Trivia

The first season of Casualty attracted a lot of political controversy and government condemnation because it "dared" to be critical of hospital conditions and the chronic under-funding of the National Health Service. Also the Royal College of Nursing did not like the way that some of the nurses were portrayed. Despite these initial concerns, a second season of episodes was made, partly because the scripts had already been paid for, though initially it was thought that no more would be made after that. Now, twenty years later, Casualty has become a national institution and is the longest-running BBC drama programme and the second-longest-running medical drama in the world behind America's General Hospital (1963).

User Reviews

the lead-in scenes always worried me!!
2 March 2004 | by james-m-1See all my reviews

Fantastic series - I was always a great fan but the early part of each show, where they set up each of the story lines, used to worry me somewhat! As you can imagine, the show was centered around Holby City Hospital and the scenes were being set so you KNEW that the 'normal' people going about their 'normal' lives in 'normal' situations were about to experience something fairy dreadful to warrant their inclusion in the show and their appearance in the A&E (UK) or the ER (US) with any manner of tubes and machines beeping and blipping their lives away. Consistently superb storylines and great acting (don't you love 'Charlie!) made this compulsive viewing.
