We've gone cold on Casualty since Duffy was written out in the most unlikely storyline in the history of the series ("Good news, everyone. I've forgiven the man who conned me out of all my money, and we're running away together").
But we might be prepared to give it another chance when the new series starts in September after hearing the news that Maxwell Caulfield, of Grease 2 and The Colbys fame, is joining the cast as paediatrician Jim Brodie.
We're still quivering with excitement over his TV wife, Emma Samms, popping up as a guest star in Holby City, so this new development might be what finally sends us over the edge.
An actor of Calfield's calbre is just what Casualty needs to sink it to the bottom of the lowculture barrel, and we look forward to documenting his fucking awfulness on a weekly basis.

According to Marxist theory, cultural forms such as opera, classical music and the literary works of Shakespeare all fall under the heading of high culture. Low culture refers to a wide variety of cultural themes that are characterised by their consumption by the masses.
We might not be Marxists, but we do know we loved Footballers Wives. If you do too, you'll know what this is all about.
