Blast from the Past: Damian O’Hare in “The Royal”

Posted in the royal, tv with tags , , , , on 3 February, 2012 by ambarussa

It’s been a while, but many of you certainly remember Damian O’Hare as Dr. Nick Burnett in “The Royal”. Not an episode went by without him rescuing kittens, Brownies or little old ladies, performing the Heimlich maneuver or smooching the nurse.

One dedicated “Royalist” has sent me the link to some promo shots and a series of pictures taken on the set of  “The Royal” in 2008 during the filming of Damian’s first episode, “Against All Odds”. The pictures are tiny, but you can still tell that it must have been very wet and very cold.

While I sit here waiting for the results of “Spray-on Snow Frost” on the windows of my living room (so far, they look as if they were covered in hairspray, but I haven’t given up hope yet), I might as well remind you that

the deadline for the


is 30th November, 2010, midnight GMT.

You still have the chance to win an original autograph of Damian O’Hare and a selection of chocolate.

“Tact? Why would I need tact if I have a stethoscope?”

I’m a carnivore myself, but the cheap shots at vegetarians and vegans are beginning to grate on my nerves. Harharhar healthy food is icky, and sitar music in the background, so original and witty. I suppose the authors have never been to Tibits on Heddon Street in London. They should.

This just in: Hell froze over, pigs are flying and The Royal is back!

Incredible, but true:



For the last three episodes of season 7, that is. As for season 8: I have no idea. By now I’m convinced that ITV schedules its airing dates by flipping a coin or rolling the dice.

Edited: They have now, post-episode, changed the numbering of the series. So this is not S07E10, but S08E01. The mind, it boggles.

Here’s a brief summary for S08E01 “In The Air”:

Have Judith and her baby also been poisoned?

Will Rose lose his job and his friend in one day?

Does he see her as marriage material or just a casual fling?

Will Susie leave The Royal for good?

This is my favourite, though:

His body’s a temple, but he’d do anything for fish and chips.

That tagline ought to be printed on t-shirts!

“The Royal” returns!

Looks like I’ve been too early wishing you a Happy Easter, and on top of that, I lost my bet… not that I mind, though!

“The Royal” – and Damian O’Hare as Dr. Nick Burnett – will return to your screens on 21 June – on ITV1, sponsored by “Welcome to Yorkshire” (that would be the former Yorkshire Tourist board).

“(…) Welcome to Yorkshire will sponsor the upcoming 9 x 60-minute series of Heartbeat and the 6 x 60-minute new season of The Royal in a bid to help draw tourists to the north of England.

It is the first time the tourism board, formerly known as the Yorkshire Tourism Board, has sponsored a television programme. (…)”

“(…) The Royal, which depicts the life and times of a 1960s hospital, set in the heart of its Yorkshire community, returns on 21 June. (…)”

According to the report, the deal includes broadcast sponsorship on ITV1, catch-up content, online and bumper ads for mobile phone content.

Finally an innovative tourist board. Neat!
