In Casualty Paramedic Iain Dean lashes out at an abusive father and nurse Jade Lovall discovers new depths to Marty – but is he hiding something? [This episode was originally meant to be on last Saturday, but was moved due to the tennis!]
Warning: Contains Casualty spoilers about paramedic Iain Dean, nurses David Hide, Jade Lovall, Marty Kirkby, and doctor Dylan Keogh…
Iain Dean loses his temper. Will he lose his job too?
Iain Dean’s recovery from depression and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is tested this week when an urgent news appeal reveals seven-year-old Frankie Harper has gone missing without a trace. Iain (Michael Stevenson) connected with Frankie in Casualty’s Paramedic Special when he answered a 999 call from the young girl, who was trapped in a house fire with her younger sister, Storm and drunk, unconscious Dad, Lee. After she was rescued, Iain visited Frankie at the ED and came to realise how his own childhood with alcoholic mum Kim had affected him.
This week when Iain learns Frankie’s missing, he can’t help breaking the rules about getting personally involved. Desperate to help, Iain visits her heartbroken mum Kailey.
After talking to Kailey, Iain figures out Frankie is at a disused play park, where she shared happy memories with her mum. By the time Iain finds Frankie and performs a daring rescue, however, she’s seriously injured and unconscious…
At the ED while the medical team work to save Frankie, she tells Iain that she ran away after her violent dad Lee demanded access to see her. When Lee turns up and starts throwing his weight around, protective Iain loses his temper and pins Lee to a wall!
Shocked by his own reaction, Iain then disappears in order to cool off. Meanwhile Lee reports Iain to his boss, Jan Jenning!
Will Iain reach out to his friends for help?
Nurse Jade Lovall sees co-worker Marty in a new light
Nurse Charlie Fairhead has big news – one of Holby’s own has won this year’s nursing bursary! Jade, however, is none to pleased to discover the winner is her pal Marty Kirkby. When Jade finds it hard to hide her disappointment and jealously, senior nurse David Hide (Jason Durr) gives her some strong advice, prompting Jade to find out more about her friend. And, after discovering Marty has hidden depths, Jade decides to do something nice for him…
At the presentation ceremony later, will Jade’s grand gesture backfire?
Porter Gem Dean reconsiders her options
Gem is desperately missing boyfriend Rash but realises she can’t join him in his travels around the world as she’s spent too much money on international calls in order to keep in touch!
Nurse Robyn Miller makes Gem a generous offer, but with brother Iain Dean’s depression making its presence known again, could she leave Holby in good conscience?
Also in Casualty this week…
David accidentally puts his foot in it with an unexpected special guest at the bursary presentation ceremony.
Grieving nurse Jacob Masters returns to work, determined to keep busy.
And guest stars Roy Hudd and Isla Blaire keep doctor Dylan Keogh on his toes, as warring neighbours Ken and Alice.
Ken is brought into Holby ED after suffering chest pains and collapsing. Prior to falling ill cantankerous Ken was arguing with his neighbour Alice Jones, who has put her house up for sale.
In a bid to stop her moving Ken, who’s been living next door to Alice for thirty years, dumps rubbish on his driveway to put off prospective buyers!
Ken and Alice’s constant bickering exasperates Dylan, but is there more to their mutual dislike than meets the eye? And is there a lesson in their relationship for some of our Casualty favourites?
Casualty continues on BBC1 this Saturday at 8.25pm
