Casualty wins big at BAFTA!
Casualty wins Best Soap & Continuing Drama at this year's BAFTA TV Awards...
The BBC medical drama was up against stiff competition such as Emmerdale, Hollyoaks and Coronation Street. George Rainsford (Ethan) and Chelsea Halfpenny (Alicia) collected the award along with Oliver Kent (Head of Continuing Drama), Lucy Raffety (Series Producer), Simon Harper (Executive Producer), Mark Catley (Series Executive Consultant) and Erika Hossington (Former Series Producer).
“We'd like to thank everyone who watches the show. The doors of Holby City Hospital have been opened for 32 years now, which is an amazing achievement, especially when you consider the dubious mortality rates of the patients and staff there!”
George went on to say “Maintaining the high standards of a long-running drama wouldn’t be possible without a large team of dedicated, upbeat, talented people. I’m pleased to say were lucky enough to have those at Casualty!”
“So this is for you! For everyone involved with the show, who work so hard to make it what it is.”
This is the second time Casualty has won a BAFTA, previously winning Best Continious Drama in 2007.
