Welcome to WikiProject Holby. This WikiProject is a collaboration area and open group of editors dedicated to improving Wikipedia's coverage of articles related to the three BBC television series set in the fictional city of Holby - encompassing Casualty, Holby City and HolbyBlue. We currently have 92 articles under the scope of this project, which generally includes articles where Casualty, Holby City and/or HolbyBlue are a relevant focus to the subject. This WikiProject aims primarily to improve and organise these articles in an attempt to establish a standard. Such an effort endeavours to produce a reference that has value as an authority on material within the television series, is easy to read, and has a consistent style.

If you would like to help, please inquire on the talk page, add yourself to the list of participants, see the to-do list or just start editing.

What do we include?

The main criteria for inclusion should be notability. That being said, to avoid clutter and confusion, we should note the following.


Most characters that appear in Casualty, Holby City and HolbyBlue do not pass the notability guidelines on fiction. Each character that appears can be included in one of the lists of characters, such as List of characters in Holby City or Characters of Casualty. Even characters with a separate article should be included in these lists. Articles can be de-merged if they grow very large, but please discuss them first.


Illustrations for Holby-related articles are typically taken from screen captures, publicity materials, magazine articles and websites. As such they're nearly all non-free and must only be used in conformance with the Non-free content criteria. Exceptions include pictures of people involved in the writing or production of Casualty, Holby City and HolbyBlue, which have been released under free licenses: licenses that allow third parties to modify images and use images commercially. For a gallery of free Holby-related images, see here. Some non-free images currently in Holby-related articles lack detailed or sufficient fair use rationales justifying their use in the articles. Such images are in danger of deletion; you can remedy this by writing better rationales.
