Who's who, from iconic Charlie Fairhead to all the new nurses

Casualty fans know the emergency department has never been an easy place to work and Casualty 2023 is no different! It’s stressful and often downright dangerous. But while some staff arrive only for a short while, others stick around and become part of the furniture!

With so much action happening inside the emergency department and on the road with the paramedics, it’s sometimes hard to keep track of who’s who in Casualty.

So here’s our rundown of everyone who’s in the cast in Casualty 2023.

Charlie is the backbone of the emergency department at Holby General. He’s been in the show since the very beginning and now, with his credentials as an emergency nurse practitioner making him a vital cog in the machine! He’s no stranger to drama, having lost his partner, Baz, in an accident and almost dying himself several times, including in a siege at the hospital! Charlie got together with Duffy, delighting the fans, but she developed vascular dementia and passed away. Sob!

Doctor Dylan is a recovering alcoholic with a difficult past. He had a messy break up with ex-wife Sam and later had a toxic relationship with Ciara, who he met at an AA meeting.
