Jane Wallbank (Holby’s Series Producer) said: “TV audiences are very sophisticated now and used to more adventurous storytelling, so we do try and mix up the format as much as possible in different ways. And yes, we try to not just necessarily play an episode over one working day, for example.

“We are currently in script stage for a very special episode the BBC has asked us to do for Holocaust Memorial Day, as it will be the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz and the pre-existing family background Sacha and Essie plays into that – it’s set in the hospital, but we do play with the format to delve into history a little.”

Holocaust Memorial Day is on the 27 January 2020.
