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 »
For the first time ever, the NHS has more managers than beds. Did you know that?
I've got a rather revolutionary idea. You can take it to your next Trust meeting if you like. Get the managers down on all-fours, throw blankets over them - and hey presto!

The credits for Series 12 continued to list Amanda Mealing and Hugh Quarshie even though their characters Connie Beauchamp and Ric Griffin did not appear for several months (they had been suspended pending a disciplinary hearing) while the actors took a break from the series. See more »
I watched Holby City since it came out and I have always loved it, but I found myself particularly enraptured with the series since the arrival of Connie Beauchamp, played by the sublime Amanda Mealing.
The episode where she drove in at the beginning bedecked in full scarf and sunglasses, femme fatale garb, only to crash into Will was one of my favourites.
I've heard people say her stuffs repetitive but I think it's great fun seeing her boss the boys around and dish out her scathing comments.
The storyline with Will is a joy to behold - it may just be me being insanely sad but every week I can't wait to see what she'll throw at him.
I only hope she stays for a long time.
