I misidentified the lead actress from the trailer I saw - it is Cherie Lunghi, not Jane Seymour
Details are in Imbd at http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1078267/
where it is summarised as:
"Uses case notes, ward diaries and memoirs from archives at the Royal London Hospital in Whitechapel, to bring real doctors, nurses and patients from a Victorian London hospital back to life."
I taped CASUALTY 1908 off the TV when it was on and I've been building up a DVD of them, having just transferred the second episode which then crashed the disc. I'd wiped the first episode off from my original VHS and now the disc is corrupted and I can't watch it at all.
Did anyone record the three-part series? I'd buy it on DVD but I don't think it's been issued. I'm keen on getting it all, and the 1907 one-off that was shown in 2007.
I've got lots and lots of Ripper programmes I can swap!

BBC4 Showed the Pilot Episode at 9 o'clock last night (Casualty 1906).
I had missed this episode the first time around but loved it, especially the gaurds at the gates, the operation scenes, and the way the wards were cleaned!
Still no plans for a general release, nor have any other episodes appeared on the the BBC channels.
