Infectious Personalities

Comedian and doctor Ed Patrick talks to guests about medical issues

Ed Patrick, Charlie Brooker and Sindhu Vee

A chat show with a unique twist. Real-life doctor, Dr Ed Patrick, interviews celebrities about their medical history as well as their current concerns and worries. With an excellent bed-side manner, Dr Ed offers a funny insight into the world (and hang-ups) of his guests.

In this episode, he interviews Primetime Emmy award-winning writer, Charlie Brooker and comedian and actor, Sindhu Vee. Charlie has a deep-seated horror of vomiting and once ignored an infected insect bite because of his almost fatal devotion to the writer's deadline. Meanwhile, Sindhu is a self-confessed 'full-blown, all-systems-go hypochondriac', and has had a fibroid for so long that she's given it a name
