Ruth (Georgia Taylor) must face her demons in this week's Casualty

Ruth finally reaches breaking point and Warren crosses the line with Kirsty, as the medical drama continues.

It's Kirsty and Warren's anniversary. Warren has bought her some bowling shoes and suggests they go bowling, just like they used to. Kirsty knows that she has to give her marriage a chance but when she calls in sick, Adam becomes worried. He tries to get in touch, which ignites Warren's rage. Nita is sent up to her room while her mum faces a vicious Warren, with devastating effects.

Ruth is highly agitated. Everywhere she looks she sees the words "help me" – in the tattoo of a patient, in a letter and in a voiceless plea from young Katy, who has been brought in by Dixie and Jeff. She takes Katy to the on-call room to be operated on, convinced that a tumour is causing Katy to hear voices. How does she know? Because Ruth can hear the voices, too...

Jordan is in the middle of a prestigious surgical procedure when Zoe arrives to beg him to come back to the ED to talk Ruth round. Can Jordan get to Ruth before she opens up Katy's skull?

It's time for Ruth to face her demons...

Ruth is played by Georgia Taylor, Warren by Stephen Lord, Kirsty by Lucy Gaskell, Adam by Tristan Gemmill, Katy by Eleanor Wyld, Dixie by Jane Hazlegrove, Jeff by Matt Bardock, Jordan by Michael French and Zoe by Sunetra Sarker.

The Killing Ep 1/20

New series
Saturday 22 January
9.00-10.00pm BBC FOUR (Schedule addition 12 January)

The Killing is the latest foreign language series to première in the UK on BBC Four, following the huge success of the Swedish Wallander. Nominated for an International Emmy for Best Drama, Denmark's hit TV series is a tense and absorbing whodunit, deftly uncovering some of the evils gnawing at contemporary society.

The 20 episodes play out over 20 days during a bleak Copenhagen November. Inspector Sarah Lund reports for her last day at work and learns that a teenage girl is missing. When her body is found in a car with links to a mayoral candidate's office, the case that gripped Danish TV viewers begins.

About to leave her post as the head of investigations at the Copenhagen homicide department as she is moving to Sweden, Sarah is in the midst of saying her goodbyes when she gets a disturbing dispatch which forces her to rethink her plans: a 19-year-old girl, Nanna Birk Larsen, is missing and her belongings have been discovered in a field.

A top Copenhagen politician, Troels, is in the middle of a promising election campaign when he is suddenly forced to make a change of plans. Meanwhile, in Vesterbro, Theis and Pernille learn that their daughter is missing.

In the first instalment of this 20-part thriller, these unsuspecting characters are drawn together by a series of simultaneous events that will change their lives for ever.

Inspector Sarah Lund is played by Sofie Gråbøl, Troels by Lars Mikkelsen, Theis by Bjarne Henriksen, Pernille by Ann Eleonora Jørgensen, Jan by Søren Malling and Rie by Marie Askehave. The cast also features Farshad Kholghi, Troels II Munk, Bent Mejding, Michael Moritzen, Nicolaj Kopernikus, Laura Drasbæk, Solbjørg Højfeldt, Julie Ølgaard, Laura Christensen, Cyron Melville, Casper Steffensen, Eske Forsting Hansen, Johan Gry, Linda Laursen, Peter Gilsfort, Ahmed H Temsamani, Klaus Messerschmidt Hjuler, Kasper Leth Hansen and Jonas Leth Hansen.

The Killing was written by Søren Sveistrup, part of the winning team that produced the 2003 International Emmy Award-winning Nikolaj And Julie.

But who was driving the car at the time of the crime?
