Green Wing - Series 1 & 2 is a four-disc set featuring the first two series of the critically acclaimed, hospital-inspired comedy. This genre-defying TV show takes and altogether unconventional view of the health service, proving that medical issues needn't have any actual relevance in a hospital setting. Produced by the same team who brought you "Smack the Pony", the series is more concerned with the antics of its dysfunctional characters than with real medical issues, and consequently it plays out like a surreal soap opera. It combines the cream of British comedy actors, inventive use of editing--in which sequences are often sped up and slowed down--and an offbeat sense of humour, to create an unusual and imaginative comedy.
The Green Wing - series 1 & 2 DVD follows the escapades of Dr. Caroline Todd and her hilarious encounters with a number of eccentric co-workers. The assortment of bizarre characters introduced in the first two series include: Guy Secretan (Stephen Mangan), the smooth talking part-Swiss anaesthetist and all-round misogynist; Dr. Alan Statham (Mark Heap), one of the kinkiest doctors you'll ever meet and a man whose affliction is to think out loud (something that the cheeky intern Boyce likes to exploit); the dashing but aloof Dr. 'Mac' Macartney (Julian Rhind-Tutt), whom Caroline may or may not have a crush on; Joanna Clore (Pippa Heywood), the moody, age-obsessed HR Director; Sue White (Michelle Gomez), the sociopathic staff relations counsellor; the hapless junior doctor Martin Dear (Karl Theobold); and the irritatingly perfect Dr. Angela Hunter (Sarah Alexander).
