A series for BBC Two from Paul Whitehouse, starring Esther Coles as a community psychiatric nurse and Paul Whitehouse as many of her patients or their relatives.

The series follows Elizabeth into the homes of her patients (or 'service users' in today's jargon). It recounts their humorous, sad and often bewildering daily interactions with their nurse, whose job is to assess their progress, dispense medication and offer comfort and support.

The series is based on the BBC Radio 4 series of the same name and is written by Paul Whitehouse and David Cummings, who have collaborated many times in the past, including on The Fast Show, Down The Line and Happiness.

Paul Whitehouse says "It's a real joy to be working on Nurse for TV as well as radio, and great to be doing so with Esther Coles, David Cummings and the rest of our great team."
