The programme and its history

Fictional location

Holby City began on 12 January 1999 as a spin-off from the long-running BBC medical drama Casualty and is named after the fictional Holby City Hospital in which both series are set. Holby bears close resemblance to Bristol, and in effect would replace Bristol on the UK map. Holby is set in the fictional county of Wyvern, in the south-west of England, not far from the Welsh border.

About the show

The show follows the lives and careers of staff and patients at the hospital and deals with a range of clinical and ethical issues. The regular characters are all staff, and patients are played by guest actors (which have included some famous names such as Eric Sykes, Phill Jupitus, Michael Jayston, Michele Dotrice and Ronni Ancona). In more recent years, patients have been part of the cast for a number of episodes rather than just for one episode – such as Pete Golding who had a pig's kidney illegally transplanted into him by Abra Durant, and Jade McGuire who is a teenage prostitute befriended by Sam Strachan.

History and broadcast

Holby City was originally commissioned as a series to be shown as part of the BBC's winter line-up. The first series ran for nine episodes, and due to this success the show was recommissioned for a second series with sixteen episodes. Following further success in the ratings, producers decided to make thirty episodes for the third series. As of the start of the fourth series (9 October 2001) the programme is broadcast all year round, with fifty-two episodes per series, on Tuesday nights at 8.00pm on BBC1. Originally, Holby City was broadcast on Thursday nights in the 8.00pm slot, until a permanent switch to Tuesdays occurred from half way through the third series in 2001. On 1 May 2007, the show was moved to its original slot of 8pm on Thursdays to make way for Holby Blue, but reverted to its Tuesday slot on 3 July 2007 once the eight-part Holby Blue had finished.

Upon its return, the show was broadcast with revamped opening titles, featuring clips of various cast members interspersed with the original credits, the first variation of the title sequence since the show began. The show also returned with a new texture, similar to that used in Holby Blue and American medical drama, ER. Scenes were shot using quicker paces, new angles and creative focusing giving the programme a more dramatic feel.

Although the start of Holby City allowed us to see life upstairs in the hospital, away from the busy Emergency Department of Casualty, Darwin Ward and some members of the original Holby City cast actually made their appearance in 1998 in episodes of Casualty. Staff members from Holby City who appeared in Casualty prior to the launch of Holby City were Nick Jordan and Julie Fitzjohn – with Nick attending to a patient in the Emergency Department and Charlie Fairhead from Casualty arguing with Julie on Darwin Ward over a patients treatment. In the early series of Holby City, regular appearances were made from characters from sister-show Casualty and vice versa. However, as both shows are filmed so far away from each other, and both having busy filming schedules due to year-round production, the two tend to stay separate.

Filming of the show

Holby City is filmed by and for the BBC at Elstree Studios in Hertfordshire. The building which is used for the hospital is called "Neptune House". This building contains the sets for the show, and is also the production offices for a number of BBC shows, including EastEnders. Each episode of Holby City is filmed approximately 3 months in advance of airing on BBC One - and whilst one episode is being filmed, the cast are also filming the next episode at the same time. This results in the completion of two episodes in two weeks. During interviews, cast members have revealed that they spend 12 hours a day, 5 days a week filming Holby City. The British Broadcasting Corporation, which is usually known as the BBC, is the largest broadcasting corporation in the world in terms of audience numbers, employing 26,000 staff in the United Kingdom alone and with a budget of more than GB£4 billion. ... Historically, the name Elstree Studios refers to any of several film studios that were based in the town of Elstree and Borehamwood in Hertfordshire, England. ... For the similarly named county in the West Midlands region, see Herefordshire. ... The British Broadcasting Corporation, which is usually known as the BBC, is the largest broadcasting corporation in the world in terms of audience numbers, employing 26,000 staff in the United Kingdom alone and with a budget of more than GB£4 billion. ... EastEnders is a popular BBC television soap opera, first broadcast in the United Kingdom on BBC1 on 19 February 1985[4] and continuing to date. ... BBC One is the primary television channel of the BBC, and the first in the United Kingdom. ...


When Holby City was relatively new back in 1999 and 2000, it was filmed many months in advance, and Series 2 was completed before it began airing. During the first episode of Series 2, which was broadcast on 25 November 1999, a defibrillator that Kirstie Collins uses displays the date as 07 May 1999, the day of filming.


Holby City is shot using the Single-camera setup, resulting in filming taking substantially longer than most other shows. When characters interact with each other, for example a conversation between two characters, the producers film one person speaking - i.e. scenes 1, 3, 5, and 7. The camera is then pointed to the other character and then scenes 2, 4, 6, and 8 are filmed. In the editing process the scenes are then merged to look as though the characters are having a conversation. This method is time consuming, expensive and results in numerous mistakes - a recent example from 8x42 is in a conversation between a patient's relative and Kyla Tyson, the relative's hair is in a plait down her back in scenes 1, 3, 5 and 7 - but in scenes 2, 4, 6, and 8 when the camera is facing Kyla, her plait is down the front of her shoulder onto her stomach. The single-camera setup (aka, single-camera mode of production) is a method of shooting films and television programs. ...


The Holby City building can often be seen in the distance during episodes of EastEnders, as both shows are filmed at the same studio, although the latter is set in London.

Children in need appeal

To help raise money for Children in Need in the autumn of 2006, some of the cast members took part in a comical music video of Madonna's "Hung Up" song, which was broadcast on the evening of the appeal РFriday 17 November 2006 on BBC One. The video featured a team of surgeons who were carrying out an operation and depicted the time of surgery going by slowly. During the operation, the characters decided they would mess about, and went off around the hospital singing and dancing to the popular song. Darwin ward was covered in Disco lights and colourful decorations. The characters which featured were Elliot Hope, Diane Lloyd, Matt Parker, Maddy Young, Mark Williams, Reg Lund, Kyla Tyson, Daniel Clifford, Maria Kendall and Dean West. Characters Maddy Young, Daniel Clifford and Maria Kendall had not arrived on the actual show itself at this time. Maria and Daniel both appeared from 28 November 2006 and Maddy Young joined the show from 16 January 2007.

Spin-off from Holby City

In spring 2006, the BBC announced that a spin-off drama from the show, to be named HolbyBlue, was in early stages of production. The series focuses on the police service of South Holby and airs on BBC One on Tuesday nights, with Holby City switching back to its former Thursday night slot at 8.00pm for eight weeks until HolbyBlue has come to an end. Considering that HolbyBlue is in fact a spin-off from Holby City, strangely there have been no cross-overs with main characters from either show, however Charlie from Casualty did appear in the first episode of the police drama. More subtle links have occurred in the form of police officers wearing Wyvern Constabulary uniforms (the police station where HolbyBlue is based) appearing at times when scenes require in both Holby City and Casualty. // HolbyBlue (styled Holby/Blue) is a British television drama series which premiered on BBC One on 8 May 2007. ...

Casualty@Holby City

Reflecting Holby City's origins as a spin-off from Casualty and the closely-related premises of the two programmes, the BBC has screened occasional crossover mini-dramas entitled Casualty@Holby City and featuring a number of characters from each of the two casts. There have been four stories involving both casts:

Date Reason for crossover
December 2004 A Christmas special featuring a fuel tanker lorry crashing into the Accident & Emergency department of Holby City Hospital. Casualty character Jim Brodie died rescuing his colleagues from the burning hospital building.
August 2005 As part of the BBC's DoNation season, raising the profile of organ donation issues, an interactive mini-series was screened and viewers voted for one of two patients to receive an organ donation in the show. The plot was designed to raise awareness of the scarcity of organs and encourage viewers to consider joining the NHS Donor Register.
October 2005 A week-long Hallowe'en crossover focusing on issues around youth violence, featuring an ambulance hijack and an assault on character Comfort Newton by pupils at a failing secondary school.
December 2005 A further crossover was screened during the BBC's 2005 Christmas programming, which saw the return of popular former character Mr Nick Jordan (played by Michael French), and a group of staff involved in a road collision.
