Storyline

Love, sickness, health and exam anxiety at a Danish hospital in the 50s. Erik (Morten Hee Andersen) and Anna (Molly Blixt Egelind) are among the first to be accepted into a nursing school with men and women being trained together. Due to a lack of trained nurses, the danish government decides, on a trial basis, that it is acceptable for a man to work as a nurse. It is not easy for the men to be accepted as nurses in an working environment with old-fashioned hierarchies and strict disciplinary work ethics. Written by Morten Albrekt Lange

Heartwarming
1 November 2020 | by louiseandphilSee all my reviews

A hugely enjoyable drama that looks at how the first male nurses were received in postwar Denmark. Both the script and cast are on top form and the episodes manage to get the balance right between the comic and the tragic, resulting in a believable and engaging series. We watched this as the second Covid lockdown began and it really helped to alleviate the gloom.
