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.

In 2003, popular character Sandy Harper was intended to take centre stage in a storyline involving murderous nurse "Killer" Kelly Yorke (Rachel Leskovac). However, actress Laura Sadler was killed in an accident at her boyfriends home in June 2003, meaning that Sandy was immediately written out of the show. The part Sandy would have played in the storyline then went to Kath Fox (Jan Pearson) who became Kelly's next victim. See more »
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 have been watching Holby City since it began, although it suffers slightly from the story lines revolving too much around the staff the show does give us some intense drama when it wants to. I would recommend watching this to anyone who loves a good drama based around the setting of an hospital. Holby City also has some great characters like the wonderful newcomer Amanda Mealing who plays Connie. Here's to the future of Holby City - may it be long and prosperous and continue to flourish. I don't think Holby is as good as it once was however but it's still a top notch drama and one that the BBC should be very proud to air.
