In Green Wing Special the critically acclaimed hospital-inspired comedy "Green Wing" is back for a one off extravaganza. 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 plays out like a surreal soap opera. The Green Wing Special DVD marks the end of the award-winning show's very successful run.
In this special and final episode of Green Wing, the end is nigh--Caroline (Tamsin Greig) is now engaged to Guy (Stephen Mangan), while Mac (Julian Rhind-Tutt) has very little time to live. Gripped by desperation and paranoia, dwarf-killing duo Statham (Mark Heap) and Joanna (Pippa Heywood) are on the run, jumping relentlessly out of frying pans and into fires (not quite literally). With no-one left in charge, the admin girls let their basic instincts run wild, while something very strange has happened to Karen after her fall from the window. Boyce discovers life without Statham, Sue White spots a job opportunity and Martin feels utterly helpless. Again. At least it all ends happily ever after... or does it? As the mayhem and madness of Green Wing continues, how will it all end for the dysfunctional team of medics?--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

overall, it's a quirky and mostly-satisfying way to say goodbye to a much-loved show.
Despite the moments of comedy genius we've all come to expect, this is actually a very poignant finale to a comedy/drama that truly deserves both of it's genre definitions. Genuine moments of tenderness appear from the least obvious places, and while the end might border on saccharine, there are still a couple of bittersweet pills to swallow.
While not as colon-splinteringly funny as the series it completes, this still must rate as highly as possible simply because it allows a work of art to burn out, rather than fade away. Like The Office before it, this final episode in an emotional journey gives a sense of resolution to the stories we've become inexplicably enthralled by.
And so we are bereaved again, thankfully without the spirit-crushing stupidity of a happily ever after.
Parting is such sweet sorrow.
