Three old men from Yorkshire who have never grown up face the trials of their fellow town citizens and everyday life and stay young by reminiscing about the days of their youth and attempting feats not common to the elderly.
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 »
[Will and Mubbs are carrying out an operation that Connie has specifically ordered them not to carry out]
We need to get through this as quickly as possible - every minute on the table is putting an extra strain on her heart.
It's not something I can rush. If I deliver too much fluid or too quickly it may cause the placenta to detach.
It's Connie detaching my testicles that I'm concerned about.

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 »
This show came before Grey's Anatomy and will likely be on after that show ends. I only saw one episode last night but it's typical British soap fare. There is a Jamaican doctor who is taking care of orphaned baby Leeann until they locate her father. She suspects that he is a drug addict because of the physical symptoms and questions the authority. There are other members in the cast but the show doesn't exhibit anything but average writing, above average acting, and above average sets. I never saw Casualty so I can't tell the difference or the similarities. It was on after EastEnders so I watched it and it was watchable in my opinion but I wouldn't say excellent because I think the show needs to do more work in getting strong characters who will be memorable and writing that creates a sensation. Until then, Holby City will be the sister show of Casualty and while it follows EastEnders, it might get an audience leftover to keep it going. I think the show is good and worth watching.
