    The se­ries was cre­ated by Je­remy Brock and Paul Unwin. Ac­cord­ing to writer Susan Wilkins, it was meant to be a re­sponse to the Mar­garet Thatcher era, and Unwin said that as young so­cial­ists, they wanted to cre­ate a "tele­vi­sion rev­o­lu­tion" that would be fem­i­nist, anti-racist, pro-NHS and anti-Con­ser­v­a­tive.


    Ca­su­alty and Holby City are both set in Holby City Hospital,in the fic­tional county of Wyvern, in the south-west of England. From the show's in­cep­tion to se­ries 26, episode 16, the city ex­te­rior was rep­re­sented by Bris­tol, in­clud­ing well-known land­marks such as the float­ing har­bour and Clifton Sus­pen­sion Bridge often vis­i­ble in out­door scenes. The City of Bris­tol Col­lege was used as the lo­ca­tion for most ex­te­rior shots of the hos­pi­tal from 1986 until 2002, when a...


    The pro­gramme has usu­ally been trans­mit­ted on Sat­ur­day nights, al­though for a pe­riod in the late 1980s and early 1990s it switched to Fri­days. The first two se­ries each con­sisted of 15 episodes; se­ries 3 ran for 10 episodes (al­though one of those episodes was post­poned fol­low­ing the death of its guest star, Roy Kin­n­ear); se­ries 4, 5 and 6 were 12, 13, and 15 episodes long re­spec­tively. The final episode of se­ries 6, which fo­cused on a plane crash, was post­poned until F...

    Ca­su­alty fol­lows the pro­fes­sional and per­sonal lives of the med­ical and an­cil­lary staff of Holby City Hos­pi­tal's emer­gency de­part­ment. It fea­tures an en­sem­ble cast of reg­u­lar char­ac­ters, and began with ten main char­ac­ters in its first se­ries. The orig­i­nal char­ac­ters are con­sul­tant Ewart Plim­mer (Bernard Gal­lagher), se­nior house of­fi­cer Baz Samuels (Julia Wat­son), charge nurse Char­lie Fair­head (Derek Thomp­son), staff nurse Clive King (George Har­ris), state en­rolled nurse Megan Roach (Brenda Fricker), stu­dent nurse Lisa "Duffy" Duf­fin (Cathy Ship­ton), para­medics San­dra Mute and An­drew Ponting (Lisa Bow­er­man and Robert Pugh), re­cep­tion­ist Susie Mercier (Deb­bie Roza) and porter Kuba Trzcin­ski(Christo­pher Rozy­cki). Cur­rently, the reg­u­lar cast con­sists of: con­sul­tants Ethan Hardy (George Rains­ford) and Dylan Keogh (William Beck); con­sul­tant in pe­di­atric emer­gency med­i­cine Will Noble (Jack Nolan); spe­cialty reg­is­trar...

    1986–1989, 2015

    The orig­i­nal title se­quence fea­tured a speed­ing am­bu­lance with flash­ing lights ar­riv­ing at ca­su­alty with a po­lice es­cort. A CGI heart mon­i­tor was shown over the ti­tles. The 49 sec­ond se­quence shows the pa­tient's point of view and their jour­ney through the de­part­ment into resus. The heart­beat turned into elec­tric arcs, pos­si­bly as a re­sult of a de­fib­ril­la­tor being used as the bed moves around the hos­pi­tal. The theme is used again in sec­ond episode of se­ries...


    Se­ries 4, in 1989, launched with a new title se­quence, open­ing with an am­bu­lance trav­el­ling in day­time. Dif­fer­ent ac­tiv­i­ties are then shown, in­clud­ing the am­bu­lance clin­i­cians, hos­pi­tal equip­ment, a pa­tient being treated and a blood pres­sure gauge, all sep­a­rated by flashes of blue light. The next part of the se­quence fea­tures new cam­era shots of the pa­tient's jour­ney into resus.


    Se­ries 7 from 1992 to 1993 saw a se­quence re­turn­ing to the orig­i­nal style, with the am­bu­lance com­ing over the hill and a new heart­beat line mov­ing across the bot­tom of the screen. As the am­bu­lance ar­rives, the staff come out of the de­part­ment to move the pa­tient to resus.

    The first three se­ries of Ca­su­alty were re­leased on DVD (Re­gion 2, UK) by 2 En­ter­tain/Cin­ema Club. The third was re­leased to co­in­cide with the show's 20th an­niver­sary cel­e­bra­tions. In Aus­tralia the first se­ries was re­leased by Um­brella En­ter­tain­ment. There are no fu­ture DVD re­leases planned at pre­sent for the UK or Aus­tralia.

    The se­ries is aired in Ire­land on RTÉ Oneairs Mon­day at 8.05am and Tues­day to Fri­day at 7.50am. Amer­i­can view­ers can watch the se­ries on Brit­box, a sub­scrip­tion ser­vice U.S. stream­ing ser­vice.

    Holby City

    Holby City began on 12 Jan­u­ary 1999 as a spin-off from Ca­su­alty and is named after the fic­tional Holby City Hos­pi­tal in which both se­ries are set. The show fol­lows the lives and ca­reers of staff and pa­tients on the sur­gi­cal wards of the hos­pi­tal, and deals with a range of clin­i­cal and eth­i­cal is­sues. Sim­i­larly to Ca­su­alty, the reg­u­lar char­ac­ters are all sur­geons, nurses and other med­ical and an­cil­lary staff, with pa­tients played by guest ac­tors, in­clud­ing f...

    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, fea­tur­ing a num­ber of char­ac­ters from each of the two casts. Mervyn Wat­son, for­mer ex­ec­u­tive pro­ducer of Ca­su­alty, has com­mented on the ori­gins of the idea to fully cross the two shows over for the first time: "I think the idea came from some­body in the com­edy de­par...
