With Ward 17 closed down, the team from All Saints face big changes as they are split up and some are moved to the fast paced world of the Emergency Department, headed by Director of Emergency Frank Campion.
This is an Australian medical drama set in the fantasy All Saints Western General Hospital. It focuses on what happens in ward 17 (affectionately known as the garbage ward) and the lives of the nurses on the ward and two doctors that spend a lot of time there. In also has the paramedic team of Bron and Ben. Written by
All Saints is the best. That was decided by the Logie (Australian TV award) that it won for Best Drama, over constant favorite Blue Heelers. The combination of solid characters, good writing, moving performances and fantastic actors who all work well together makes this show the delight that it is. It's also not troubled by dealing with the tough issues, as was shown by earlier episodes where they dealt with male rape and de-tox trials. Filmed in Sydney, this show may occassionally slip into the unrealistic (as do all shows on TV) but other than that, it's fantastic.
