2019 is set to be a major year at Holby City Hospital, as the long-running drama series will celebrate its 20th anniversary with a host of guest appearances from previous Holby classic characters and fan favourites across the anniversary year.
Sharon D. Clarke and Denis Lawson will lead the charge, as the series delves into its rich history and celebrates two decades on screen.
Holby’s year of celebrations will roll through to a special tribute to Holby City’s 1000th episode in autumn 2019, more details of which will be revealed in due course.
Piers Wenger, Controller of BBC Drama, says: “It is a fantastic achievement for Holby City to be celebrating its 20th anniversary next year. The series continues to be a much loved BBC drama, with a loyal fan-base who tune in in their millions every Tuesday, 52 weeks a year. The past 20 years has seen the series tackle and raise awareness of so many important social and medical issues, from Parkinson’s and dementia to male mental health. We’re extremely proud of the show – Happy Birthday Holby!”
