ProductionEdit

The thirty-fourth series consists of 43 episodes.[1] Lucy Raffety continues her role as series producer while Simon Harper remains as the executive producer.[2] Raffety's resignation from her position was announced on 16 April 2019,[3] and she was replaced by Loretta Preece.[4] Raffety and Preece were co-credited as series producer from episode 5,[5] and Raffety confirmed that her stories would be broadcast until December.[6]

Raffety previewed the series in an interview with Elaine Reilly of What's on TV, where she confirmed the theme of the series is "The NHS Under Pressure" and how the staff are working in a struggling environment.[6] Harper echoed this, stating that the theme would be about "an NHS at critical breaking point".[7] Preece also told Sophie Dainty of Digital Spy that the series would follow "the hierarchy of pressure on the doctors", in particular junior doctors such as Rash and Mason.[4] Raffety told Reilly that the series would feature new stories for Dylan, Ethan and David,[6] while Preece mentioned that Rash would experience a "moving journey" during the series.[4] She also divulged that the series would also explore whether the NHS would be able to help Charlie and Duffy after they have "invested their whole adult lives" into the service.[4] Preece stated that her plans for Casualty included "contemporary" guest artist stories and more comedy in the ED, while also creating more "action and drama".[4]

It was announced on 18 March 2020 that production had been suspended on Casualty and other BBC Studios continuing dramas in light of government guidelines following the COVID-19 pandemic. A BBC Studios statement confirmed that there would be no impact on the immediate broadcast of episodes, but the "long-term ramifications are still unclear".[8] The programme's Twitter account confirmed that episodes would broadcast for "as long as [they] can".[9] An episode, which was planned to be episode 33 of the series and broadcast on 2 May 2020, was pulled from airing after being deemed "inappropriate" because of the pandemic.[10] The following episode was brought forward to air in the slot. The pulled episode features the ED team dealing with a viral outbreak; scenes considered important to storylines were included in the catch-up section of the aired episode.[10] Episode 42, which is the final episode filmed before production was suspended, was broadcast on 22 August 2020. Following this, the show entered a transmission break.[11] It was announced on 16 September 2020 that the pulled episode would be broadcast as episode 43 on 26 September. Kate Oates, the head of continuing drama at BBC Studios, said that she was "proud" of the episode and "excited" to broadcast it and watch "the whole ED come together to tackle an invisible threat".[12] Production of Casualty resumed in September 2020,[13] but episodes recommenced with series 35.[14]

PromotionEdit

The series was promoted through multiple trailers and each episode received a preview clip before broadcast.[15] A trailer for the series was released on 14 August 2019, three days before the series premiere. It features segments from the early episodes of the series and Caitlin Butler of Digital Spy named the returns of Dixie and Rash, and a "tragic" story involving David and Oliver as highlights.[16]
