This exclusive Red Button episode of Casualty will provide an insight into Sam Nicholl's troubled military past in Afghanistan.

As her General Medical Council trial approaches for allegedly attacking and injuring a patient, Holby City ED's Dr Sam Nicholls discovers that someone from her past is returning - and they are going to give evidence in her trial. The new evidence could potentially spell disaster for Sam.

Sam is forced to make a tough choice when she and her helicopter medical rescue team are called to a suicide bombing in a tea house.

Will Sam make the right call? And just who is the person returning to give evidence?
