London Hospital is a British television series featured on BBC. The show is a period piece, set a century ago in London at the Royal London Hospital. The show is romantic and dramatic - centering around the romances, casework and surgeries of incoming patients, doctors and nurses. The show is entertaining as well as educational, as it provides some insight into what types of diseases havocked the town then, and the types of medical practices doctors used in response. It tells the story of Ada Russell, a nurse, and Dr. James Walton , who are madly in love with each other. The couple debate whether they should marry, since it is forbidden for Ada and James to date as they are co-workers. Either Ada or James would have to leave the hospital should they decide to wed. Luckes, another character on the show, has a hard time coping with the death of a nurse who worked at the hospital. Also, Sydney Holland, a man in charge of financing the hospital and new ventures, has a hard time raising funds.
