BBC One’s medical drama Holby City heads to Scandinavia in early January for a special storyline featuring Jac Naylor and missing hospital boss Henrik Hanssen.
Jac (Rosie Marcel) is told Hanssen (Guy Henry) is in his native Stockholm where he’s blocking a financial offer from a Swedish pharmaceutical company that would pump £40m into the hospital.
She is then charged with the task of going to Stockholm, finding Hanssen and more particularly, finding out why he is sabotaging what would be a lifeline to the hospital.
What follows is a story exploring Hanssen’s past, discovering why he has been missing for the past few months, and also looking towards his future and whether he will indeed return to Holby.
Meanwhile, back at the hospital, Luc (Joseph Millson) is haunted by events from the past and despite Michael (Hari Dhillon) and Sacha’s (Bob Barrett) best efforts, he seems to be heading off the rails. Will he be able to face his fears and get back on track?
Series Head Writer Justin Young says: “We are very excited and proud to announce one of the most ambitious episodes Holby’s ever made.
“With extraordinary performances and a stunning visual backdrop, it’s an epic, cinematic episode which takes viewers on what we hope will be an unforgettable journey to the very heart of our two most enigmatic characters: Luc Hemingway and Henrik Hanssen. It’s a story about love, confronting the past, and – for one of our characters – new beginnings.”
This special episode will air at 8pm on BBC One and BBC One HD on Tuesday 8 January 2013.
