A British "medical" drama with a mixture of comedy, bizarre soap opera and pure absurdity that would make Scrubs blush. The series was notable for being filmed in a real-live hospital (with genuine patients and doctors as extras), the plot rarely ever touched actual medicine or patient storylines in favor of focusing on the surgeons playing games mid-operations, the love dodecahedron the staff are trapped in, and the misadventures of the HR department. It was nominated for several awards, including 2 BAFTAs, and won "Comedy of the Year" in 2006.

My mum, who is a wonderfully off kilter, introduced this show to me when it first aired and it quickly became must see. I remember fondly driving to my parents place so we could share the total randomness that is Green Wing.

Between this, Big Train, Smack the Pony, Jam and Coupling we found so much wonderful talent.

Tamsin Greig went on to star in the sublime Black Books and most recently in Episodes along with co-star Stephen Mangan [worth a look]

Sarah Alexander is gorgeous and sadly absent from our screens far too long. Michelle Gomez is equally missed as her character Sue White is truly inspired.

Rediscovering this series again has been a delight and trips back to my Mum's to watch them all over again have been fantastic :)

Beyond Ninja!
