HolbyBlue returns with some new faces as well as topical, emotive and edgy storylines in an extended series of 12 episodes that follow the everyday heroes from Holby South Station.The new series kicks off with an intriguing investigation for DI John Keenan and DS Luke French; a murder at Holby City General initially looks to be quite a simple affair as the hospital’s well respected registrar, Jac Naylor, is accused of stabbing a man whilst on duty and her colleagues aren’t falling over themselves to help prove her innocence.The evidence is stacked against the head-strong doctor and following a humiliating arrest at the hospital she is subjected to a series of gruelling questions at Holby South Station in a storyline that spans both dramas – the first time HolbyBlue has crossed paths with its sister show.Series creator, Tony Jordan says: ‘It’s a really interesting experiment for us to have such an integrated storyline across both shows. Two of our officers go to the hospital to arrest one of HOLBY CITY’s most popular characters and then the Holby South CID give her a good grilling!New to this extended series is young and charismatic DCI Scott Vaughan (Oliver Milburn) who is drafted in to replace disgraced DCI Harry Hutchinson who was arrested at his own retirement party on corruption charges. John is relieved to be rescued from the mountain of paperwork he’s had to deal with whilst he’s been filling in as acting DCI but his trust in his superiors has been severely bruised and Scott has to prove his worth to his well worn DI.Inspector Jenny Black (Kacey Ainsworth) is still in charge of uniform including PC’s Robert Clifton (Kieran O’Brien), Lucy Slater (Elaine Glover), Kelly Cooper (Chloe Howman), Neil Parker (Jimmy Akingbola) and William Jackson (Joe Jacobs). But the tragic death of one of the officers sends shockwaves through the team..
