“Turgid, depressing and boring”

Written on: 10/01/2020 by qualitystreet01 (1 review written)

I caught an episode of Holby City Classic the other day, how different it is compared with current programme. The classic was dynamic, stuffed with interesting storylines and sympathetic human characters. This programme lately has become so navel gazing, it takes 10 secs for each character to say one thing, lots of staring into space, dull characters (Chloe - her mother) constantly banging on about issues - mental health, state of NHS etc. Writing and direction all wrong… Read Full Review

“Have the Holby City writers gone Mad?”

Written on: 05/01/2018

I have been an avid Holby City viewer for many years and I have to say that I am at the stage of turning off the TV altogether or watching something more entertaining like the test card (remember that?). Having systematically got rid off some of the regular characters in recent weeks, they seriously wound two of the best characters and some bright spark thought it would be a good wheeze to put Ric on remand for punching someone in the face - really? The current story lines are absolute pants… Read Full Review

“Latest storyline is rubbish”

Written on: 28/05/2015 by rubikcube (1 review written)

I am a retired registered nurse with many years experience and have watched and enjoyed watching Holby City for many years. Some story lines do not bear any resemblance to reality but hey ho ! artistic licence! However, the latest storyline with Adele Effanga, who I believe is playing the part of HCA is beyond the pale, She never seems to be doing any work! Spends most of her time chatting to senior members of staff, eating or pursuing her love life.In my day on the wards and I'm sure it is… Read Full Review

“I am an ex-qualified nurse and I have been an avid...”

Written on: 17/02/2011

I am an ex-qualified nurse and I have been an avid viewer of Holby City for many years, but my opinion of this medical drama has dropped considerably since Christmas 2010.
Four of the main cast members have left, I particularly miss the characters of Connie Beauchamp and Joseph Byre, and the show now just seems to be used by the BBC as an example of ethnic diversity.
The storylines are less interesting as well. It is such a shame that it is slipping down the drain.
I loathe all the saop… Read Full Review

I agree with this comment. Holby used to be so good, and is so poor now. What has happened to Elliot? where has he gone.

Written on: 30/01/2019

I totally agree I used to watch this show avidly,the writing and characters are very poor.The writers need to watch an old 10 years old episode of Greys Anatomy to see how a brilliant award winning medical drama is written and continues to be written brilliantly and actually looks something like a real hospital.

Written on: 08/02/2011

What a shame the writers of tonights episode didn't do enough research into Polands Syndrome and spoilt what could have been a great story line. - Well done to them for broaching the subject - but if raising awareness of such a little known and yet hugely impacting condition was what they were about - then they failed miserably. - Why complicate it with other conditions and then a teenage pregnancy? Life with Polands is a struggle - and complications of reconstruction all too real without… Read Full Review

Exaggerated City

Is Holby City stereotyping hospital behaviour?

Holby City is a hospital based drama about the lives of the workers in the hospital. It involves love affairs, marriages, divorces, births, deaths, friendships and murders. The popular TV soap has been on air for 11 years and has generated views of over 5.44 million. But is Holby City changing the views on the real hospitals or is it simply another dramatized TV programme.
Holby… Read Full Review

No good points really....I think Holby City is rubbish. I wouldn't recommend it as it is dull and boring and never has any decent storylines. Casualty is a lot better. A waste of a television slot in my opinion… Read Full Review

Some clangers: Tom Chambers shaved his head, but they waited for a five-o-clock shadow before filming. Maria was adopted at the age of three in the website; three months in the dialogue. Maria's first e-mail and her reply imply she has met Aaron, subsequent episodes act as if they only know each other by e-mail; she doesn't recognise him in person… Read Full Review

Holby City is a good drama series, we're always hanging on for the next episode, even if it's "No, silly girl, can't they get her out of this mess?". Medical practice looks authentic. Plenty of medical emergencies squeezed in between the love life… Read Full Review
