Doctor Ethan Hardy’s (played by George Rainsford) life is put in serious danger this week as he desperately tries to help the victims of a terrorist attack after a lorry is deliberately driven into a busy marketplace.

The drama unfolds while Ethan is in the middle of a driver-training refresher course with HEMS (Helicopter Emergency Medical Service), alongside his gruff but good-natured instructor ‘Big Al’ (former The Bill star Sam Callis)

Ethan and Al are first on the scene and attempt help a father called Andy and his daughter, Jenny, who are trapped in the chaos. Shortly after freeing Andy, all emergency personnel are told to evacuate when sniffer dogs detect a bomb.

Ethan is torn between staying with Jenny and seeking cover when the bomb explodes.

Will anyone survive the deadly blast?

With Connie’s sudden departure ‘due to personal reasons’ announced to the team, it’s up to doctor Dylan Keogh (William Beck) to reluctantly step into the role of clinical lead. Is his level-headedness exactly what’s needed during a crisis?

Elsewhere, still recovering from last week’s near-fatal stabbing, Archie’s (Genesis Lynea) frustrated that she’s unable to assist her colleagues. Will she find a way to help?

Reprising their semi-regular guest roles this week are Kriss Dosanjh who plays Rash’s dad Ashlock, Lorraine Pilkington, as David’s ex wife Rosa and Harry Collett as Ollie.
