Doctors And Nurses, 2004

No it’s not some adult game, rather a BC sitcom from 2004 that ran for a series of six episodes.

With a cast including Ade Edmondson and David Mitchell you could be forgiven for thinking this could have had a good run.  However Doctors and Nurses was neither a critical or commercial success and was dropped after just one series.


The setting is an NHS hospital on the Isle Of Wight.  The series focusses on the fraught relationship between two orphopaedic surgeons working at the hospital.
