"We can now confirm that Peter has completed all his filming
obligations with the BBC for Holby City, and is back at home in Los
Angeles. The year has been the most extraordinary period work-wise -
exciting, challenging and lots of fun. Personally, it's been very
hard being so far away from family for such a long period. It's full
steam ahead, therefore, in the search for the next role."
A bit later: somebody on one of the Holby forums said he finished filming three weeks ago, and will only be on till mid October. So this is a double bummer if true, since I thought he'd at least be on episodes till late November.
