SERIES 29, EPISODE 35 - THE WAY HOME
Lofty had been out of the department (and Lee off our screens) since early May as the break he took from filming for panto last Christmas hit the broadcast schedule, and as expected, his return tonight was fleeting - a couple of quick chats at the nurses' station, some background nursing, a cheeky aside in the staff room and some moral support for Robyn as she dips her toe in the dating pool, but he was back in the ED after only three episodes missed so that'll do for now!
I suspect we may be in for more of the same for the next couple of weeks, but I have not yet lost hope that the 'good storylines' Lee has mentioned in interviews from time to time will soon materialise.
Synopsis: Connie's back and trying out a new leadership technique - but to win her team's respect she needs to be herself. Dylan has lost his confidence - when a patient dies in his care in the ED, following a team building exercise which went wrong, things get worse for him.
Louis finds himself back in the ED after he sticks up for a teenage girl - and everyone finds out about his heroin addiction. After another overdose Charlie tells Louis they're all each other's got. Meanwhile, hot blood bank guy (and I quote the BBC press release on that one!) asks Robyn out.
The full episode will be available to watch on BBC iPlayer until Monday 13 July, and there are also a few screencaps for your enjoyment. Finally, with my ever grateful thanks to the anonymous editor and my apologies to those of the cast who have hit the cutting room floor, here's the 'Meady bits' edit!
Details of all Lee's episodes can be found at CASUALTY INDEX.
