How will the staff of Holby ED cope in this special Casualty episode filmed in one continuous take?
It’s the long awaited one-shot episode of Casualty and we think fans will be impressed. In fact, even if you’ve not watched Casualty since the 1980s, this makes for exhilarating TV…
Filmed in one continuous take, the final episode of the current series of Casualty is called One and it follows an ensemble of Casualty characters as they deal with a typical day in the ED.
The shift starts explosively when paramedics Jez and Iain attend a terrifying house fire. Later at Holby ED the medical team deal with the fall-out of what turns out to be an arson attack, in which a baby is still unaccounted for. From consoling a stricken mother and a furious father, to putting aside personal feelings to treat the suspected arsonists the entire ED team have their work cut out for them.

Meanwhile, nurse Duffy (Cathy Shipton) has to contend with two work experience students – one of whom is determined to stir up trouble on the ED. And doctor Ethan Hardy is clearly distracted – we can’t imagine why that is…
