Casualty: Fellowship or fiancéeship?

(Series 33, ep. 20 by Rebecca Wojciechowski 19.1.19) My full review of this episode can be found over at Metro, but before you go I have a couple of things to add.

– I found myself pondering, not for the first time and probably not for the last, exactly where Holby is supposed to be these days. How far from Manchester is it? Would a long distance relationship between Holby-based Ethan and Manchester-based Alicia have been so difficult? I suppose when you factor in the long shifts etc, it might have been.

– And what did the fine hospitals of Manchester make of Connie’s conviction that Ethan going there would be ‘career suicide’? Surely there’d be an opening somewhere, with a possibility of career progression, for an experienced ED doctor?

– So many questions, but the fact remains that George Rainsford and Chelsea Halfpenny did a beautiful job with this storyline, considering that until this week I was not quite certain that they were even a proper couple. The ending was suitably tear-jerking. I was just glad that Charlie wasn’t in this episode, because Charlie saying goodbye to beloved colleagues totally does me in.

  1. It was originally set in Bristol, Sue (check out Duffy’s accent in early episodes!) Then filming moved to Cardiff, but I’m guessing it’s still meant to be in Bristol.

    • I know, and the rest of the hospital is in Hertfordshire (Holby filmed at BBC Elstree), but I was wondering where it’s meant to be as a fictional town. In Holby they get to London fairly quickly but also get to Wales in no time at all (when Sacha and Essie went there).

      Didn’t Charlie also have a Bristol accent in the early episodes?
