The Green Wing: Collection (2004)
Saturday 22nd September 2007
For the first time ever, 4DVD brings together every single episode of BAFTA award-winning Channel 4 comedy show Green Wing in a definitive collectors' edition, available from 15th October 2007.
The hugely anticipated 8-disc box set, containing series 1 & 2, the one-off Green Wing Special and a bonus disc of previously unseen material, is a must for all comedy fans and the ultimate addition to any DVD collection. The bonus disc of exclusive material includes a specially filmed documentary Green Wing - The Phenomenon, previously unseen deleted scenes, music tracks, and a 32-page Green Wing booklet - making this a truly heavyweight comedy release from 4DVD.
Whether you are a Green Wing virgin or already an avid fan, this is your chance to get into the world of this genre-defying comedy which is part surreal soap, part comedy drama and a testament to the fact that filming in a hospital doesn't have to involve any reference to medical issues! Green Wing follows new surgical registrar Dr Caroline Todd (Tamsin Greig) through her first day at work and beyond, starting out as she means to go on - dishevelled and under-deodorised having spent the night in her car.
Along the way she meets an assortment of bizarre and demented characters including; Guy Secretan (Stephen Mangan), the smooth talking part-Swiss anaesthetist and all-round misogynist; Dr. Alan Statham (Mark Heap), one of the kinkiest doctors on the ward, a stammering eccentric radiologist who has powerful sexual feelings for Joanna Clore (Pippa Haywood) the moody age-obsessed HR Director. Then there's the high flying but effortlessly cool, Dr. 'Mac' Macartney (Julian Rhind-Tutt), whom Caroline may or may not have a big-time crush on; the sociopathic staff relations counsellor Sue White (Michelle Gomez); hapless junior doctor Martin Dear (Karl Theobald) and the irritatingly perfect Dr. Angela Hunter (Sarah Alexander).
Devised and produced by Victoria Pile, the show stars Tamsin Greig (Black Books, The Archers, Love Soup), Julian Rhind-Tutt (The Madness of King George, Notting Hill), Mark Heap (Brass Eye, Spaced, Big Train, Happiness), Stephen Mangan (I'm Alan Partridge, Adrian Mole - The Cappuccino Years), Pippa Haywood (The Brittas Empire, Dalziel and Pascoe), Sarah Alexander (Coupling, Smack the Pony), Karl Theobald (Chef), Michelle Gomez (Wedding Belles, The Book Group) and Sally Phillips (Smack The Pony).
