Trivia

The surgery scenes are filmed in Europe's oldest surviving operating theatre - dated to 1822 and located in the attic of a church in Southwark, London. In 1962, after 100 years of disuse, the garret and operating theatre were opened to the public as a museum. See more »

Chuckle, Laugh - Hysterical
13 September 2017 | by pete-mcginness93See all my reviews

Best seen back to back as there are threads that carry through. Don't mean to be unkind to those not cogent of the medical, surgical, pharmacy or dentistry references but there's clearly been some research and the result is a side-splitter at times. Eloquent side references to medical/surgical ethics but on the whole BEST satirical and comedic one liners since Blackadder.
