Continues where series 1 finishes, some of the original staff are missing but Dr Woods, Mags, Diane and Student Nurse Gary are back (Gary's nursing skills seem to have improved!).
Keely is no longer the patient, but makes a discovery, which tests her patience in the relationship she is still having with ex-patient Billy. Dawn is terrified of an operation to remove her spleen, how will the patients and staff cope when things do not go to plan!
It's hard to think that it is 20 years since I use to come home from school, tape this (on those things we had called video recorders) so I could continually re-watch it, I surprised myself by actually remembering some of the lines word for word in this series! I was 12 when this was screen on TV! It is classic children's TV, filmed in and around my local Bolton Hospital, (the opening picture of the front of the hospital has in fact just been knocked down to make way for a new car park!).
I had to laugh at some of the conditions being treated on the ward, these days you would be lucky to get an overnight bed for tonsillitis let alone a three / four week stay for something like psoriasis (Lisa). Still it is good to reminisce about the old days and this was one of my favourite TV shows when I was a kid. However I do note the copying of the original to DVD is not perfect, but then I suppose it is difficult to salvage things from the pre digital age.
This series deals with many serious issues including gang warfare, stabbings, suicide, death, and teen pregnancy!
