Lev lands in hospital
Lev has taken leave from his paramedic duties following wife Faith revealing his sexuality to work colleagues. But the longer Lev stays away from the ED the harder he’s finding it to return.
This week the struggling medic is forced to confront his fears when he indulges in frightening and reckless behaviour at a local motorbike track. Ironically in trying to forget his troubles at the track, Lev ends up in the one place he’s at pains to avoid - Holby ED…
Elsewhere in Casualty…
It’s Iain’s first official day back as a Holby ED paramedic. He’s paired with Fenisha and sparks fly when they take two very different approaches to treating Lev.
Meanwhile, Marty steps up his campaign against the private clinic who operated on his mum, Bibi.
When a cease and desist letter turns up for him at the ED, at first Marty considers giving up, until a heart-to-heart with Jade gives him the courage to continue.
Jade in turn reveals her recent ordeal after having her drink spiked to Marty. They reaffirm their friendship and vow to be a better support to each other in the future.
Elsewhere, Ethan gets a rude awakening about his management style during a staff training day held by a former trainee doctor!
And Charlie makes a lovely appearance for the first time in a which sees him sharing his trademark pearls of wisdom. Welcome back Mr Fairhead!

Ciaran Coulson gets his comeuppance?
In Saturday's second visit to Casualty Marty’s mum Bibi is readmitted to the ED with shocking complications from her vaginal mesh procedure.
Unknown to Bibi, Marty has arranged a face-to-face with the CEO of the private practice who operated on her. It’s safe to say Marty’s shocked when the surgeon he’s meeting turns out to be none other than Ciaran Coulson. (Welcome back Rick Warden!)
Ciaran manages to intimidate Marty until Jan Jenning steps in and gives him a piece of her mind!
Although Jan has promised wife Ffion that she will keep a low profile for the foreseeable, she can’t resist helping Marty set up a sting for Ciaran. Something tells us we're in for a gleeful new storyline!
Elsewhere in Casualty…
Jade’s affecting storyline takes a heartbreaking turn when a patient dies after her drink is spiked. Determined to fight back Jade recruits Robyn in a risky plan…
And, last but not least, Lev reconnects with an old flame! Is he now ready for an exciting new chapter?
This Saturday Casualty airs on BBC1 at 8.40pm and 9.20pm
