Product Description

Product Description

The Royal Series 2 follows on directly from the cliff-hanger ending of the first series. The doctors and nurses face one of the biggest trials of their professional careers as they try to save the lives of those aboard the coach, while some have their own personal worries to face. Medical ethics confront many of the staff later in the series, and the burgeoning love affair between Dr David Cheriton and Staff Nurse Meryl Taylor hots up--right before it hits the rocks...
 
Episode 1: All At Sea
Cheriton and Taylor take to the waves to discover a family dispute on board a fishing trawler. Ormerod finds the truth about his wife hard to bear, and Weatherill has to deal with the consequences of a one night stand. Ken finds he has bitten off more than he can chew when he offers to do a favour for his cousin's chip shop.

Episode 2: Snakes and Ladders
Cheriton falls foul of the establishment and fuel's Meryl's jealousy when he clashes with a senior doctor. Ken has designs on fleecing Harper over the decorating of the hospital. And Ormerod and Weatherill find they are beginning to get closer.

Episode 3: Thicker Than Water
Sister Brigid has a crisis of faith over a mother whose life is at risk. Family secrets are blown into the open when a hunting expedition ends in tragedy. Ken ties himself in knots as he and Harper clash over the hospital laundry.

Episode 4: Wishing And Hoping
An epidemic is feared when a child contracts whooping cough. Mr. Rose takes matters into his own hands - and feet. Middleditch's act of kindness spells trouble for Ormerod and Weatherill. And there's trouble for Cheriton when he decides to whisk Meryl away for the weekend.

Episode 5: One Of Those Days
Harper gets a shock after Ken discovers his plans. Mr. Rose takes drastic action on a patient with a brain haemorrhage. And Sister Brigid performs a miracle.

Episode 6: The Last Waltz
Ormerod has to make a decision about Caroline. Weatherill's patient is determined to keep the cause of her illness a secret. A married couple face the truth about their future. And Ken's organisational skills ensure the hospital ball goes with a bang.

GREAT GREAT GREAT - Another release of The Royal. I for one can't wait to get this second series. The whole concept of The Royal was well thought out and charming. The series replies on good storylines, music from the 60's that fits the scenes with great acting but without the need foul and bad langauge.

Picking up on a coach-hanger, we have series 2. Without going into too much detail, this is marvellous. Sit back and enjoy the entertainment. Like 'Heartbeat', the realism is not the key. It is the satisfaction of just taking it in. Another six episodes following on from series 1. Now we know the scenario and personalities. More expected,hopefully.
The titles of the episodes are scene setters. They are meaningless in terms of following on and looking forward to the next. Read into what you wish.Memories are made of these. Now we have the record.
1)All At Sea: Dr Cheriton and Taylor go to a fishing boat. Family scuppers.The Weatherills are in an awkward situation to say the least.Ken gets more than hot fat from his chips.
2)Snakes and Ladders:Ian Carmichael ( Middleditch) goes to be replaced by Nigel Harper (John Axon). Hypochondriacs and snake bites take place on the board, but the Ormerod's have to take on depressive suicides.
3)Thicker Than Water: Dedicated Sister Brigid has a moral and faith crisis. The humour is provided by the laundry fiasco by Ken. Not appreciated by Matron.
4)Wishing and Hoping: Whooping cough (prevalent then withought vaccination). Tragic consequences. Mr Rose continues to diagnose everything and anything. Throw your medical dictionary away. Self-operating is not recommended unless you have a pipe to assist (I assume Old Shag has an antiseptic property) plus an ego. Cheriton and Meryl have an excursion. No more said.- until later.
5) One of Those Days. Boating accident? Dr Ormerod is off, as usual, faster than knots at sea. Not a good result. Mr Rose transforms himself into a master of everything again and performs feats seen in the circus. Brilliant. Matched by Sister Brigid. Staff Nurse Meryl Taylor has personal worries.
6)The Last Waltz.

Another great series set in the sixties around a small cottage hospital, this show was one of the best around.
Great acting with a good balance of drama and humour and some great tunes to boot.

I love this show because it takes me back to when I first started nursing. It was a little cottage hospital very similar to St.Aidens.
The ward sisters ruled with a rod of iron and we had a matron so scary, you'd make a bee line for the laundry cupboard or sluice to busy yourself until she's finished her ward rounds.

This is British TV at it's very best and I hope they release all the series on DVD.

I can't recommend this DVD enough, pure nostalgia and if you like Heartbeat, you'll love this.

EXCELLENT SERIES ALONG WITH hEARTBEAT, WHY THEY WERE AXED IS ANYONES GUESS, NO DOUBT TO PLAGUE US WITH MORE AND MORE COOKING PROGRAMMES.

When are we to see the next series and more? A very watchable programme, often very comical and of course a great period of time in our lives when Matron ruled and Surgeons aloof and in this case very comical.

It was great to receive the second series of The Royal. When can we expect the remaining? This television series in my opinion was my all time favorite with Heartbeat. They should never have been taken off the screen. Pure nostalga. I was lucky enough to watch them filming on many accassions.

Whilst I have to say I loved THE ROYAL during its time on TV having watched many episodes of it being filmed and interviewing many of the cast members I have to say that ITV will let you down on these release.

There are no further plans at this time to release anymore episodes on DVD so only Series 1 and 2 is available and due to copyright and repeat fees many of the original songs used in various scenes when they were first broadcast on ITV have been replaced with other inferior tracks making once great thought provoking scenes wishy washy with no emotional impact.
