Casualty: Not just a patient

(Series 30, ep. 22) After the shift he just had, Ethan is possibly wishing he’d gone through with his resignation. He could have been sunning himself on a beach in Australia – though I expect “sunning himself,” for Ethan, would mean crouching under a beach blanket trying to keep a grip on some learned volume of medical lore with hands slippery with Factor 50. 414 more words


Casualty: Cal withstands Charlie’s stare for two episodes

(Series 30, ep. 17 & 18) The last time I dipped my toe into a Casualty review, Cal had just discovered his birth mother has Huntington’s and there’s a 50/50 chance that either he, Ethan or both might have inherited it. 382 more words

Bye-bye, 2015

And so another busy year of theatre-going draws to a close.  I’ve seen a lot of shows, most of which have been excellent and so I’m preparing an end-of-year review that I’ll post between Christmas and New Year. 130 more words


Casualty: Get that hunk out of my ED!

(Series 30, ep. 15) Jacob Masters. He sounds like a superhero, doesn’t he? And there he is, 6’1” (I looked him up on IMDb) of solid muscle, lovely teeth and a winning way with a bandage. 446 more words


Casualty: Cal’s left holding the baby

(Series 30, ep.8) If you hadn’t seen the red button episode last week you might have been a bit bewildered to see Cal and Ethan now living with a very tiny baby. 369 more words
