Getting On: comedy that wipes the smile off your face

  1. It is astonishingly well observed. Sarah and I have spent a great deal of time in NHS hospitals over the past six years, and this has got the tone of the institution exactly right. Long hours of waiting and then potentially life changing/threatening news being given with immense sensitivity by clearly knackered people – in grey places that natural light never reaches.

    We even think of Sarah’s main doctor now as ‘a nice version of Pippa Moore’. Similar in many ways, bar the self-absorption.

    And it has got better with each series. When I’d thought it couldn’t possible get any better. So should they now leave it as it is, or can they reach further depths. I hope so. You end up caring about what happens to them all.
