Tom Binns plays all the main characters in this otherwise formulaic mockumentary. In the abstract that's impressive, but how it benefits the show isn't obvious: the temptation to differentiate his creations by overegging them all proves irresistible. Tonight, Mark Williams is admitted as a wisecracking businessman, fawned over by hospital manager Susan (Binns) and befriended by chaplain and chilled-out entertainer Kenny (Binns).

Hospital People review

Despite this abject lack of a cutting edge there is something enjoyable about this series.
