Thirty Years

Series 31



Charlie and Duffy are flirting laboriously while behaving like Shaggy and Velma in Scooby-Doo, playing a prank on Jacob, giggling and hiding.

But Charlie is serious when he asks, “Do you fancy coming round to mine tonight for dinner… I can promise wine.” Ooh-er, get in! What else can you promise, Charlie – cheese and crackers? Wafer-thin mints?

The pair have been secretly in love for 30 years, the whole of Casualty’s lifetime, so surely they need just to get on with it. But can they ever find the time and the privacy to declare themselves when Duffy’s very pregnant daughter-in- law arrives in the emergency department?

In another exciting development… Lily’s in love! Aw, bless.


A spark of attraction remains between Charlie and Duffy, but with the status of Duffy's struggling marriage still unconfirmed, neither seems brave enough to take the plunge and ask the other out. However, when Duffy's pregnant daughter-in-law turns up the ED, the star-crossed pair find themselves delivering a baby - and repeating history. Meanwhile, Dylan discovers his new student Sebastian is the son of one of Holby's established surgical consultants, and is feeling the pressure of living up to his father's lofty expectations.
