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

Best comedy in years.
11 April 2018 | by leejj-45133See all my reviews

I thought hospital based comedy was finished. Doing it from the point of view of porters instead of doctors and nurse is refreshing. Only disappointment is there were only three episodes. I really hope there will be more to come.
