History

New Series Producer Alexei de Keyser brought new ambition and strength to the already popular medical drama. With another increase to 30 episodes and three 2-parters, Casualty delved even deeper into the lives of the Holby staff including Eve’s euthanasia exit, a love triangle between Tina, Sean and Chloe ending in Chloe having an abortion and married Duffy’s brief fling with Max Gallagher. Charlie was not amused by this.

Sam recovered from his fall only to quit nursing and Sunny also later quit after being suspended for hitting a patient. Series 14 also saw some popular newcomers; SHO Holly Miles, Staff Nurse Barney Woolfe and probably Casualty’s most popular medic to date Patrick Spiller joined mid-way through the series.

Casualty took it’s series endings to a new level when it filmed it’s first episode overseas. Tina follows Sean out to Australia to declare her love. ‘When we knew Claire and Gerald were leaving at the end of the series, we could have done it the easy way and killed them both off in a dramatic finale, but we also knew Casualty could be quite dour, with a lot of people dying. We didn’t want to end on a low point. Also Tina has been so often the victim – we wanted to see her come out winning’. While Sean proposed to Tina in the outback, at Holby Holly was getting emotionally involved in a case with her neighbour’s children and Charlie collapsed in the hospital toilets. Casualty couldn’t end without one cliffhanger however. Trying to deal with regular patient Leona, stressed Charlie headed to the toilets and collapsed. We’d have to wait till next series to see if Charlie made it to face another day in Holby.
