Casualty has released a first look at its new block of episodes, Storm Damage, with a brand new trailer unveiling the medical drama's return to screens this summer.


There are a gripping few months ahead of the popular BBC series, with secrets and truths rising to the surface.

Within the two-minute long trailer, Barney Walsh's character, Cam, is at the front and centre, and can be heard saying: "I can't be here anymore. I don't want to be here."

It shows Cam to be struggling, with people venting and shouting at him left, right and centre. Other characters appear to be at breaking point, too, with Jacob (Charles Venn) and Jan (Di Botcher) attempting to balance their personal and professional lives.

Elsewhere in the trailer, there is a flash-flood that haunts the hospital, with multiple people's lives at risk.

As per the synopsis for Storm Damage, Cam and Siobhan (Melanie Hill) "face their most traumatic shift yet".

It continues: "Haunted in the aftermath, Cam is left questioning whether the chaos of the ED is for him. But to face his future, Cam has no choice but to confront his past when it washes into Holby…"

With Cam's storyline taking centre stage, Barney Walsh What To Watch it is "really exciting" to be under the spotlight in Storm Damage.

"So far, there's been a lot of light relief with Cam – either he's losing blood results or getting yelled at, he even lost a dead body in his first episode! To lead one of the storylines in the new box set and to explore the reasons why he's like this, is an absolute honour for me."
