Press Clippings

The sweary and sometimes surreal sitcom about life among hustling hospital porters returns for a second series. Indecisive gofer Simon is still mooning after nurse Lucy while his streetwise mentor Frankie reignites a feud with an old nemesis (Daniel Mays). But where has golf-loving veteran Tillman (Rutger Hauer) gone?

Porters: preview

Dave has only dipped its toe in the water with a commission of three episodes, but the results from this test are back - and the prognosis for Porters is definitely good.

Steve Bennett, Chortle, 20th September 2017

This new sitcom comes from the brainpan of Dan Sefton, the medic turned writer behind BBC1's recent drama Trust Me, and features yet another character so desperate to be a doctor they will do pretty much anything. Ed Easton is the nervous new hospital porter who dreams of wielding a stethoscope, while his eccentric co-workers include Crazyhead's Susan Wokoma and former replicant Rutger Hauer. Kelsey Grammer also pops up for an irate cameo.

Preview - Porters

This dark, hospital based sitcom from Dave has already attracted some big names too it. It's not that many brand new British sitcoms that can claim to feature Frasier's Kelsey Grammer in a cameo appearance.
