Casualty spoilers follow.
Casualty will air a special episode next week, which follows a day in the life of the paramedics.
The episode comes after this weekend's (October 16) episode was pulled from schedules last minute "in light of recent events" in the news, after MP Sir David Amess was fatally stabbed during a constituency meeting on Friday.
The new scenes will follow Jan, Iain, Teddy and newcomer Sah as they contend with the realities of what it means to be on the front lines.
Here's a collection of the six biggest moments to watch out for:
1. Sah and Iain get a shock
The shift gets off to a bad start when Iain accidentally misgenders Sah after they are partnered together.
Both Iain and Sah are then both left shaken when they find a woman who has been dead for months on their first shout out.
Iain encourages Sah to talk about the distressing turn of events but they dismiss it. They are then sent out to an elderly man, who has been waiting two hours for help after falling out of bed.
2. Sah is left frustrated
To Sah's frustration, the control diverts them to a more urgent call instead – leaving the man in pain.
When they bring the patient into the ED, it quickly becomes apparent that the woman had grossly misrepresented the urgency of the situation, prompting Sah to lose their temper.
Sah and Iain are eventually sent out to the elderly man from the original call, but upon arrival, realise that he has attempted suicide.
3. Iain's past is revisited
With the experience a little too close to home to Iain, Sah awkwardly tries to offer him some emotional support.
Iain then opens up to Sah about his past suicide attempt and offers support to Sah as well.
Sah insists they are okay to continue, but it's clear they are struggling too. They are then left more anxious when they realise that the patient's chances of survival are being minimised by the long wait time.
Dylan informs the paramedics that the patient they bought in, who had attempted suicide, is stable but both patients have heart problems and there's only one Cath Lab available at the current moment in time.
4. Sah opens up to Iain
Sah is then left horrified when Dylan has to make a call and chooses the younger patient as a priority.
Because of this, Sah finally opens up to Iain and admits they are struggling with the grim realities of the job.
Iain is supportive and reassuring, and Sah begins to accept that it can't be easy for Dylan to make these decisions, either.
5. Teddy is determined to prove himself
At his first call out, Teddy is determined to prove himself to Jan, who in return seems resolute in being unimpressed.
When Teddy risks his safety by chasing after a thieving patient, Jan is furious with him and berates his reckless behaviour.
6. Teddy faces an alarming situation
Teddy and Jan are are then called out to Elsie, a woman with Aspergers Syndrome who is living alone in a large house in the country. Elsie insists on serving Jan and Teddy a cup of tea and brownies but it becomes apparent that her injury is completely fabricated.
On the way to the ambulance, Teddy notices something strange and decides to investigate. This leads him to a barn, where he finds a cannabis farm.
Before he can explore further, Teddy is knocked unconscious by Elsie’s 'friend' Ben, who then throws him into the boot of the car.
7. Jan fears for Teddy
With Teddy AWOL, Jan becomes suspicious about what they have really been called out for.
Just as Jan starts to realise what's happening, the situation is intensified when she's threatened by villainous Ben – who Elsie has been trying to escape from.
Terrified for Teddy, Jan is forced to admit that he is not just a colleague, he is her nephew. Ben relents slightly at that and gestures to the boot of the car, but refuses to let her help Teddy – who is still unconscious. Will he be okay?
Casualty airs these scenes on Saturday, October 23 at 9.30pm on BBC One.
