Jonathan Kydd plays Barry Swindell in tonight’s episode of Holby City on BBC One at 8pm.
The BBC series which was created by Tony McHale and Mal Young as a spin-off from the established BBC medical drama Casualty, has been nominated for over 100 television awards, of which it has won six: the 2008 British Academy Television Award for “Best Continuing Drama”, two Ethnic Multicultural Media Awards and three Screen Nation Awards.
It is set in the same hospital as Casualty, Holby General, in the fictional city of Holby, and features occasional crossovers of characters and plots with Casualty. The show follows the lives of medical and ancillary staff at the fictional Holby City Hospital. It began with eleven main characters in its first series, all of whom have since left the show. New main characters have been both written in and out of the series since, with a core of fifteen main actors employed on the serial at any given time. In casting the first series, Young sought out actors who were already well known in the television industry, something which has continued throughout the show’s history, with cast members including Patsy Kensit, Jane Asher, Robert Powell and Adrian Edmondson.Overview
