For an actor who’s survived more deaths than most, the original Mr Manimal remains optimistic
There’s a Casualty/Holby City special this Saturday. What is it?
It’s an organ donation episode. It’s the end of the BBC’s organ donor week, and we’ve combined with Holby to do a story that is organ-donor driven but has some reality TV elements to it.
What, as in people will vote out the organ they don’t like?
No. We’ve already created the drama part but the programme’s going to be bookended by Professor Robert Winston who makes an appeal in order to promote the notion of donation, which is also being pronounced as Do-Nation – as in the nation should respond by getting on to the organ donation register.
