Daisy Ridley, Kate Winslet, Tom Hiddleston and more turn out for Casualty’s 30th anniversary collection
Star-spotters, do we have a treat for you?! In celebration of 30 years of Casualty, not only will fans be getting an ingeniously titled feature-length episode, ‘Too Old for this Shift’, that producers promise will make viewers “gasp, laugh and cry buckets”, but the BBC Store has been hard at work putting together a special collection of the medical drama’s best celebrity episodes, which launches tomorrow.
The special collection is comprised of 14 episodes, each of which features an actor who was little known at the time, but has since become a household name. Some of these include:
Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Kick Ass; Godzilla) plays a teenage boy who decides to run away from home with the help of his best friend, who is deaf. He falls victim to a shocking accident and is forced to reveal a secret the boys both share.
Alfred Molina (Anna Karenina; Chocolat), plays a nosey reporter.
Christopher Eccleston (Doctor Who; The A Word) plays an HIV positive gay man.
Daisy Ridley (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) gets into a nasty accident at a fairground ride.
David Walliams (Little Britain) plays the father of a vegan daughter who is admitted to hospital undernourished.
Helen Baxendale (Cold Feet; Friends) plays an impressionable youth who is indoctrinated by a cult.
Jerome Flynn (Game Of Thrones; Ripper Street) plays a businessman who pushed his wife too far alongside Julia Sawalha (Absolutely Fabulous; Pride And Prejudice).
Jonny Lee Miller (Trainspotting; Dexter) plays a school bully picking on a boy who falls in love with his teacher on a school trip.
Kate Winslet (Titanic; The Reader) plays a girl who discovers abuse in her boyfriend’s family.
Kathy Burke (Nil By Mouth; Tinker Taylor Soldier Spy) plays the stressed daughter of a man suffering from schizophrenia.
Martin Freeman (The Hobbit; Sherlock) plays a jack-the-lad whose dodgy antics land him in trouble.
Orlando Bloom (Pirates Of The Caribbean; Lord Of The Rings) plays a builder who injures himself and is in need of special attention.
Tom Hiddleston (The Night Manager; Avengers) abseils down a building leading to a terrible accident.
