Storyline

Eddy is in hospital with a sore foot and Patsy has booked in for facial surgery in readiness for a gossip magazine interview about a recent indiscretion. They are both very demanding patients. Whilst under anaesthetic Eddy dreams she is dying and surrounded by a glamorous version of her real family. When she wakes up she finds the pain was caused by an acupuncture needle which went astray whilst Patsy's treatment is a disaster. Written by don @ minifie-1

Anyone that feared the show would dip in quality after the first series, would have been ecstatic after seeing Hospital. Eddie has injured her toe, Patsy is having a little work done following a sex scandal. The laughs are thick and fast, best moment for me being where Mrs M reacts to seeing Patsy's new face, the other major moment of comedy gold being Edina's dream sequence where all manner of family and friends rally her during her operation, including Helena Bonham Carter (Saffy) and Mandy Rice Davies (Patsy.) It is a work of genius, that's all I can say, including Lady Penelope, it's so crazy.

One of my top three. 10/10
