The Green Wing Complete Collection DVD is an 8-disc box set containing the "Green Wing Series 1" and "Green Wing Series 2" DVDs, the "Green Wing Special" DVD, plus the previously unseen "Green Wing The Phenomenon Documentary". In addition to this extra features include deleted scenes, audio commentary with the cast and crew, behind-the-scenes featurettes, and biographies. Produced by the team who brought you "Smack the Pony", Green Wing is more concerned with the antics of its dysfunctional characters than with actual medical issues. 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.
Proving that there is more to hospitals than just disinfectant and dysentery, Green Wing takes an altogether unconventional view of the health service. "Green Wing - Series 1" follows the exploits of Dr. Caroline Todd (Tamsin Greig) and her hilarious encounters with a number of eccentric co-workers. The assortment of bizarre characters she meets includes: Guy Secretan (Stephen Mangan), the smooth talking part-Swiss anaesthetist and all-round misogynist; Dr. Alan Statham (Mark Heap), possibly one of the kinkiest doctors on the ward and a man whose affliction is to think out loud (something that the cheeky intern Boyce likes to exploit quite frequently); 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). In Series 2, Dr. Todd and her crew of quirky co-workers return to face the unenviable task of clearing up the mess they left behind at the end of series one.
