Spin off from Holby City (1999) and Casualty (1986), taking place in and around Holby South police station and focusing on the police who work with the doctors and paramedics from Holby City and Casualty.
A series set in the fictional village of Pontyberry in the South Wales Valleys centered on the lives of a single mother in her forties, who earns a living doing the locals' ironing, and her family and friends.
Caz goes to visit his friend Ray in jail as a way of smuggling in small amounts of drugs. However on this particular exchange things are not entirely what they seem.
This short is very simple and manages to have a weird comedic tone running through it as Caz and Ray sit and make small talk in the busy visiting room. It isn't hilarious but it is pretty amusing. When the story eventually moves to the switchover the tone changes a little as we learn something about the two men. However the final 30 seconds are very funny.
It's difficult to make a comedy out of sticking drugs up your anus, but this manages to do it for the most part. Thomas is pretty good in the lead but Harrington is much better and very amusing and larger than life.
It may well be very slight and just be a one-joke comedy but it's still worth a look. Considering the limitations it is well written, well directed and well paced so that it's not trying to be a laugh a second anymore than it wants to be an one-joke sketch.
