The Third Series
Reviewed by Claire Agasee
A commendably realistic drama focusing on the everyday lives of the staff and patients at the Henry Park Hospital, a fictional teaching hospital in the north west of England, Medics ran for five highly successful series. Tom Baker, Sue Johnston, James Gaddas and Jimmi Harkishin are among the cast of this third series; Anna Friel, Robert Glenister and Jim Carter guest-star.
My first reaction to this DVD was one of surprise that I had been sent something so “dated”. However, I soon got over that and can honestly say that I really enjoyed watching it.
The cast was full of well-known faces (albeit much younger!) and it’s not surprising to see that not much has changed in terms of our perception of the NHS.
If you enjoy watching the likes of Casualty and Holby then you will like this with the cast creating their own storylines along with new stories of patients along the way.
My only disappointment was the fact that I didn’t have the whole series to watch!
