doesn’t heave with belly laughs, it’s more about smiling in pained recognition at the small things about life and death and the NHS. But there’s a proper gut-buster of a gag on K2 ward tonight involving a Christmas card competition among hospital staff for the kids’ oncology ward and an unfortunate guinea pig on the terrible Dr Moore’s icky pet project.
Moore (Vicki Pepperdine) is at her tin-eared worst when she tries to save her skin and later when she has to break some bad news. The woman is barely on nodding acquaintance with compassion and, as usual, she has to leave the tenderness to others. Well, I say “tenderness”, but in the case of wily Sister Den (Joanna Scanlan) it’s more a case of revising history.
Damaris has gone, Den is playing games and Mrs Dethick is back on the ward. Meanwhile, a mix up with the Oncology Christmas card competition leads to complications, while Pippa diffuses a tricky situation. Comedy drama, starring Jo Brand, Vicki Pepperdine and Joanna Scanlan.
