Casualty’s newest chapter has been announced, and viewers may need a bigger umbrella to weather all 12 new episodes of stormy drama on the horizon!

Here’s everything you need to know about Storm Damage…

Casualty Storm Damage — 6th in the box set format

Storm Damage is set to be one of the most shocking in BBC medical drama’s history.

It marks the sixth Casualty box set in the new multi-episode format, which kicked off back in January 2023 with In Plain Sight. This was followed by Welcome to the Warzone, Driving Force, A History of Violence, and Breaking Point - which came to a conclusion last week. All previous boxsets are available to watch on BBC iPlayer. 

Storm Damage — picking up after Breaking Point 

Breaking Point closed with The Last Post episode, where negligent clinical lead Patrick Onley (played to great effect by Jamie Glover) was ousted from Holby Hospital, doctor Rash Masum (a heartbreaking performance from Neet Mohan) was saved by the ED team after tragically planning to take his life, and consultant Dylan Keogh (portrayed by the ever-brilliant William Beck) received the results of his autism tests, which he choose to keep to himself. 

And viewers were left with questions. The most pressing being:

* Could Patrick return? (A: Never say never!)

* Who would take over as clinical lead? (A: We can reveal, it's Siobhan McKenzie, played by Melanie Hill.) 

* Will Rash recover and return to work? (A: Recovery takes time and support. If you're affected by this storyline, help is available).

* What effect would these events have on junior doctor Tariq Hussein (Manpreet Bachu) and paramedic Iain Dean (Michael Stevenson), who found Rash unconscious on his bedroom floor and battled to save him when his heart stopped? (A: Substantial) 

* And what was going to happen with junior doctor Nicole Piper’s (Sammy Dobson) surrogacy storyline? (A: There's a difficult journey ahead for the aspiring consultant) 

Storm Damage spoilers beyond this point

Storm Damage — spoilers

Not only will all these cliffhangers be explored in the upcoming box set, new high pressure stories will be unleashed!

BBC have provided us with the below gale-force spoilers about what lies ahead for the Holby community, as “secrets and truths rise to the surface…”  

Here are seven stories to watch out for:

Cam Mickelthwaite — secret past

Band 5 nurse, Cam Mickelthwaite (Barney Walsh) and clinical nurse manager, Siobhan McKenzie (Melanie Hill) are caught in a city-wide flash-flood in the opening episode of Storm Damage. 

As they face their most traumatic shift yet, Cam is haunted in the aftermath and left questioning whether the chaos of the ED is for him. But, whatever he decides, if he wants to face his future, he has no choice but to confront his past when it unexpectedly wades into town…

Iain Dean — family matters

Newly reconciled with Advanced Clinical Practitioner Faith Cadogan (Kirsty Mitchell), paramedic Iain (Michael Stevenson) finds his footing as a father-figure. But, just as he and the youngest of Faith’s three children, Luka (Tom Mulheron) are growing closer, the newly-knit family come under threat. How far will Iain go to protect them and what they have?

Dylan Keogh — friendly zone

With Patrick Onley out of the picture, senior consultant Dylan Keogh (William Beck) thrives in the workplace. That is until new Psych Liaison Nurse, Sophia Peters, (Kellie Shirley - more below) enters stage left and the mismatched pair quickly clash! That said, hope springs eternal that Dylan will discover a warm new friendship rather than another chilly foe…

Jacob Masters — home truths

Paramedic Jacob Masters (Charles Venn) and his boss Jan Jenning (Di Botcher) are now living together and have formed a support network, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t struggling to juggle 999 calls and nursery drop-offs as they care for Jacob’s grandson, Carter. They’re put under even more pressure as Jacob intensifies the search for Carter’s father and his son, Blake. Will they be able to balance the personal and professional?

Rash Masum and Tariq Hussein — challenges ahead

Doctor Rash Masum (Neet Mohan) acclimates to being back in the ED after a period off work, with his junior doctor cousin Tariq Hussein (Manpreet Bachu) by his side. But as Tariq steps up to be Rash’s rock, will anyone look out for the younger medic before he crumbles, as the pressures of life begin to chip away at him?

Siobhan McKenzie — tested

Siobhan is promoted to the position of Holby ED clinical lead, a role which has left a highway of broken medics in its rearview mirror. Yet, could anyone be better suited?

While the role will test the senior medic, Siobhan is undoubtedly equal to it, it's unlikely to leave her unscathed...

Ryan Hawley — Jamie Cleveland 

We’ve been given the green light to reveal that Emmerdale star Ryan Hawley makes his presence felt as enigmatic new character, Jamie Cleveland, who shares a past with Cam. The nurse is shocked to see him at Holby ED and quickly learns that Jamie has been newly appointed to the Holby Hospital board. 

Speaking to WTW Barney Walsh revealed: “Jamie is someone who was a kind-of mentor to Cam growing up, and it’s very interesting for Cam to see him again. We will allude to Cam’s past and explore the reasons why he’s such a shy, timid character as well as his struggles as a Band 5 Nurse.” The full interview is available here 

Ryan Hawley is probably best known for his role as Robert Sugden in Emmerdale. His other credits include the 2008 Survivors reboot, Father Brown, Silent Witness and All Creatures Great and Small

Remember how sparks flew when Stevie first met the fireman at a car crash (how's that for a metaphor?)... Well, tonight, after some encouragement from Siobhan (yes, really!), she meets up with her boss’s hubby and one thing leads to another. As of yet neither woman knows about the other, but it’s clear that Rich is playing with fire…
