"Cascade" was the fifteenth and final episode of Series 6 and the 80th episode of Casualty overall. It was originally scheduled to air on 20 December 1991 but was delayed by two months as its original airing date was the day before the third anniversary of the Lockerbie disaster in the Scottish borders in which 270 people had been killed.
