Born Lucky

Series 29 - Episode 5 Born Lucky



Cars flip over week after week on Casualty. In fact, it’s a surprise that the BBC don’t permanently have the roads of Cardiff closed off to film its stunts. But the stakes are higher following this episode's smash-up thanks to the fact that the vehicle in question contains many of our favourite characters. Yes, it’s one of those “we need to save our own” episodes when the lives of the medics themselves are at risk – and very good is it, too.

Cal has to operate on his injured brother Ethan, Connie has blood splashed decoratively over her forehead and Ash is trapped in the car yelling in agony. And then just when you think you’re second-guessing the scriptwriters, the rug is pulled out from under you…


Connie celebrates the department hitting its targets by taking a few select members of her team out for the day. However, the medics soon lose their way, and as they focus on maps and sat-navs, minibus driver Ethan takes his eye off the road for one second too long - leading to a horrifying collision. Connie manages to get to her phone, but will the ambulance be in time to save her and the others? Back at Holby, as Jeff's relationship with Tamzin takes another step, he finally makes it clear to Dixie where she stands, while Cal faces embarrassment when two old flames turn up at the hospital.
