Trivia

Before the first series was shown, it was described as being a "northern Hospital", often thought of as possibly being similar to St. James' in Leeds, but never of course confirmed. Only really from the second series onwards did references to it being in Bristol start appearing in the media. However when a new producer, Peter Norris, was brought in for Season 4, he decided to play down the association between Holby and Bristol, and so Duffy's West Country accent disappeared and fewer recognizable Bristol locations were used. Despite this, some links to Bristol have remained, even after filming moved to Cardiff in 2011: in Casualty: Death and Doughnuts (2012) a patient's phone number was shown as starting 0117, the code for Bristol, though a fictitious district code 456 was used.

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.
