Did You Know?
From this episode (the beginning of a new season) onwards, the credits reverted to their original design (before Holby City: Maria's Christmas Carol
(2008)) so as to list *all* the cast, in order of appearance, in the closing credits. In the interim, the main cast (but not their character names) had been listed only in the opening titles, and in a fixed order which took no account of whether the character appeared in that episode. See more
