Series: Getting On

Getting On (2009-) is a British sitcom set in a hospital ward a million miles away from Princeton General. Situated right at the wrong end of the Sliding Scale of Shiny Versus Gritty, the series is centered on a general ward and the unglamorous lives of its long-suffering staff. The series is written by its three female leads: Jo Brand as Nurse Kim Wilde, Joanna Scanlan as Sister Den Flixter, and Vicki Pepperdine as Dr Pippa Moore. The show is intended to be a realistic portrayal of hospital life with naturalistic dialogue and shaky camera movements. Its director Peter Capaldi may have learned a few tricks from his time working with Armando Iannucci on The Thick of It.

Kim has returned to nursing after some time away, and is struggling to cope with the changes the National Health Service has been through in the meantime. New regulations stop her from providing good old-fashioned patient care and constantly throw up problems, not least of which is the oversensitive Matron Hilary Loftus.
