After publishing a rant about 'idiots' - frantically hip, ignorant scenesters - Dan Ashcroft finds these same people embracing him as his idol and his nerves constantly tested by his biggest fan, moronic scene personality Nathan Barley.
This parody series is an unearthed 80s horror/drama, complete with poor production values, awful dialogue and hilarious violence. The series is set in a Hospital in Romford, which is situated over the gates of Hell.

I had heard many good things about this program. My friend called it 'the funniest thing I have ever seen'. I heard that I had a whole host of excellent comedians and comedy actors involved in it to some degree. It even had the legend that is Simon Pegg starring! Plus the Father Ted two as as writers? This has to be comedy gold. Alas, no, the first series, the only one I have seen so far, is a major disappointment. Maybe it has suffered in my eyes by being built up too much. None-the-less, and I know this is a matter of opinion, it is just not that funny. Granted there are one or two funny sketches and some very clever idea, but nothing there to elevate Big Train above most other sketch shows. I found many sketches were drawn out and as a result died a horrible death. I'm about to watch the second series which I have been assured is vastly superior to the first. I'm keeping my fingers firmly crossed.
