BBC Casualty viewers need ’48 hours to recover’ after Charlie exit scenes

BBC Casualty fans have broken down in tears as Derek Thompson’s last ever scenes as Charlie Fairhead were aired. The consultant’s life was left hanging in the balance after being stabbed on last week’s episode, with the fallout airing on March 16.

While fans were left scared the iconic character would be killed off, they were stunned to learn he survived the ordeal. The life-threatening incident ultimately led to Charlie deciding to retire from the hospital, marking the end of an era.
