Review

As the second episode of this tart little anti-comedy begins, inept doctor Pippa (Vicki Pepperdine) is lost in a pod of isolation. Her husband has left her and her precious female genitalia project is in jeopardy.

Poor, emotionally illiterate Pippa; she is dismissive of everyone while being hollow with loneliness. Her colleagues Den and Kim (Joanna Scanlan and Jo Brand) laugh behind her back as they try to kick holes in the thick walls of NHS bureaucracy. For Den, this means changing her plans now she knows that pregnant staff members are entitled to a free fridge for expressed breast milk.

Summary

The appearance of Dr Kersley and his commissioning consortia plans hints at big changes for K2, and while Den enjoys her new-found treats, Kim makes a bold career move. Pippa deals with a pressing legal issue, and Dr Moore forgets her troubles by absorbing herself into her work - until a nasty surprise forces to confront them. Starring Jo Brand, Joanna Scanlan and Vicki Pepperdine.
