Getting On

Have any of you been watching the comedy Getting On (BBC4 Tuesdays 10pm)? It is written by the comedian Jo Brand and others and is set in a geriatric ward. You may know of my love of all things medical so a series that promises medical and comedy is always going to be a winner in my book.

This is cringing comedy. Very dark indeed but sadly very true. And I should know – I’ve visited enough of them to have seen most of the scenarios depicted in it. The awful thing about it is that you know you ought not to be laughing at it, but it is ridiculously amusing.

Probably best not to watch it if you are about to go in for surgery though.

    • The interesting things is that you feel sorry for the nurses as well as the patients. More so, in fact. Very clever script writing.
