EastEnders fans spot hidden link between BBC soap and axed drama Holby City

EastEnders fans have spotted a major link between the soap’s Walford General Hospital set and recently axed BBC medical drama, Holby City.

Viewers were given a harsh reminder of the now cancelled series after the set was used for some scenes in the soap.

Eagle-eyed fans recognised the old hospital set used for scenes involving Ben Mitchell and Kheerat Panesar on last week’s episode as they visited the sexual health clinic to get Ben’s HIV test results.

As the pair strolled down the clinic’s corridors, fane began realizing it looked strangely familiar.

‘Random question… The Walford Sexual Health clinic looks remarkably like the old Holby set or is it me? #EastEnders ’ tweeted one sharp-eyed fan and others were quick to pitch in and agree.

‘they actually are using the Holby set’ one said while another demanded, ‘RIGHT, WHYY?? GET HOLBY BACK ON THAT SET.’

Though some were comforted by the Holby nod, saying: ‘Holby lives on in the form of Walford General’.

EastEnders is filmed right next door to the buildings that once belonged to Holby City, making the fusion an obvious choice for the BBC.
