Spin off
28 April 2003 | by (Thirsk, North Yorkshire) – See all my reviews

The Royal is a spin off from the TV series Heartbeat. It is based in a hospital in Whitby (The 'big town') and follows the goings on of the staff, nurses doctors and porters.

It features a number of members of the Heartbeat series making cameo appearances. Claude Greengrass is a regular.

Ian Carmichael appears as the secretary .. he must be 99!

Gentle spin off... it won't last !
