Green Wing - Series 1 DVD 1 of 3 (2004) [DVD (VOBS)]
BAFTA aware-winning comedy series Green Wing follows new surgical registrar Dr Caroline Todd (Tamsin Greig) through her first day at work and beyond, starting out as she means to go on - dishevelled and under-deodorised having spent the night in her car.
Along the way she meets an assortment of bizarre and demented characters including Guy Secretan (Stephen Mangan), the smooth talking part-Swiss anaesthetist and all-round misogynist; Dr Alan Statham (Mark Heap), one of the kinkiest doctors on the ward, a stammering eccentric radiologist who has powerful sexual feelings for Joanna Clore (Pippa Heywood) the moody age-obsessed HR Director. Then there's the high flying but effortlessly cool, Dr 'Mac' Macartney (Julian Rhind-Tutt), whom Caroline may or may not have a big time crush on; the sociopathic staff relations counsellor Sue White (Michelle Gomez); hapless junior doctor Martin Dear (Karl Theobald) and the irritatingly perfect Dr Angela Hunter (Sarah Alexander).
Prepare yourself for a surreal ride through the hospital corridors of Green Wing.
Episode 1 - Caroline's First Day (Aired 3 September 2004)
It's Caroline Todd's first day at the hospital and things are going from bad to worse. She was locked out of her house, she smells like the inside of a taxi, she can't get a decent ID picture (as her hair isn't enjoying a "full-frontal approach") and to cap it all off, she ends up in Guy's flat with a "monster" in the toilet that won't go down. Phew! That is an eventful way to start a new job!
Elsewhere in the hospital, Mac and Doctor Statham enjoy the "banter", Martin goes on the internet to discover if his classmates have ended up with a worse life than him and Joanna Clore has fun with a vibrating bed.
Episode 2 - Rumours (Aired 10 September 2004)
Rumours are rife about what actually happened when Caroline stayed over at Guy's house the night before - rumours which Guy is quite happy to promote until Caroline discovers what he has been up to. Joanna tries her best to hide her relationship with Dr Statham, who is getting more and more clingy. However, Dr Statham is more interested in getting his coat to "sweep and flow" as he walks around corners. Elsewhere Mac finds out that his ex -girlfriend is getting married and Martin goes on the search for his Soya milk which the cleaners have moved.
Episode 3 - Lodgers (Aired 17 September 2004)
Joanna starts worrying about how old is she getting, and also about the fact that her relationship with Alan is going stale and so begins turning her attention to head of IT Department Lyndon, much to Statham's horror... To try and improve things between himself and Joanna, Alan tries to become more spontaneous (with the help of a recorder).
Mac meanwhile, discovers that his ex-girlfriend who didn't want children is now pregnant whilst Caroline sets about getting herself a lodger, though Angela is not a welcome applicant.
