Casualty Sin City: the soft-boiled Frank Miller homage no one expected

Noir comes to Holby as the veteran hospital drama tries its hand at something a little out of the ordinary. But can such tricksy pastiches revive a flagging patient?

Casualty will be 30 next year. How much longer the Saturday-night medical soap can soldier on must be a question asked regularly in top-level BBC pow-wows: so is its current yen for special, spoof and spin-off episodes a celebratory show of strength or a cry for help?

This week’s edition is entitled Holby Sin City – written in an opening caption using a crimson font mimicking the Sin City graphic novels and 2005 film.
