I stumbled across this last week when changing channels. When I saw Ade Edmondson and Mina Anwar were in it, I thought I'd be in for an unexpected treat. How disappointed was I to discover a tired, predictable, formulaic sitcom with very few, if any, laughs. Is this trying to be a British "Scrubs"? Why is Ade Edmondson, famous for his anarchic sense of humour, playing a role that appears to have been written for somebody like Peter Davison or Robert Lindsey? Maybe it will develop with time. Mina Anwar is always worth watching and she almost saves the show. But not quite. When you consider the quality of some of the shows on Radio 4 and BBC3 and this gets on air? What is going on? What next, Rik Mayall in a sitcom about a long suffering Dentist with a quirky family and a formidable wife? Oh no, hang on, Robert Lindsey IS in that one!
