Review

Who despises emergency department boss Connie Beauchamp so much that he or she would assiduously do everything to ruin every aspect of her life? Yes, I know the answer to that is probably “everyone”, but there’s no need to form a queue – Connie has hit rock bottom.

Social services pay another call after “the incident” with her daughter Grace and even Connie’s plans to spend a special day with the small brat are torpedoed by pesky patients. So Grace ends up teaching her mum a tearful lesson, backed up by granny (Frances Tomelty).

Connie is so beaten down she even gets a special little Greta Garbo moment, complete with sad Casualty music, at the end. Yes, things are that bad.

Summary

Connie is torn between spending time with Grace and dealing with a demanding patient who has been brought in after falling at home, and is suspected by her daughter of manipulating circumstances to her advantage. However, the staff are determined to establish whether or not she has a legitimate condition. Zoe realises life is too short after treating an elderly man who injured himself by falling through a shed roof while attempting to evade a girlfriend. However, on approaching Max to tell him how she feels, she finds the porter in a clinch with a nurse. Amanda Mealing and Sunetra Sarker star.
