This review is from: Casualty 1900s [DVD] (DVD)
Casualty 1900s is a brilliant series that takes place in the London hospital in the early 20th century, when medical science was still developing. The storylines are based on real events recorded in diaries, notebooks and police reports. This is a period drama with a difference, as it focuses on the lives of the poor, immigrants, doctors, nurses and police. There is plenty of action, drama, suspense, humour and brilliant acting that make it addictive viewing. You can't help but care about the characters involved, the nurses and doctors who literally dedicate their lives to helping others. Although I love programmes like Cranford and Lark Rise, Casualty 1900s is unique because it focuses on city life, and is an original drama, and you learn a lot about this fascinating time in history just by watching each episode. This DVD is brilliant because it combines the latest series, Casualty 1909 with the earlier series, Casualty 1907 and the one-off special Casualty 1906. Definately recommended.
