    Casualty is an extraordinary Saturday night filler. There isn't really anything to watch on a Saturday night... Except Casualty of course! There's always a twist and a turn in every episode, and with big changes being made this is just the beginning of a new life for Casualty.. Casualty deserves credit... seeing a their gloves have come off!

    totally amazed, and brilliant love this program
  • What started out as a ground-breaking, realistic Medical DRAMA with the view of showing the machinations of an NHS Hospital through a group of strong, fully formed characters, Casualty is now a vile, unrealistic, disrespectful, wholly insipid SOAP.moreless

    From the very first episode "Gas" I was hooked. The characters were already fully-formed, 3 dimensional human beings, warts and all. A collective of multi-racial, as well as cultural, characters all working for the NHS, and yet even in the first episode, Casualty took great pains in showing the difficulties which can occur in a hospital, politically as well as socially, the difficulties between the staff, the camaraderie, the teamwork, the professionalism, despite either personal or professional difficulties they might be having. It was wonderful.



    However, from mid-Season 16 this wonderful foundation which had been meticulously built over the years began to crumble with a sudden change in format, such as switching from the Nursing Staff's perspective to those of the Consultants/Doctors. This began the slide into what Casualty is today - a glorified, stomach-churning SOAP that the PTBs consistently decline to admit to (despite giving numerous interviews to the SOAP rags). The Paramedics became glorified taxi drivers, the nursing staff became bed pan operators, the walk-in area and therefore the receptionist became almost non-existent, the porters became wheelchair attendants, but the Doctors/Consultants, well they became the department's White Knights in shining Armour, the glory makers of the department and everyone else were their skivvies.



    It breaks my heart that after 24+ years of watching this program I have had to stop because it is that abysmal now. Not one of the characters are believable or inspirational now, save Charlie Fairhead. Gone are the days when Casualty had something to say, whether it was political, social or personal and TV is less smarter because of that.



    Casualty may still be walking and talking, but the heart and the mind of the program are long since dead and have become a zombie of what Casualty first started out as. So so sadmoreless

    Caasualty must be the best hospital drama on the televison and thats coming form a 14 year old girl.

    i do not mind all the blood and gust in fact i find it interessting.

    it always has a interesting story line i have never saw a epsiode where i have been bored and turned it off. i like it when the bring in new doctors and nurse and some are like 'how muh do u bet why she got kick out the old hospital'

    i'm like can this get any better well done the one thing the can do a bit better is not just maje it a one week thing i think they should think about maybe do it on the wednesday as well as there is nothing gd on a wednesday

    well done Casualty keep it upmoreless
