A Channel 4 comedy which follows the adventures of the childish and slightly mad staff at a hospital.

Despite a general lack of medical attention, Green Wing follows new surgical registrar Dr Caroline Todd through her first day at work and beyond, starting out as she means to go on - disheveled and under-deodorised having spent the night in her car.

BSG Review:

Fantastic! A refreshing change from the normal as can be expected from Channel 4 who are quickly taking the lead in producing consistently funny sitcoms. Some may find it takes a little while to get into this comedy though because of the unconventional style and slightly annoying fast forward moments.

It is so packed full of funny moments and outstanding performances that it should win you over though - after all almost every single TV critic in the country was gushing about how good the first series was!
