Casualty 1900s DVD


All ten episodes of the acclaimed historical hospital drama. Featuring true cases characters and events taken from the London Hospital records nurse's ward diaries and intimate memoirs these gritty medical series show the lives - and forbidden romances - of pioneering doctors and nurses a hundred years ago. Run with a will of iron by formidable Matron Eva Luckes the hospital in London's poverty-stricken East End deals with anything from infectious diseases like syphilis pneumonia and tuberculosis to shocking injuries of the times such as self-abortion injuries victims... of anarchist bombings and an East End gang member wounded in a shooting. For the volunteer nurses and doctors - including Nurse Russell Dr Culpin Nurse Bennett Dr Walton and the surgeons Hurry Fenwick and cocaine-addicted Dr Dean - work is tough and relentless. Relationships between staff might be strictly forbidden but romance continues to blossom away from the Matron's gaze. In a time of great change the hospital constantly faces up to the future. Pioneering radiographers work with the perilous x-ray equipment chloroform is scandalously introduced as an anaesthetic and the use of revolutionary new electro-mechanical devices are instigated. Equally gritty and heart-warming these series bring the Edwardian hospital compellingly to life - illuminating the dramas and romances of a fascinating medical era. [show more]
