Plot

Surgical Spirit (TV series) httpsimagesnasslimagesamazoncomimagesMM

The series was based around Sheila Sabatini, a senior surgeon at the Gillies Hospital, whose verbal skills have most people running for cover. She dominated the operating theatre, while at home she was divorcing her Italian husband, Remo, with whom she had a son, Daniel. Sheila was also a gossip, often gossiping with her best friend, theatre administrator Joyce Watson.

One of the major themes in the programme was her developing relationship with Jonathan Haslam, the anaesthetist. At the end of the sixth series, they married and she had become director of surgery, while her son had become a medical student at the hospital, much to her annoyance.

Trivia

Beresford le Roy, who played theatre technician Michael Sampson, was in fact a qualified theatre technician (correct title is in fact operating department practitioner) in real life and later became a medical advisor on the series.

In accordance with UK medical practice, surgeons are referred to as "Mr" or "Mrs". Only physicians are called "doctor" in the UK.

Production

Granada Television decided to decommission the programme after the seventh series.

The outside shots were of Lister Hospital in Stevenage, Hertfordshire.
