Our hearts go out to doctor Alicia Munroe again this week in Casualty, as she finds it increasingly difficult to cope at work. Constantly on edge Alicia battles to contain her feelings and struggles to be in the same room as junior doctor Eddie McAllister, who recently attacked her.

Matters come to a head when stressed Alicia loses her temper with Eddie while treating a patient, causing her to misdiagnose the man under her care. Later, when furious Connie demands to know what happened, Eddie covers for Alicia – but does he have ulterior motives?
