A man is seduced by his wife's midwife and has sex with her in the next room whilst his own wife is in the middle of giving birth. A doctor insists on going to the next room to listen to his patient...
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.
An interweaving narrative chronicling the antics of such diverse characters as: a transsexual taxi driver, a family obsessed with hygiene and toads, a fiery reverend, a carnival owner who kidnaps women into marriage, and a xenophobic couple who run a local shop for local people.
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.
A collection of bleakly dark comedy sketches pushing the boundaries of taste, decency and television in general, shot using new and different techniques and fading slowly in and out of each other against a slow musical soundtrack. Regular themes include death, insanity and, most often of all, the medical profession. Written by

During the Thick Agency sketch in episode 1, the CCTV footage of Julia Davis approaching the help desk shows both the boom mic and camera operators standing behind her. The camera is visible again moments later in the sketch, reflected in the help desk's window. See more »
I provide a service despatching stupid people for the things they're best at. Like winning arguments. Stupid people are great at winning arguments because they're too stupid to realize they've lost.

I love it as I love most of Chris's work and I'm also a huge fan of Mark (Mr. Lizard) Heap, Kevin Eldon, David (thats your knee) Cann, Roz McCutcheon and Amelia Bullmore, who combined make this soooo good. little seen but much influence which is quite ironic considering what I'm going to say next.
I believe I have found Christopher's influence for this series. Yes 'Lady Junes Linguistic Leprosy', I listened to this for the first time in years, and it made me wretch up images from this marvelous show. Nothing wrong with that it's not a criticism, on the contrary, this is as good as influences get. Knowing Chris, as any stalker worth his salt would, I know he listens to a lot of eclectic music and probably came to this, like many of us, through Eno and Ayers involvement.
I could be wrong though... nah
