Green Wing (Channel 4 2004-2007, Sarah Alexander, Tamsin Greig)

Comedy show Green Wing strung together loose dramatic plotlines knit around a succession of sketches set amongst the medical staff of a hospital wing.

From the multi award-winning team that produced Smack the Pony- part surreal soap, part innovative comedy drama – which is largely set, despite a bizarre lack of medical content, in a hospital.

Tamsin Greig is the idiosyncratic Dr. Caroline Todd; Julian Rhind-Tutt, the fop-haired, wise-cracking heartthrob Dr MaCartney; Steve Mangan the lustful love god Guy Secretan; Mark Heap the stammering, neurotic Statham; Pippa Haywood the tyrannical, age-obsessed Joanna Clore; and Michelle Gomez the terrifyingly unpredictable staff liaison officer Sue White.
