Trivia

Until production of Casualty moved from Bristol to Cardiff in 2011, a common filming location for high-speed car accidents was the "Road to Nowhere" in Yate, just north of Bristol. This is a short length of dual-carriageway road between Rodford Way and Badminton Road, part of a planned bypass around Yate, which was started in the 1970s but was never completed. Consequently it is unused by traffic and is therefore safe for dangerous stunts, but looks like a proper road. See more »

Quotes

Cynthia 'Cyd' Pyke: [referring to a woman who has been bothering the men in the department all day] She's probably just lonely.
Greg Fallon: Or she needs her chimney swept

the lead-in scenes always worried me!!
2 March 2004 | by (Orange, Massachusetts (expat London, UK)) – See all my reviews

Fantastic series - I was always a great fan but the early part of each show, where they set up each of the story lines, used to worry me somewhat! As you can imagine, the show was centered around Holby City Hospital and the scenes were being set so you KNEW that the 'normal' people going about their 'normal' lives in 'normal' situations were about to experience something fairy dreadful to warrant their inclusion in the show and their appearance in the A&E (UK) or the ER (US) with any manner of tubes and machines beeping and blipping their lives away. Consistently superb storylines and great acting (don't you love 'Charlie!) made this compulsive viewing.
