not really worthy
9 January 2003 | by (Brighton, England) – See all my reviews

It had it's moments but this series generally was no where near worthy of the cast it had - paticularly Reece Shearsmith who is my favorite LoG member. He basically played recently qualified doctor Flynn and remained okish throughout the series this was because although he and everyone else tried they inevitably failed because any humour they produced was just recycled out in the next episode because the script was formulaic and lazy. Basically the humour points were centred around the difficulties of being a doctor and running and hospital in the NHS. For example the lack of sleep the doctor's get which dominated an entire episode. When this had been used in a episode then the eccentricities of the patients that came in. When this had been used they would make a joke about how slow the very slwo porter Sid was something that I had grasped to my satisfaction a hell of a long time ago. Or they'd let the nurses make an offensive comment to Flynn or let Terry make an campy comment. However I didn't hate it not by any means I love Shearsmith and i did find enough rewards and laughs to keep me watching, but the engineering of these laughs was far too obvious
