Last year, following the success of the Sydney Harbour Hospital series, eight of your medical authors toiled away on a fab, new, editor-led, medical continuity set in an exclusive plastic surgery clinic on London’s famous Harley Street.
These are the opening paragraphs of the bible sent to us by the medical editorial team.
“Welcome to 200 Harley Street, the luxurious premises of an exclusive plastic and reconstructive surgery clinic in the world-renowned Harley Street, in the heart of London’s glittering West End. Owned by two very different brothers, Leo and Ethan Hunter, 200 Harley Street undertakes both cosmetic and reconstructive surgery. Playboy Leo handles the rich and famous clients, enjoying the red carpet glamour of London’s A-list social scene, while brooding ex-army doc Ethan focuses his time on his passion – transforming the lives of injured war heroes and civilian casualties of war.
The Hunter Clinic’s reputation for excellence has attracted only the top surgeons, who specialise in post-cancer reconstruction, paediatric plastic surgery, hand surgery, facial reconstruction, burns and microsurgery, as well as cosmetic procedures. They are supported by a dedicated team of skilled, highly professional nurses.
Linked to the Princess Catherine Hospital (Kate’s), favoured by royal families around the world, and The Lighthouse Children’s Hospital, consultations and operations are carried out both at the clinic and the hospitals.
Emotion and drama abound against the backdrop of one of Europe’s most glamorous cities, as Leo and Ethan work through their tensions, find women that will transform their lives and their emotional landscapes, Europe’s hottest royal, Prince Marco is brought in for an operation himself, and the woman who tore the brothers apart makes a spectacular return!”
You can see why all eight of us loved working on this, right? Who can resist the lure of such a great setting and such a diverse range of characters?

Before I go, I’m curious to know, what have been some of your favourite continuity series – doesn’t have to be medical, doesn’t have to be Harlequin. And why? And also for those dedicated medical fans, what setting/scenario would you like to see explored in future medical continuities?
