- Main article: Oliver Valentine
Oliver Valentine is a Specialist registrar in Cardiothoracic Surgery, currently working on Darwin ward at Holby City Hospital.
Once careless and cock-sure, Oliver Valentine is now a crisp, reserved and capable man of experience, his personal life having been marred by tragedy. First he lost his sister, Penny, then his wife, Tara, all within the walls of Holby. Some might question why he’d want to return to a place with so many ghosts, but Ollie has a natural talent for surgery, and can’t help feeling drawn towards his new colleague, Zosia.
- Main article: Sacha Levy
Sacha Levy (born 6 September 1966) is a consultant general surgeon who currently works on the Keller Ward of Holby City Hospital.
A lovable bear of a man, Sacha Levy's capacity to enjoy life is equalled only by his compassion, he works to live and lives to help people, not to climb the greasy pole. But don't let the laid back jocular exterior fool you! Underneath this larger-than-life facade beats a lion's heart, deftly protecting all that he holds dear.
- Main article: Henrik Hanssen
Henrik Love Hanssen (né Lövborg) is a consultant in general surgery and the current Chief Executive Officer of Holby City Hospital.
Highly intellectual and enigmatic, Swedish-born Hanssen is the epitome of an exceptional leader with razor-sharp focus and meticulous surgical skill. Hanssen’s aloof manner and dry wit belie an often perceptive and compassionate nature but he would never dream of revealing any private moments of weakness. An omniscient and steadfast presence, Holby is safe in
- Main article: Zosia March
Zosia March (born 2 February) is a CT2 trainee cardiothoracic surgeon who currently works on the Darwin Ward of Holby City Hospital.
She isn’t afraid to question hierarchy and she doesn’t feel obliged to fit in, but she is open-minded and fiercely loyal to those she likes.
Business-like when it comes to sex, Zosia is also resoundingly private, hiding a troubled past from a prying world.
- Main article: Dominic Copeland
Dominic "Dom" Copeland is a second year core training doctor who currently works on the Keller Ward of Holby City Hospital.
Troubled and trouble in equal measure, Dom's a wily schemer who is always working an angle. Intelligent and sharp-witted, he's actually very sensitive and is easily wounded, often believing himself to be the victim and justifying his actions as self-defence.
Fiercely protective of, and generous towards, those he favours, Dom can also be surly and vindictive towards those he feels have betrayed him. When it comes to fact versus fiction, Dom prefers to glamorise.
Complicated, unpredictable and deliciously wicked, one thing’s for sure: things are a lot more interesting when Dom's around.
Raf Di Lucca
- Main article: Raf Di Lucca
Raffaello "Raf" Di Lucca is a registrar general surgeron who currently works on Holby City Hospital's AAU.
Dedicated, driven and passionate, Raf loves nothing more than being in the medical “zone”. An expert in resuscitation, he is a true medical pioneer and an energetic force of nature, who is led by his heart rather than his head. A dynamic presence, he can exhaust his team as they struggle to keep up, and can be demanding, quarrelsome and stubborn.
The passion Raf shows in medicine is matched only by the passion and devotion he shows to his wife, Amy, who is his rock and soul-mate… but what happens when the pressure really hits?
Adrian "Fletch" Fletcher
- Main article: Adrian "Fletch" Fletcher
Adrain "Fletch" Fletcher is the current ward manager in the AAU of Holby City Hospital. He joined the department in 2014 shortly after departing his job as a senior staff nurse in the hospital's Emergency Department.
Straight-talking and nobody’s fool, Fletch can dish out tough love when he needs to, but behind it he’s as big-hearted as they come; a dedicated dad always willing to go the extra mile for those in need…
- Main article: Essie Harrison
Estelle "Essie" Harrison is a nurse and transplant co-ordinator at Holby City Hospital, she first arrived on the 6 May 2014.
As a female friend, she's a rock – there’s no earthly wrong that a bucket of wine and a drunken dance can’t right. As a girlfriend, she’s spontaneous, emboldening and fun, though secretly struggles with the fact that Sacha has two demanding ex-wives and three children. Essie’s independence is sometimes a threat to Sacha; he likes to feel depended upon.
In turn, Sacha is driven nuts by her slatternly domestic ways. Essie leaves a trail of girly devastation whenever she gets ready to go out. It reminds him of his daughters!
- Main article: Morven Digby
Morven Elizabeth Digby (née Shreve) is an F2 doctor who currently works in the Acute Admissions Unit of Holby City Hospital. She joined the department in her first year of foundation training in June 2015.
Academic, intelligent, reserved, compassionate, circumspect and also oddly quirky, Morven’s always felt a weight of responsibility to succeed. Morven is determined to learn from the best as a trainee doctor and finds the rush of AAU nothing short of heart-racing. There, between bursts of Shakespeare (Morven can quote entire passages by heart) she exudes a blend of terror and hope: she’s working on real people!
- Main article: Bernie Wolfe
Major Berenice "Bernie" Griselda Wolfe, is a General and Trauma Consultant Surgeon, and Co-Clinical Lead of AAU, she was serving out in Afghanistan with no great hunger to get home prior to joining the team at Holby City.
She’s a surgeon used to quick-fire decisions, not the long-winded bureaucracy that often accompanies civilian life. Bernie’s view is “If I want your opinion, I’ll give it to you” but that’s not to say she isn’t a team player – Bernie is happy to get the rounds in for her squad.
Despite her occasionally brusque approach, Bernie simply sees herself as pragmatic – after all, why would she let someone else do a job that she can do better and faster?
- Main article: Jasmine Burrows
Jasmine Burrows (born 1991/1992) is a junior doctor who'll start working on Darwin ward of Holby City Hospital from 11 April 2017. She started working at the hospital on 19 July 2016.
Dr Jasmine Burrows an F1 and the half-sister of Jac Naylor. The firecracker to her half-sister Jac's ice queen, Jasmine is like a stick of dynamite waiting to be lit. She can think on her feet in a crisis, and possesses a sharp wit to boot.
As if in the genes, Jasmine has a streak of the Machiavellian in her, and knows how to manipulate a situation (often with her charms, but also with some blunt truth telling when the time calls for it).
But whilst she holds many similarities to her sister, Jasmine has an almost unnatural ability to charm – she’s a magnet, even when she’s a nightmare people will still defend her, are drawn to her.
- Main article: Matteo Rossini
Matteo Rossini is a consultant cardiothoracic surgeon who currently works on the Darwin Ward of Holby City Hospital.
His curiosity for people and new experiences knows no bounds. He is unwittingly arrogant and humorously grandiose at times (he claims that Carla Bruni once propositioned him at a medical charity event and were it not for his largesse, encouraging her to stay with Sarkozy, the course of French national history might have been changed forever). He’s also a bit of a tech junkie, and is working on various apps with bright young things across the pond in Silicon Valley.
Damon is a F1 on Holby City`s Darwin Ward
