Holby City: Crafting Malick's fake limbs
Episode 52 saw one of Holby City's most loved characters - Antoine Malick - sustain a severe injury in a road traffic accident.
I'm the head of prosthetics for Holby City and it was my team’s job to make the fake limbs used in that episode. In this video I show the creative process that went into making Malick’s injury look as realistic as possible – under the scrutiny of today’s enormous televisions and HD!
Megan Thomas is head of prosthetics on Holby City. Hannah King, who filmed this interview, is a researcher in BBC TV and iPlayer.
Like A Prayer, the episode featuring Malick’s accident, was on Tuesday, 8 October at 8pm on BBC One and BBC One HD, and 10.35pm on BBC One Scotland. It is available to watch on BBC iPlayer until Tuesday, 15 October.
