Template:EpisodeBoxNew30 "The Good Life" is the 981st episode of Casualty and the 21st episode of the 30th series. It was preceded by "Shame" and will be followed by "Step Right Up". The episode was directed by Jo Johnson and written by Patrick Homes. It shares its name with a series 8 episode which aired over 20 years before.
This episode will also mark the final appearance of Kathleen "Dixie" Dixon, played by Jane Hazlegrove, following almost 10 years on the show. In addition, it will feature the final appearance of guest characters Jess and Olivia Cranham, who were introduced in October 2015 and November 2015, respectively.
The day of Dixie's disciplinary hearing arrives, but things get off to a bad start when she is held up by an incident, and when Jess asks her to move to Cornwall with her and Olivia, the paramedic must decide whether to follow her head or her heart. Lily desperately hopes to re-establish her bond with Ethan by trying to convince him to stay, Connie tries to come up with a meaningful gift to make up for missing Jacob's birthday, and Robyn's appearance on the cover of Holby Pulse only serves to increase Big Mac's feeling of shame over abandoning Noel to his mystery mugger.
