This week we review - Green Wing (Series 1 Episode 1)
Green Wing follows the lives of the staff of the East Hampton Hospital Trust.
The series begins with the arrival of new surgical registrar Dr Caroline Todd (Tamsin Greig), a woman who seems to manage to constantly put herself in the most embarrassing situations.
During her time in the hospital she begins to form friendships with her two co-workers: half-Swiss, womanising anaesthetist Dr Guy Secretan (Stephen Mangan), and cool surgeon Dr 'Mac' Macartney (Julian Rhind-Tutt). It is not long before these friendships become stronger, but who will end up dating whom?
A strong supporting cast boasts performances from Karl Theobald as a well-meaning house officer, Sarah Alexander as senior paediatric registrar Dr Angela Hunter, Olivia Coleman, Sally Bretton and Mark Heap as the pompous and odd Dr Alan Statham.
