Product Description

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.

Synopsis

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Green wing 16 Mar 2011
By Pierre
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
For me, this is the most amazing programme I have come across. The theme tune is so catchy that I find myself humming it. The cast is sublime. The scripts are written with such genius; they capture the weird and wonderful British humour that made Red Dwarf/Black Books/Monty Python (to name but a few)such a roaring success. It saddens me that this never really had the level exposure and acclaim it deserved.

This is not everybody's sense of humour, but it is very worth watching. The arrogance of the medical profession, the insanity associated with working in the NHS are all portrayed in this 'window'. It is well worth buying and watching. If you give it a chance, you will be rewarded.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Watermark in comedy 1 Feb 2011
Format:DVD
I bought this boxed set when it first came out in 2007--and played it to death. Having just renewed my aquaintance with it, my responces and enjoyment is not diminished at all, in fact, it is appreciated all the more. Reason ? it points up just how original, clever, and lasting, the whole experience is. But, it also reminds me how pallid, weak and formulaic TV comedy currently is, by comparison. Green Wing is so original, from every perspective, ie. camerawork to musical support--bravurra acting, to inovative directing/editing. A true watershed in comedy--or in any medium. With it's adult themes and explicit sexual language, it must have caused consternation in some households with mixed age groups, because I know it became a must-see show of cult status with most school age kids.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dr Statham (Mark Heap) tops a brilliant cast 11 Dec 2008
Format:DVD
There is no overcoming this comedy set in a real hospital. I found Dr Statham with his stuttering anxiety and perfectly timed slapstick to be amongst Mark Heap's meister works (so far, he is an under rated comic genius, he is great in SPACED too). Tamsin Greig is wonderful again as Dr Todd, and Sue White slays with insanity and a very wonderful "you can't have that, your too fat" comment. The two series end too soon and the christmas specials are a must. There is so much in this series, brilliant characters, even a peewit would call it good value. Julian Rhind-Tutt as Dr Macartney is Dr Todd's love interest but they dance around the issue in a comic waltz that is the centre of a much broader mayhem of tortured lives..... truly brilliant scripting on so many levels. Get it - it is great.

I can't believe how you can just pick up this show years after and sink straight back into it like you've never been away!

One of the funniest shows I've ever seen, Green Wing brings you some amazing and lovable characters and the ultimate 'will they or won't they' relationship ever!

Surreal, hilarious and heart-warming... this show makes you proud to own it :)

4.0 out of 5 stars Holby City on acid 11 Oct 2011
By Crookedmouth HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Green Wing is a "quirky" comedy series that ran on Channel 4 between 2004 and 2006, consisting of two series of 9 and 8 episodes respectively and a one-off special. The episodes each run for just under an hour and the special 90 minutes.

The series is set in a hospital and follows the fraught and often tortuous relationships of the various employees and their fractured character traits. The series covers a lot of ground and a brief synopsis is almost impossible, but the two highlight plot arcs are:

= An "on-off" love triangle between the three surgeons, Caroline Todd, Guy Secretan and Mac MacCartney, (Greig, Manganand Rhind-Tutt) and the attempts of the monumentally wet student doctor Martin ("Fartin") Dear (Karl Theobald) to break into the triangle and win Todd's affections.

= A rather unconventional love interest between the pompous, stuttering and deeply disturbed radiologist Dr Alan Statham (Mark Heap) and the aging, insecure but sexually aggressive administrator Joanna Clore (Pippa Haywood).

The series relies for its humour on peurile, eccentric, extreme or even surreal behaviour of the protagonists and for the most part it works with plenty of laugh-out-loud moments interspersed with fair doses of "cringe comedy" and less extreme forms of amusement.
