Storyline

Casualty 1906 is an innovative hospital drama that plunges the viewer into the Receiving Room (today's A&E) of the London hospital deep in the teeming East End. The drama is shot with the pace and action of its modern day counterpart and namesake, Casualty, but every case and character is true. Focusing on cases, characters and events taken from the actual hospital records, nurse's Ward Diaries and intimate memoirs, 'Casualty 1906' is an unbroken experience of life with pioneering doctors and nurses a hundred years ago among the desperately poor.

Disgusting
1 January 2015 | by See all my reviews

This series is also know as London Hospital.

Not for the squeamish or those with an aversion to blood.

Being a medical programme, they show surgery and when they do very little is left to the imagination, especially blood. The most disgusting thing I find about the show is its historical accuracy, when they perform a procedure they don't wear gloves and perform most of the procedures right in the exam room. They will be in the middle of a procedure and stop to touch completely unsanitary things and then resume their life or death job. There is a theatre, and they do wear gloves and proper dress, except masks, for the major surgeries.

Dr. Wilson is a radiologist and at the time they had no idea the consequences of prolonged exposure to unchecked X-Rays. His hands are badly burned from all the exposure and is missing several fingers. All the fingers on one hand by the end of the first episode. The events, stories and characters are based on real people and events that happened and have been recorded.

I find it fascinating. The early history of one of London's greatest hospitals. And perfect for those who enjoy real history, medical dramas, a little romance all in the East End revolving around those afflicted by poverty.

And it makes me all the more aware and appreciative of all the advances we have and the long gevity we have. In addition to the quality of life we can provide to those with disabilities.

The acting is good, sincere and believable. I have so far only watched the first episode, but I can assume that it gets better and as the characters develop I'm sure it improves even more.
