This is far from being the first time this year that Casualty has had to make way in the schedule.

At least this time Casualty fans have plenty of warning unlike in the summer when the show was dropped at the last minute due to Wimbledon as a mixed doubles match involving Andy Murray and Serena Williams over ran.

Casualty was also cleared from the schedules earlier in the year to make way for the Last Night of the Proms and the Eurovision Song Contest.
