There’s a familiar old face in Casualty this week – Fletch (Alex Walkinshaw) has descended from the lofty heights of Darwin ward to visit the ED. The reason for his visit is not such good news, as he’s been contacted by Jacob (Charles Venn) who’s worried about Charlie (Derek Thompson)’s recent behaviour.
Since Duffy died Charlie has been distracted, making simple mistakes and not being his usual supportive self to other staff members. Fletch and Charlie have a meeting arranged, but Jacob cautions Fletch to take it easy on their beloved colleague as they both know he’s been going through a hard time.
Jacob really just wants Fletch to give Charlie some support and guidance, but at the same time he can’t help but be concerned as Charlie continues to make mistakes and forget things and he’s obviously not himself at all.
When a patient comes in who’s the carer for her mother who has dementia, Charlie finds himself dealing with a sensitive and ever-changing situation – and he makes a mistake which might cost him dearly.
Lev (Uriel Emil) and Faith (Kirsty Mitchell) are supporting their son Luka (Tom Mulheron) as he faces his first round of chemotherapy. Once again the parents find themselves with different attitudes to Luka’s illness and Lev in particular struggles to stay positive.
Then Noel (Tony Marshall) shows him that there’s always another way to approach a problem, and with a bit of help from a patient Lev thinks he’s found a way to help the whole family.
Ruby (Maddy Hill)’s mum sends her some videos to let her know how Harmony is getting on, and Ruby can’t help thinking she’s made a terrible decision. Will she change her mind about keeping the baby after all?
