on his relationship with Chrissie (Lauren Crace). Sah (Erin Smethurst) is confronted by an old bully, and David’s (Jason Durr) son Olly’s (Harry Collett) struggles with social isolation and depression lead to devastating consequences.
Loretta Preece, Series Producer of Casualty says: “It’s going to be a roller coaster ride in Holby hospital this spring. There are difficult choices for Robyn and Teddy, harsh consequences for Stevie and Faith and a hard hitting, action packed and very poignant story for Iain.
It’s a season full of adrenaline and betrayal as well as love, friendship and tenderness. Rosie Jones has really touched viewers hearts as Paula and in April we will discover whether the courts will allow her to take her baby back. And after all Ethan has been through this series, might he be ready to move on from Fenisha’s memory?”
