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.

Holby City is filmed in what used to be a BBC office at Elstree Studios: Top of the Pops staff were moved out and hospital wards were brought in. See more »
[to Matt who has just terrified a patient by using lots of incomprehensible medical terms when she asked "What's wrong with me"]
Next time you go anywhere near a reference book, look up the term "layman".

Beginning with episode (#11.10)} the credits were redesigned so the actors who played the main characters were listed (though without their character names) before the episode, and the actors and character names for the minor or guest characters were listed at the end. The opening credits were identical for every episode and included actors even if they did not appear in that episode. See more »
'Holby City' has to be one of the most boring TV 'dramas' I have ever had the misfortune of watching. The plots are insipid, tedious, and cliched beyond belief. Does it possibly exist as some sort of retirement home for washed-up soap-opera actors ? Save yourself the pain and go and read a good book.
