Why isn’t Holby City on tonight? When will it return?

Holby City unfortunately isn't on in its usual Tuesday night slot - here's the latest news and what is on instead

Holby City isn’t on again this evening as usual because the BBC1 drama stopped filming temporarily due to the coronavirus. And it still currently isn’t in the schedules.

It’s now nearly a month since it was on our screens, with the last episode going out on August 11.

The good news is that the hit show is filming again, so Holby City fans hopefully won’t have too long to wait to find out what happens next.

Casualty’s last episode – before its break – went out on Saturday 22nd August. While Doctors fans are also waiting to find out exactly when their soap will be back on our screens. Doctors might now not be back on TV until October, although this is also still to be confirmed.

The BBC is yet to officially announce when Holby City will return. Unfortunately the soap has run out of episodes that were filmed before lockdown. But with filming at least up and running again it hopefully won’t be too long.

At least soap fans have at last got EastEnders back on their screens. And EastEnders star Jessica Plummer has spoken out following the tragic news that Chantelle Atkins is set to die at the hands of her abusive husband.

Here’s tonight’s BBC1 schedule – Tuesday 8 September (see our TV guide for full listings).
