Coming in at a whopping ''29'' seasons, the cast is wide, varied and [[LoadsandLoadsofCharacters constantly changing]], not to mention the numerous [[PatientoftheWeek Patients of the Week]]. Incidentally, ''Casualty'' has gained a reputation in recent years, similar to that of ''Series/TheBill'', for featuring many well-known British actors, and [[StarMakingRole launching the career]] of others.

Added DiffLines:

* RoadsideSurgery: the resuscitation room may as well be made an OR with how often it gets used for this. One of the most notable is when Sean and Nick have to operate on Adam, Jessica, and their kids after getting in a car crash that results in spinning off the road into a frozen lake. Though Holby does have an OR, it's still common practice.

* CaptainErsatz / {{Expy}}: Has ''inspired'' shows like ''Series/{{Scrubs}}'' , ''PrivatePractice'' to create expies of their characters! Well, Kath, Staff Nurse Waters and Wayne anyway...

* DysfunctionJunction: In a big way, once you tally up the [[{{Backstory}} backstories]]. If you didn't have a DarkAndTroubledPast before you came here, you will when you leave. {{Lampshaded}} by a, sadly, removed YoutubePoop crossover with LeeEvans, featuring a group shot of the Series 20/21 cast with the voiceover saying, "You think you've got problems?"

* RapeAsDrama: Done a few times (as arcs compared to a PatientOfTheWeek plot), but they manage to beat SturgeonsLaw. [[spoiler:Happened to Duffy, but in the first series so would now be considered RapeAsBackstory. Also to GAWJUS Nurse Tina, proving that even good looking nice girls get raped (actually, to be fair, a rather well done plot line, very well played by Clare Goose)]]

* MeganFox: Rumours circle on showbiz blogs of her appearing as a new nurse, yet nothing is confirmed, it's speculation.

* PlayingWithATrope: Done to ''AustinPowers'' proportions, but maybe not for parody/LampshadeHanging purposes though.

* HospitalHottie: The characters are considered sexy [[{{Fandom}} by the fans]], but the sexiness is unintentional on the part of the production team. In fact, they don't ''emphasise'' it and they dress fairly ordinary, the women sometimes even have no make-up on ([[TropesAreNotBad unless they're injured, in which case, it's obvious]] - make-up for [[SpecialEffect special effects]].). Jeff, for some reason is MrFanservice. Same for its CompanionShow ''Series/HolbyCity''. ''Series/NurseJackie'' takes this UpToEleven though.
