Last year, the BBC announced that it had made the “difficult decision” to end the program in order to “reshape BBC drama to better reflect, represent and serve every corner of the country”. .
It claims this is to help “make room for new opportunities” as part of the broadcaster’s “commitment to more programming across the UK”.
Holby City was filmed in Elstree, Hertfordshire, just outside London.
Leslie Ash, Patsy Kensit, Jane Asher, Robert Powell, Adrian Edmondson and Alex Walkinshaw are some of the stars who have appeared on the show over the years.
