Sheila Sabatini is a brilliant surgeon, but her sharp tongue gets her into trouble with fellow consultant surgeons George Hope-Wynne and Neil Copeland. They think she's a "ghastly woman", mainly because she likes to unearth their lazy and hypocritical behavior at every opportunity. However, her best friend Joyce and her anesthetist Jonathan Haslam thinks she's marvelous. Can she make it in the hospital's old boy network, keep her relationship with her teenage son at least semi-functional at the same time as sorting out how she feels about Jonathan? Written by

I remember watching this when it was first aired back in 1989, and I loved it. It was British comedy at is absolute best.
I forgot about after it finished, and now ITV 3 are running re-runs and its like I am falling in love all over again. And although 15 years or so have gone since it first started the sublime jokes still remain side-splitting and the characters stay identifiable.
The only bad thing I can say about it is the sets, looking at them you can really tell its been 15 years!
Actually I lied I thought of another bad thing, it finished!!!
Overall this show is a show that will remain a T.V Classic Gem for decades to come.
