Casualty is poised to return with the most powerful episode in its 35-year history detailing the current coronavirus health crisis and its devastating impact on hospitals across the United Kingdom. 

The long-running BBC show has tentatively resumed filming after the highly infectious virus, which has claimed the lives of more than 41,000 British citizens, abruptly ground production all TV and film projects to a halt.

And viewers will see its much loved cast members tirelessly work on the NHS frontline as Holby City Hospital reels from the effects of COVID-19.
