"The Dying of the Light" is the 191st episode of Casualty and the 15th episode of the 11th series.


Tom, a 70-year-old man who suffered a stroke some time ago and is now suffering from dementia, is taken to a care home by his son David. There, he becomes aggressive and struggles with staff before falling down stairs. He is taken into hospital with a broken ankle but suffers another stroke and dies in Resus. Jude meets with a pregnant woman, Shaheera, who has had six miscarriages and is now suffering from blurred vision. She admits she once had an abortion but Jack and Richard discover she has toxoplasmosis, unrelated to the abortion, and the baby is fine. Flamboyant music hall director Ronnie is trying to put on a Christmas pageant with help from his reluctant star man Max, who is taken with new soprano Eleanor. The venue has failed to advertise the pageant so no-one turns up, and Max calls an ambulance when Eleanor suffers from a sore throat. Eleanor has an epiglotic abscess: The surgery is simple put it may affect her singing voice. Ronnie admits to Max that he loves him and Max learns Eleanor has a boyfriend. Matt hires Max and Ronnie as cabaret for the staff's James Bond-themed Christmas party. Kate is upset when a song reminds her of Trevor and Jack takes her home. Jude tells Matt of her pregnancy; after initially being shocked, he tells her he will stand by her and cares about her.
