Casualty and Holby City are joining forces once again for a special episode tackling youth violence.
In a specially commissioned storyline specially called Casualty@Holby City viewers will see a routine A&E demonstration in a tough inner city school turn nasty when a pupil and a teacher come to blows over a shared girlfriend.
The two hit shows joined together last month for a joint venture to promote organ donation with the DoNation season. The joint episode will air in the week beginning October 24, the same week the Corporation launches its adaptation of Dickens’ classic Bleak House starring Gillian Anderson and Charles Dance. EastEnders is also set to receive a boost with the Mitchell brothers returning to screens.
BBC1 controller Peter Fincham said: “We have got three very different dramas playing this week that emphasise the breadth and depth of what we have to offer. Changing the scheduling of established favourites and the format for presenting period drama is exactly what I want BBC1 to be doing, challenging our audiences with top quality programming.”
