Satirical Blackadderesque sitcom about how friends, family, historical circumstances, and his arch-rival Robert Greene, who first coined the derogatory term "upstart crow", influenced William Shakespeare to write his famous plays.
Dr.Flynn (Shearsmith) finds himself thrown in at the deep end when he gets his first job after leaving Medical School (where he failed his finals). Always the butt of the jokes by the other... See full summary »
I was fairly looking forward to this show. Mainly because it boasts a very talented cast. All the stars have featured in popular sit-coms or dramas before. Yet this program is no where near the likes of "Bottom" or "The Thin Blue Line". In fact its very poor. The jokes are obvious and contrived, while to make matters worse there is canned laughter. On the plus side the acting is good with everyone trying their best to work with a poor script. On the whole this is another dissapointing medical sit-com. Which is a shame because there hasn't been a good British one since "Only when I laugh". There is no chance of this getting a second series. I hope.
