Kate, CBeebies Grown-ups

Dr Ranj returns on Monday 16th November with a brand new series of Get Well Soon but with an exciting new element - it's set in the very hospital Dr Ranj works in!
CBeebies Grown-ups sat down to have a chat to the lovely doctor and the series' producer, Gerard, to find out a little more about what the little ones can expect from the series.
What’s changed in this series?
DR RANJ: With this series, we really wanted to take things out of the doctor’s surgery and into hospital, where so many children around the country each year have appointments, tests and procedures. The opportunity to film at the Evelina London came up and I jumped at the chance - not only because it’s a beautiful place, but it’s also where I work!
We’ve got the same characters that we’ve all grown to love, but in an amazing new setting where we get to explore so much more. It was so much fun to film.
GERARD: With moving the show into the hospital, we thought it was important to make the experience as...

The show is about having fun and being silly in a safe, familiar environment. It’s been devised specifically for very young pre-school audience, with a pace and language they understand. Fun and laughter are at the very heart of the show.
As all parents and those who spend time with little ones know, young children love to experiment and gain confidence through repetition....
