Why isn't Holby City on tonight? When will it be shown?

England take on the USA in the semi-final of the Women's World Cup

Published: Tuesday, 2nd July 2019 at 7:00 pm

Holby City becomes a casualty (see what we did there?) of BBC1's sports coverage as it vacates its usual Tuesday-night time slot to make way for England's Women's World Cup semi-final clash with the US live from 7:30pm.


This is the second time in recent weeks that Holby has been postponed – viewers may recall that it also made way for the Conservative Party leadership debate.

As recompense, BBC1 will be broadcasting two episodes next week: on Tuesday 9th and Wednesday 10th July at 8pm. (If you're a viewer in Scotland, the Tuesday 9th July episode will be shown at 10:35pm.)

You can read the synopses for both instalments below:
