Casualty fans were left distraught on Saturday night when Emergency Department favourite staff nurse Robyn Miller, payed by Amanda Henderson, was brutally killed off in a car accident as her character prepared to start a new life away from Holby.
The department staple had been a much loved member of the team for the best part of a decade, having originally arrived on our screens as a student nurse all the way back in 2013.
Embroiled in a number of high profile storylines including the death of her husband to a brain tumour, being kidnapped by her bipolar colleague David when he was suffering from a manic episode, and even being caught in a house fire after her home was targeted by a petrol bomb in 2017 – Robyn looked finally set to enjoy a welcome dose of peace.
The bubbly nurse was due to start a new life with her boyfriend and daughter away from the iconic emergency department, but sensationally quit early last week when she flagged the unfair and inhumane conditions the NHS was currently working with.
Rather than sticking around for her goodbye party, Robyn left the department before the end of her shift, but she was sadly involved in a car accident moments after leaving the hospital.
In scenes that unfolded on Saturday evening, fans were left on the edge of their seats as her colleagues valiantly fought to save her life, however in a brutal twist, the nurse was sadly unable to survive her injuries, and died on the operating table.
Immediately after the scenes aired, fans raced to social media to express their anguish at the loss of the popular character who had became a clear staple of the show in recent years.
“Robyn on the cusp of a new life then this happens. Jesus I'm a blubbering mess now," wrote one fan.
Another agreed, adding: “So #Casualty has broken me this evening. Robyn was a great character and her ending was not what I expected. This episode has shown what the NHS is dealing with not daily but hourly.”
A third echoed similar sentiments as they wrote: “Holy c**p. #Casualty absolutely got me in pieces tonight. Devastated that Robyn never got her happy ending in Wigan!”
“Can't watch this Robyn gone. They killed her how dare they. Wish she had a happy ending. Another Favourite been killed. Poor Charlotte without a Mum,” commented one regular viewer.
Before another added: “What heart breaking episode never cried so much can't believe Robyn died another OG gone so emotional!”
Amanda also took to Instagram to address her exit, writing: "10 years of you Robyn! It's been a pleasure xx."
