Duffy Returns To Casualty For 30th Anniversary

Duffy, played by Cathy Shipton, will return to Casualty in a cameo role to celebrate the show’s 1000th episode ahead of a permanent role with the Holby Emergency Team in August.

On Sunday 26th June, Duffy pops down from the obstetrics and gynaecology department and reveals to Charlie that she left her husband and children in New Zealand and is back working as an agency nurse in Holby.

Cathy, who was one of the show’s original cast members when it launched in 1986, says: “The future looks very exciting for Duffy both professionally and personally, and I am equally excited to be working with such a talented and creative team of actors, writers, directors and producers.”

Executive Producer, Oliver Kent, adds: “We know that our viewers loved her brief return last year and now it’s completely thrilling to have her with us full-time. The dream team of Charlie and Duffy are back together again. Long live CHUFFY.”

Casualty celebrates 30 years of broadcasting this August on BBC One, and is the longest-running emergency medical drama television series in the world.
