No Angels
A Work Com about four nurses living and working together in a Leeds hospital. Ran for 3 series.


  • Arranged Marriage: At the beginning of the series, Anji is promised to childhood friend Ajesh, but has lots of flings and one night stands.
  • The Casanova: Jamie
  • Do Not Call Me Paul: Beth used to be Beverley, but changed her name when she left home.
  • Doctor Jerk: McManus mostly, but Jamie and Callum have their moments too.
  • Gold Digger: Beth actively seeks out wealthy men to date. At the end of the series, she ends up finding happiness with a plumber.
  • Hospital Hottie: The four nurses and arguably also the doctors they work with.
  • Runaway Bride: Kate
  • Take That: The title is a jab at The BBC's 1970s medical soap Angels, which. while groundbreakingly realistic for its day, had a more idealised portrayal of nurses
  • The Vamp: Beth
  • Who's Your Daddy?: A slight subversion- Anji comes back from a long holiday pregnant, but the identity of the father is never discussed.
  • Will They or Won't They?: Anji and Callum managed to dance around each other for the show's entire run. They Do, in the final episode.
