Period medical drama based on documented events


CASUALTY 1906 and 1907 (aka London Hospital) is a powerful ‘you are there’ drama that uses case notes, Ward Reports, autopsy records and intimate diaries from 100 years ago to bring actual doctors, nurses and patients at the Royal London Hospital vividly back to life. Plunging us into the medical crises in London’s teeming, desperately poor East End the drama delivers a grittily realistic experience of life a hundred years ago.
