"The Dying Game" is the 907th episode of Casualty and the 40th episode of the 28th series. It was preceded by "To Yourself Be True" and followed by "Unhinged". This episode was directed by Julie Edwards and written by Steve Bailie.
Rita finds herself in a quandary when a fire in a care home for the elderly leaves her with access to a terminal patient whose ongoing treatment raises a number of concerns - ones that may not be popular if she opts to raise them with the regular medical staff. Lily treats a man with toothache, but persuading him to acknowledge the real cause of his pain proves to be a difficult task. Elsewhere, Connie questions Zoe's competence during a meeting with CEO Guy Self, and Lofty returns to the Emergency Department.
