Hospital People: The Complete Series 1 on DVD [read more]
Getting better all the time
Comedian Tom Binns stars in multiple roles in this sharply scripted BBC mockumentary following the lives of non-medical staff at a fictional NHS hospital trust - none of whom have any business haunting the corridors of a hospital...
Binns plays tragically inept, relentlessly upbeat hospital radio DJ Ivan Brackenbury ('the cheerful earful'), chaplain, devout Liverpudlian and misplaced comic Father Kenny Mercer, and porter and self-styled psychic healer Ian D. Montfort; a motley band of misfits working at the Brimlington Royal Infirmary and presided over by megalomaniac manager Susan Mitchell (also played by Binns).
Co-produced by Ash Atalla (The Office, Trollied) Hospital People includes guest turns from Russell Brand, Mark Williams, Alex Macqueen and Sally Phillips; this set features all six episodes.
Hospital People: The Complete Series 1 (15) is available on DVD on 30 October 2017, RRP £14.99, courtesy of Network Distributing.
