Trivia

At the time of Casualty's conception, the BBC had two ideas for a hospital drama - a 'cottage hospital' idea, which was seen as the safe option, or an A&E department ('Front Line' - as Casualty was originally titled), an off-the-wall idea which posed more problems for the team. "I went for Casualty," said Jonathan Powell, BBC Head of Drama, about his decision, "because there was a feeling of life and passion and, well, I was anxious for new young people to create something. I put them [creators Jeremy Brock and Paul Unwin] with a very experienced producer, Geraint Morris, and hoped for the best." See more »

Quotes

Sean Maddox: Why does it feel like I'm having an affair with my own girlfriend?
Tina Seabrook: Don't knock it, some might say you've got the best of both worlds.

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.
