Former executive producer, Oliver Kent, revealed on 5 August 2016 that the show's production team had planned storylines for the beginning of series 32.[43] Series 32 was officially confirmed on 30 July 2017, with the announcement of a two-part opener special, set in northern France. The special, which was filmed in Fishguard and Cardiff, featured Dylan, David, Louise and Alicia offering their medical talents at a refugee camp. In the special, Dylan bonded with a 12-year-old, Sanosi, and his sister, Mariam. It was reported Dylan was to "[find] himself in a difficult situation over their future".[26] Beck enjoyed not filming on-set and was proud to portray the story, commenting, "The main thing however was the importance of telling this story, which has been slightly forgotten in the news recently, and realising, when you boil it down to one human story, just how relevant it still is."[26] It was also announced that episode 3 of the series would be an extended special, lasting 70 minutes and would feature the results from the inquest into Scott's death.[26]

On 7 September 2017, Sophie Dainty of Digital Spy interviewed Raffety, who confirmed that the show had ceased to use episode titles. She explained that the task of creating titles is "incredibly difficult", which could be proven by the number of reused titles and opined that they made the show feel "dated".[16] Raffety went on to reveal that the show will be airing a "very big, very current, very topical and quite controversial story" as of spring 2018, which will culminate in the series finale.[16] Raffety added that the storyline has divided the crew and the cast, and that the build-up to the end of the series would be "very different in feel".[16] On 9 May 2018, it was announced that episodes broadcast in August 2018 would feature a motorway crash and a petrol tanker turning on its side. The scenes are billed as "unmissable", "dramatic" and "shocking", and were filmed in Yate in Bristol.[44]

On 8 December 2017, Casualty released a trailer previewing storylines airing in Winter, including Connie's battle with a heart tumour, Dylan's alcoholism, Ethan's promotion to clinical lead and an acid attack.[45] The trailer also displayed the return of Zoe Hanna and the guest appearances of Jac Naylor and Sally Hodge.[45] Tom Chapman of Digital Spy also noted that "there is a warming winter glow of festive spirit interspersed between the trials and tribulations of the ED."[45] On 10 May 2018, it was announced that a new storyline, featuring Alicia being raped by Eddie, would begin in May and continue for six weeks. The show worked with Rape Crisis England and Wales for the storyline. Halfpenny felt "a distinct sense of responsibility" for the story and believed that the show had portrayed the story accurately.[46] Katie Russell, working for Rape Crisis, hoped that the story would help detract from the idea that rape is taboo. She added, "Casualty has made efforts to explore this topic responsibly and carefully".[46]

Reception[edit]

The first episode of the series, part one of the two-part special, received praise from viewers on Twitter. Viewers enjoyed the portrayal of the refugee crisis and commended the show for highlighting the issue, with comments including, "Well done [Casualty] for highlighting the harsh reality of what refugees go through every single day. It needs to stop" and "A powerful, moving & hard-hitting ep of #casualty addressing the #refugeecrisis."[47] Other viewers found the episode "heartbreaking" and "dramatic" and the cinematography and style of the episode "beautiful" and "excellent".[47] Viewers also enjoyed the bromance between Dylan and David, with one viewer calling it "the best Casualty thing" since Nick Jordan (Michael French) appeared on the show.[47]

On 10 October 2017, Casualty was revealed to have made it into the longlist for the National Television Awards 2018, under the drama category.[48] The show progressed to the shortlist in January 2018.[49] Casualty was shortlisted in the "Best Soap/Continuing Drama" category at the 2018 Broadcast Awards, but lost out to Channel 4 soap opera Hollyoaks.[50] Judges praised the drama for its portrayal of an emergency department, commenting, "Casualty delivered one of the most moving and realistic depictions of the powerlessness of nurses in a crisis situation".[50] Casualty was then nominated for a BAFTA on 4 April 2018, under the "Soap and Continuing Drama" category, alongside Coronation Street, Emmerdale and Hollyoaks.[51] The show was successful, winning the award for the second time.[52] The drama was nominated in the "Best Soap (Evening)" category at the 2018 Digital Spy Reader Awards; it came in last place with 3.8% of the total votes.[53]
