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!
