Storyline

Deluded Simon Porter dreams of passing his medical exam and becoming a doctor - but by starting at the bottom, and becoming the best porter the NHS has ever seen. All he has to do is survive a few months grafting in a hospital basement and try not to kill any of the patients. How hard can that be? Ed must work alongside the cynical, self-styled "Queen of the Porters" Frankie, and naïve nurse Lucy. Written by john traynor

Does no harm, but brings little laughter to the wards
20 September 2017 | by See all my reviews

A vanilla sitcom, set in a hospital, that doesn't push the envelope in any way (cf. Green Wing). Pretty harmless, but not particularly entertaining.

Having watched the first episode, I wasn't enticed to watch the final two.

The most interesting aspect was Rutger Hauer's character. As well portrayed as you'd expect by such an experienced and talented actor; and nicely scripted. But he's too much of a background ("Zen Master") character, to really pull you in. No "I've seen bedpans on fire off the shoulder of Orion" moments, I'm afraid.
