Review

Don’t let the first five minutes put you off. A paramedic, Maleek (Samson Kayo), nearly electrocutes his colleague with a resuscitation device. To start with, it’s all a bit hysterical and silly – but as the episode comes into its own, the pace mellows and the laughs follow. 

After the misuse of life support, Maleek is paired with newcomer, and overly friendly, Wendy (Jane Horrocks). A seemingly incompatible pair, they are forced to bond while responding to emergency calls in south London. The combination of shrill Wendy and the tough-acting Maleek makes for an unexpectedly dazzling comedy duo. If there’s anyone you should be keeping your eye on in the comedy world, its Samson Kayo.
