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...

Top Customer Reviews
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.Read more ›
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.
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.
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.
