Frankie is a modern take on life and work of a dedicated district nurse whose patients matter more to her than her personal life. A wonderfully warm tale of family, love and loss, Frankie will be available to own on DVD from the 24th June 2013, courtesy of BBC Worldwide.
A heroine for the modern age, district nurse Frankie Maddox (Eve Myles) looks life and death in the eye on a daily basis; her mission is to make a difference. Frankie is an infectious character, she's electric and quirky, absolutely wonderful at her job and adapts to every situation life and work can throw at her as she tries to live in the fast lane and juggle her work at the same time.
Filmed and set in Bristol, this heart warming and funny series follows Frankie and her team as they visit their patients at home and takes a look at ordinary lives, which are often in huge domestic crises. The nurses enjoy their work; it may infuriate, frustrate and even bore them at times, but they turn up day in and day out and wouldn't choose to do anything else - even when missed birthday parties and emotionally neglected kids are the order of the day. All that matters, whatever their flaws, is that they do a good day's work, and make life better for their patients.
