There were tears and hugs between the cast and crew of Holby City on their final day on set.
Devoted fans of the show were absolutely devastated last year when it was announced that the BBC hospital drama would end after 23 years.
And on Tuesday night, viewers were in tears as they watched the show’s final episode, which saw the show’s most iconic character Jac Naylor tragically die after surgery.
However, it seems that the filming of these scenes was as emotional as the scenes themselves.
Sharing behind-the-scenes clips, actor Bob Barrett – who plays Sascha Levy – can be heard saying: “Emotional scenes are always challenging, but these scenes were especially poignant when filming, especially as they relate to the death of a character in the series in the final episode.
“And it’s hard to say goodbye to each set, one by one.”
Actors David Ames (Dominic Copeland) and Dawn Steele (Ange Godard) were later seen in the full PPE as they revealed that they had filmed their final scenes together.
“It was our last gig and surgery as Ange Godard and Dominic Copeland as Holby City General,” David said.
Looking sad, Dawn said, “Oh no! Feeling so sad…”
The pair hugged and David continued: “It was emotional. There were so many last moments, so many ‘last time did this, last time did it’.”
They then shared clipboard snapshots, one of which had “goodbye Keller” written on it.
One director was seen calling out to the cast and crew as he said, “It was the last scene in the AAU ward, ladies and gentlemen, so, I don’t know…”
When all clammed up, Bob continued: “Although our final day was scheduled with as many actors as possible so we could complete it together, some filmed the final scenes of the movie. And we marked each one with a round of applause and a few tears.”
Actress Rosie Marcel, who plays Jac, was seen wiping away tears.
“It’s hard to put into words how much Holby means to us, but we tried our best,” Bob said, as the cast described the experience as “unforgettable.” and their “magic” on set.
Fans have commented, voicing their devastation over the show’s ending.
One person tweeted: “I’ll have to watch it again. I still don’t really feel like it’s #HolbyCityFinale. I feel sad and a bit numb. Like when you get bad news but don’t really process it. “
While another commented: “Oh, I’m totally lost. The last episode was absolutely perfect. I cried non-stop, it’s truly a loss. And now it’s gone.”
