Cardiac Arrest Series 1 to 3 Complete Collection DVD

Cardiac Arrest Series 1 to 3 Complete Collection DVD
This was the first season to truly evoke the chaos and black humour of life in a British hospital. It showed senior doctors more interested in arranging golf matches than their patients and junior colleagues; skiving and gossiping nurses obsessed with bedding the dishiest doctors and disillusioned, exhausted junior doctors muddling through on vodka and practical jokes. Both lauded and rebuked by the medical profession, it was soon taken to heart by the viewing public. Andrew Collin, a newly qualified doctor arrives on the wards equipped only with theoretical knowledge and idealism. Soon painfully aware that he has almost no idea how to be a doctor, Andrew has to learn the heard way: performing every menial task, making medical judgements on the spot and coping with a lack of sleep. Andrew's colleagues have their own way of getting by: senior house officer Dr. Claire Maitland is pragmatic and cynical; junior surgeon Dr. Rajesh Rajeh is bedding as many nurses as possible before his arranged marriage and new mother Dr. Monica Broome, a surgical registrar, desperately tries to pass her fellowship exam. As Andrew copes with medical crises, bullying consultants, sexually voracious nurses and uncaring managers. he slowly finds his own place in this mad, traumatic and bizarre world.
