Joe McFadden returns to Holby City as Raf Di Lucca for special episode
Joe McFadden will reprise his role as Raf Di Lucca and will grace the Holby City wards once again for a special episode which will air later this month on BBC One.
It may come as a surprise to viewers, to say the least, since Raf was shot… and died… in 2017.
Raf comes back to Holby in a very special way when his widow Essie (played by Kaye Wragg) continues to struggle with her cancer diagnosis and searches for answers from a comforting place.
On his return to Holby City, Joe McFadden says: “I’ll always look back on my four years on Holby with such fondness as it was one of the happiest jobs I’ve done and it was a real pleasure to get to wear Raf’s scrubs one last time in order to offer his wife Essie some guidance in such a touching episode.”
The episode will air later this month on BBC One. Holby City is a BBC Studios production.
