Episode 14: Remember Me - Part One

Summary

As a still-grieving Charlie prepares for Christmas on his own, old friend and nurse Tess arrives, having picked up ED shifts over the festive period. Throughout their shift together, Tess notices Charlie's awful mood, and it's evident that the Covid crisis is taking its toll on him. When Dylan announces they're running out of oxygen cannisters, Charlie's mood worsens, and then a troubled patient from the past returns for revenge

Review

This two-part doomy, gloomy, not-so-festive special is quite odd. It appears to be set not in 2021, but in December 2020, back when the tier system was about to go haywire and our Christmasses would all be ruined.

Yet there’s no plot-specific reason why Casualty has opted to rewind the clock, as the main storyline, which involves the reappearance of Holly Aird as Munchausen by proxy sufferer Laura Merriman, could easily have taken place in the present day. And with on-screen captions not exactly making matters clear, I expect many will be left puzzled by such sights as Iain back working for the helicopter emergency medical service and Charlie grieving so acutely again for Duffy. Rather than being thrilling, it’s borderline baffling.
