is a British comedy/drama series focusing on the lives of three ambulance-men and a policewoman, and their roles in a rather truthful (but bleak) depiction of modern-day life.
Stars of the show are: Stuart Bayldon (Rhys Thomas), a Nietzsche Wannabe
who has daddy issues; Ashley Greenwick (Richard Madden
), a private promiscuous gay man who happens to be Stuart's best friend and co-worker; Rachid Mansaur (Kayvan Novak), the new guy who gets to learn valuable life lessons; and Sgt Maxine Fox (Amy Beth Hayes), who is desperate for a boyfriend. She is a very close friend to Stuart, and they're only "friends".
It's based on the book Blood, Sweat & Tea
by Tom Reynolds, a nurse and former emergency medical technician for the London Ambulance Service.
Not to be confused with the American TV series of the same name that ran between 1993 and 1995 or the American remake
airing on USA Network.
