TLC is a surreal sitcom set inside a dysfunctional London NHS hospital named 'South Middlesex'. It follows Dr Laurence Flynn; a neurotic, bumbling, shy junior house surgeon.

Flynn is not very popular with the rest of the staff, thus they see him as an easy target for practical jokes, constant reminding him of his medical and personal troubles and humiliation. With this, Laurence also has to deal with the fact that the staff at South Middlesex aren't exactly what you would call normal. He finds out that his nervy madness is just another face in the crowd of the offbeat hospital.
