Angels

Show Summary

Angels is a BBC medical soap-opera which launched on 1st September 1975 and was the blue print for such medical soaps as Casualty, Holby City, plus daytime soap, Doctors. The medical soap focuses on different departments within Heath Green Hospital and was a highly successful continuing drama. It featured familar faces from its time and had Julia Smith & Tony Holland on the production crew who would go on to create EastEnders & Eldorado. But after nine seasons and 220 episodes the BBC pulled the plug on this successful drama on 22nd December 1983. Several of the actors and actresses that featured in the show did indeed go on to have regular roles in EastEnders.

    Brill!! I never got chance to watch as i was too young but my sister is in one of the episodes and i saw that constantly when i was a child! They used our local school in Coventry and she is everso proud. However we have lost the original tape and so want the bbc to re release the series. How do we go about getting this released or does anyone have a copy of that episode? Someone must have it. Especially as this was a 'tester' for all the medical dramas we have today. trying to use all my words!moreless

    angels was unique

    because there was nothing like it at the time and the cast was perfect.

    and at least one of the original angels cast(pauline quirke)went on to more success in other dramas and sitcoms.

    i wish angels could be repeated and brought out on dvd.

    brilliant hospital drama on the bbc
