Overview

Cast changes and guest appearances

On 16 December 2020, a trailer was released promoting the upcoming series which revealed that Bobby Lockwood would be joining the cast as paramedic Leon Cook. A press release was subsequently issued regarding Lockwood's casting.[1] In addition to Lockwood's arrival, the trailer also confirmed the returns of Emily Carey and Adele James as Grace Beauchamp-Strachan and Christina "Tina" Mollett respectively.[2] The next day, it was announced that, following "secret" talks with the programme's bosses, Michael Stevenson had reprised his role as Iain Dean.[3]

In an interview with TV Times, Amanda Mealing confirmed a "much-loved" series regular would be killed off in the series opener. She stated that it would take some time for everyone to accept that they are gone "because they were always there, they were a permanent fixture".[4]
