The BBC One drama is the latest show impacted by the lockdown


Holby City is the latest continuing drama impacted by the lockdown.

The BBC One series had announced a series of huge storylines set to play over out over the next month, but will now change its schedule beginning next week.

A spokesperson for the BBC confirmed to Digital Spy that Holby City will be going on an extended hiatus following Tuesday's episode (April 14), until it returns with new episodes at some point later this year.

Next Tuesday's episode will be action-packed in the aftermath of John Michie's shocking return as Guy Self, as he provides support for Max McGerry (Jo Martin) while she struggles to hold the hospital together.

Viewers will also see Cameron Dunn's (Nic Jackman) killer secret and his job both under threat, while Essie Harrison (Kaye Wragg) tells her colleagues the tragic news about her cancer returning.


Back in March, the BBC confirmed that Casualty, Holby City and Doctors had all been forced to halt filming over health concerns for the casts and crews working on all three shows.

"It has been decided that filming on all BBC Studios continuing dramas will be postponed until further notice," the BBC said in a statement at that time. "The decision was made after the latest government update.

"We will continue to follow the latest news and advice from the World Health Organisation and public health organisations."

The BBC has also shut down filming on BBC One soap EastEnders, and also cut down its weekly schedule to just two episodes per week.

Holby City airs these scenes on Tuesday, April 14 at 8pm on BBC One.
