The Royal S 1-8
The Royal is a British medical drama series produced by ITV. The show comprises one hour episodes which were normally first aired on ITV in the Sunday early evening slot.
The title of the series refers to the fictional "St Aidan’s Royal Free Hospital", located in the rural seaside town of Elsinby close to Aidensfield and the actual towns of Whitby and Scarborough. The hospital served both the local farmers and townsfolk and visiting holidaymakers. The show was set in the 1960s and the outside scenes were filmed in the North Yorkshire holiday resort of Scarborough. It began as a spin-off from the other popular ITV show set in North Yorkshire, Heartbeat.
