Casualty is going to finally reveal who is taking over as clinical lead after Amanda Mealing's Connie Beauchamp left the BBC One show earlier this year.

Dylan Keogh (William Beck) has been standing in as acting clinical lead since then, but this Saturday night's (October 16) episode will reveal that he isn't necessarily going to step up to the role full time.

The episode takes place on his last day as acting clinical lead and, as you'd expect, everything goes wrong, especially with Ethan Hardy (George Rainsford), who hasn't been taking his Huntington's medication and is feeling the effects.

Dylan tells him to take it up with the new clinical lead, but is then cornered by Holly from HR and told that the board wants to keep him on in the role.

He's not sure if he'll take it, as it's a pretty stressful job, and he learns that the board does have a reserve candidate in mind.

But then he discovers that the reserve candidate is none other than Stevie Nash (Elinor Lawless), who will surely end Ethan's career if she ever found out about his Huntington's.

Will he take the job in order to protect his friend, or will he let Stevie have it and find another way to protect Ethan?

Or will the soap bring in a brand new character that no-one's ever heard of to take over as clinical lead?  

We'll just have to wait and see.

Casualty next airs on Saturday night (October 16) at 9.35pm on BBC One.
