We haven't watched it recently as it did seem to become more like a soap opera, the private lives of the staff taking priority.

However, tonight's episode and it is quite compelling and realistic. It is interpersed with views and comments from real NHS staff and is a tribute to 75 years of the NHS.

I can recommend it.

I thought the format was far better than the usual Casualty dramas.

Callistemon21 Sat 15-Jul-23 21:34:38

It was quite different, far more realistic.

I watch it weekly hail, rain or shine and I agree, last night's was definitely better than usual. It is so much better if they stay within the hospital, the drama is more realistic.

I think the problem is like Coronation Street, there is a multitude of writers so we get daft plots.

I agree it was very good last night. Made me think a bit more about how staff have to manage and the effects on them.

Thought it was more like a documentary than a drama. Interesting though......

I haven’t seen Casualty for years, but might seek this episode out, Thanks, Callistemon.

Our 7 year old DGS had us foxed for ages in a game of charades, strolling round and round the dining table with a few shrugs and a couldn’t care less look on his face.

Clue: a TV programme.
