Robyn’s trauma is far from over in Casualty. Will she reject both mentally ill friend David and her seriously sick baby in one day?

After giving birth prematurely in a graveyard last week you’d think nurse Robyn Miller would be due a break. But testing tragedies keep coming her way in this week’s Casualty

At first Robyn (Amanda Henderson) puts on a brave face as her daughter starts life in neonatal intensive care. But Robyn’s mask begins to slip as baby Charlotte – Charlie for short, after nurse Charlie Fairhead – develops an infection.

It’s a terrible time and when Robyn learns her former friend David has phoned the ward to check on mother and baby, she’s filled with sudden anger. In fact, she’s determined to march up to the psych ward and give David what for. Can anyone calm her down?

Later, seeing how distressed and alone Robyn is, Duffy asks Robyn and Charlotte to live with her and new husband Charlie. Yet Charlie’s gloomy reaction to Duffy’s invitation threatens to drive a wedge between the newlyweds! Sensing she’s not wanted, exhausted Robyn feels like giving up…

Then the tiny newborn’s condition worsens and she needs risky surgery! Will defeated Robyn be there as Charlotte fights for her life? Or will it prove too much for the young nurse, who’s at breaking point?

Also this week, the daughter of a dying woman threatens to make a complaint against Cal. Realising this could jeopardise his career in surgery, will Cal put his own interests above those of grieving Neeve? (Neeve is played by comedian Rhona Cameron)

Also guest starring this week is Peak Practice’s Simon Shepherd, as baby Charlotte’s exhausted surgeon, Dr Jonathan Barling. While Goodnight Sweetheart’s Michelle Holmes, brings comfort to Robyn as neonatal nurse, Jude Rivers.
