Series 1, Episode 1 - Caroline's First Day

It is Dr. Caroline Todd's first day at the East Hampton Hospital Trust, but things don't start terribly well for her. Mac and Statham enjoy some banter, Martin looks up his old school friends online, Guy eats some coffee and Joanna has some fun on a vibrating bed.

Further details

It's Caroline Todd's first day at the hospital and things are going from bad to worse. She was locked out of her house, she smells like the inside of a taxi, she can't get a decent ID picture (as her hair isn't enjoying a "full-frontal approach") and to cap it all off, she ends up in Guy's flat with a "monster" in the toilet that won't go down. Phew! That is an eventful way to start a new job!

Elsewhere in the hospital, Mac and Doctor Statham enjoy the "banter", Martin goes on the internet to discover if his classmates have ended up with a worse life than him and Joanna Clore has fun with a vibrating bed.
