Since holby.tv (previously known as “The Casualty Files”) launched in July 2001 the site has quickly grown from just a few pages, to one of the UK’s most popular CASUALTY and HOLBY CITY fansites. However, although there are now hundreds of pages and countless photos the basic site is still community driven and dedicated to the UK’s favourite medical dramas!
