A regular Casualty plot device is to place frail-looking nursing sister Tess in a situation where aggressive men are causing trouble. She then gives them what for, whereupon they fall sheepishly into line. This mouse-that-roared routine comes in handy when she stumbles on an Asian student being beaten up in an alley. She chases off the hooded youths, but naturally it transpires that both the victim and the main attacker end up in A&E. She’s also dealing with all those texts Fletch keeps sending her. He’s a tryer, that one.


While out for a jog, Tess is forced to intervene in the stabbing of a teenager, and when the victim arrives at the hospital, she continues to console him. However, when an agitated mother turns up with her wounded son, Tess identifies him as one of the attackers. Meanwhile, Charlie comes to the aid of a couple whose relationship is feeling the strain of the wife's long-term illness.
