DO NOT STAND AT MY GRAVE AND WEEP
Shortly after Lee's return to our TV screens in Holby City, Lofty is also seen again on Casualty when he attends Cal's funeral. The episode features heavily in Casualty's Summer Trailer from which the image (right) is taken. Lofty's appearance was brief, and judging by the judicious framing during much of the funeral service itself, Lee was present for only part of the shoot, but it was a worthy use of that rare beast, the Holby/Casualty crossover!
Originally scheduled for broadcast on 10 June, the previous episode was postponed due to a storyline that was considered inappropriate in the immediate aftermath of the Manchester attack, so this crossover ep for Lee was deferred until Saturday 17 June.
Synopsis: The day of Cal's funeral arrives, and Ethan delivers a drunken, heartfelt eulogy that leaves both Iain and Lily worried about his wellbeing. Meanwhile, a school trip to France comes to an abrupt end when a scuffle on board the coach causes it to crash. As a result, the ED is inundated with teenage patients, including Sean, whose unusual vitamin tablets ring alarm-bells for the staff, and Sky, whose mother is a long-term advocate of alternative medicine, and is not happy about her daughter receiving an X-ray scan.
The full episode will be available to watch on BBC iPlayer until Monday 17 July while below, with my apologies to those of the cast who have hit the cutting room floor, is the 'Meady bits' edit. Screencaps to follow!
