Considering it’s such a bleakly intimate comedy,
attracts glittery attention. It’s a favourite of Mad Men’s Jon Hamm and, in the final episode, Oscar-winner Tilda Swinton has a wordless cameo as the assistant to a preposterously pretentious artist.
Swinton, barely recognisable with black hair, turns up on K2 ward with
a bunch of kids doing an art project. Their teacher is a ludicrous bearded German who announces to his little group, “All human interraction is social sculpture.” He then insists they pester the old ladies, adding, “Bodily fluids can also be part of the creative process”, when one worries about her wee.
It’s a lovely valedictory episode – hugely funny in parts, but brushed with sadness in others.
Kim confesses that Dave has been offered a job in Iraq and Den ponders her own unexpected news. Pippa attracts the attentions of Dr Kersley and Dr Tatty Oxford, while artist Dylan Schwarz arrives on K2 to set up a children's art project. Hugh Bonneville and Tilda Swinton guest star, with Jo Brand, Joanna Scanlan and Vicki Pepperdine.
