Green Wing

Last watched 2009


Caroline Todd has just started at a new job in a new hospital but, heaven help her, she starts as she continues — with a massive faux pas. (I won’t spoil it for you)

The hospital itself is pitted with a variety of eccentrics from the deeply possessive Scottish HR person through to the truly dotty consultant radiologist who is mercilessly picked on by his own interns.


Basically it is like a British Scrubs.

Pros: the show is very funny! The main character is a woman and she’s way more than just the love interest.
Cons: if you’ve seen Broadchurch, you will struggle to see Olivia Colman in a comedy role (she is brilliant though)
Genre: Comedy, British Comedy

Light/heavy rating: 3
Approach carefully if: you have difficulty with storylines about adoption and accidental (unwitting) incest, terminal cancer

Can be found: Netflix

If you liked, I recommend: Black Books, Better off Ted, IT Crowd, Arrested Development, Friday Night Dinner, Brooklyn 99
