Consultant surgeon Sheila Sabatini rules her operating theatre with a sharp tongue and a withering sense of humour. Her dedication and determination to succeed in a maledominated world make her a force to be reckoned with, and her colleagues at the Gillies Hospital have learned the hard way not to mess with her! Sheila's intimidating manner may hide a soft centre, but only those who dare to get close enough discover that; they include administrator and best friend, Joyce, and anaesthetist Jonathan Haslam, a man brave enough to pursue a romantic relationship with the spiky Mrs. Sabatini... Nichola McAuliffe gives a memorable performance as Sheila Sabatini, with Duncan Preston (Victoria Wood: As Seen on TV) starring as Jonathan Haslam. Featuring scripts by Graeme Garden among other contributors, Surgical Spirit was a huge success with the viewing public, running for an impressive seven series between 1989 and 1995. This release collects all seven series on DVD for the first time.
