Spin off from Holby City (1999) and Casualty (1986), taking place in and around Holby South police station and focusing on the police who work with the doctors and paramedics from Holby City and Casualty.
Drama series depicting the frenetic daily lives of the doctors, nurses and patients in the hectic cardiac unit of Holby City General Hospital. The unit is run by the autocratic Consultant Surgeon Anton Meyer (George Irving) assisted by arrogant sidekick Registrar Nick (Michael French) who find themselves in a continuous running battle with Consultant Muriel McKendrick ('Phyllis Logan') over beds with the rest of the staff caught in the cross-fire.

Following the death of Laura Sadler who played Sandy Harper, the scriptwriters consulted her mother, Sonja Sadler, to find the most fitting way to write out the much-loved character and actress from the series. Mrs Sadler devised the storyline in which Sandy wins the lottery and secretly leaves the hospital to make a new life for herself in Australia, leaving money for her friends. See more »
Mrs Beauchamp, I have to admit that you have the leadership skills of an eight-year-old with a Kalashnikov.

The credits for Series 12 continued to list Amanda Mealing and Hugh Quarshie even though their characters Connie Beauchamp and Ric Griffin did not appear for several months (they had been suspended pending a disciplinary hearing) while the actors took a break from the series. See more »
I watched Holby City since it came out and I have always loved it, but I found myself particularly enraptured with the series since the arrival of Connie Beauchamp, played by the sublime Amanda Mealing.
The episode where she drove in at the beginning bedecked in full scarf and sunglasses, femme fatale garb, only to crash into Will was one of my favourites.
I've heard people say her stuffs repetitive but I think it's great fun seeing her boss the boys around and dish out her scathing comments.
The storyline with Will is a joy to behold - it may just be me being insanely sad but every week I can't wait to see what she'll throw at him.
I only hope she stays for a long time.
