You'll Never Look At Hospitals the Same Way Again!

In this hilarious comedy set in a National Health Service hospital, confused staff resist the temptation to have nervous breakdowns, while neurotic, hypochondriac patients panic over bogus rumors and ridiculous speculations.

Wearing faded pajamas and confined to a hospital ward, the three paranoiacs, Archie Glover (Peter Bowles-To The Manor Born, The Irish R.M.), Roy Figgis (James Bolam-The Likely Lads, The End Of the Affair) and Norman Binns (Christopher Strauli-Rising Damp, Raffles) are surrounded by inevitable boredom. Feuding over who gets the "daffodil view" from the hospital window, the three conveniently have each other's operations and fight over "girlie" magazines.

As Archie, Roy and Norman re-write major chapters in medical history, you'll never look at hospitals the same way again!
