Surgical Spirit: The Complete Third Series (1989)
Sunday 16th August 2009
Network DVD releases the third series of the wildly popular sitcom, Surgical Spirit - The Complete Third Series (PG), available to buy on DVD on 17th August 2009, RRP £12.99.
Consultant surgeon Sheila Sabatini rules her operating theatre with a sharp tongue and a withering sense of humour. Her dedication and determination to succeed in a male-dominated world make her a force to be reckoned with, and her colleagues at the Gillies Hospital have learned the hard way not to mess with her!
Sheila's intimidating manner may hide a soft centre, but only those who dare to get close enough discover that; they include administrator and best friend, Joyce, and anaesthetist Dr Haslam, a man brave enough to pursue a romantic relationship with the spiky Mrs Sabatini, Nicola McAuliffe gives a memorable performance as Sheila Sabatini, with Duncan Preston starring alongside her as Jonathan Haslam.
Surgical Spirit was a huge success with the viewing public, running for seven series between 1989 and 1995. This complete third series (which also features an early appearance from Catherine Tate) was originally screened in 1991.
