Fast, furious and real
6 May 2005 | by WILLOWSYKESSee all my reviews

Its not set in London (or Manchester). Its based on the premise that nurses and doctors are not god like creatures. Lots of sex and very un PC. I mean nurses smoking cigarettes drinking to excess and having casual sex! Florence Nightingale this isn't.

If you have a traditional in your view of hospitals as genteel places, where silent beautiful nurses glide from bed to bed caring for ill grateful patents with a stoic handsome Dr on call 24 hours a day, then you will hate this. The nurses have lives outside the hospital! The patents are sick with visible illnesses! The staff are under resourced and under pressure! It deals with death, sex, incompetence and relationships. Its is enjoyable and well worth a look and because it isn't prime time it doesn't have the "pre watershed" censor that Casualty/Holby City do so it can be that bit more realistic.

These are real characters and after two series the actresses have got them to a T. They are incredibly real and you can see what motivates them to continue in a massively rewarding and then unrewarding vocation.

Apparently all the scenes are based on real life incidents. Obviously compressed into hour long episodes but never the less they are in the main realistic. Third series? A new main character perhaps but it would be very welcome.
