Storyline

An offbeat comedy from the team behind 'Smack the Pony', set in a hospital, and is very much character-based, with storylines involving a staff liasion officer who hates people, a humourless consultant who thinks he's funny, and a handful of sexual predators and inadequates. Written by lordedmund

Quotes

Dr. Caroline Todd: But what if you were being chased by the hounds, and you knew you had cubs that needed you back at the den?
Dr. Guilaume Secretan: Well, I'd just move on, find another Supervixen and start again.
Dr. Caroline Todd: Yes, I think you would, wouldn't you? Shall we get going, then?
Dr. Guilaume Secretan: Yeah, but that was all hypothetical. Anyway I'm going back for them.
Dr. Caroline Todd: Oh, it's too late for that. The hounds tore them all to shreds!
Dr. Guilaume Secretan: NO! NO! My cubs! My cubs! Dead! How could this happen! AHHH!

Fascinating physical & mental comedy
10 October 2004 | by misstest123See all my reviews

An instant addiction, the big cast of characters are bizarre but complex enough to be believably human (unlike, say, the support roles in Will and Grace). The way they all *move* is brilliant just on its own - especially the sickeningly smooth Dr Guy (did you see him sucking Dr Martin's shirt at the party?)and Joanna the Manager, a marionette on speed. The dialogue is sharp and very funny (huge team of writers) and on top of all this, there are enough plot lines to make you really care about these hyped-up weirdos, even the radiologist nerd, played by Mark Heap, who in contrast to all geek mythology ever, gets LOADS of sex. Even if the sex is funny enough to make you wince.

So much more witty than the "let's muck about dressed up in women's clothes, har har" style of recent "Little Britain" and "League of Gentlemen".

This is a great direction for British comedy/sit-coms to veer off on. More more!
