Deluded Simon dreams of passing his medical exam and becoming a doctor – but by starting at the bottom, and becoming the best porter the NHS has ever seen.
All he has to do is survive a few months grafting in a hospital basement and try not to kill any of the patients. How hard can that be?...
Rutger plays 'Tillman', a porter and former golfing prodigy who teaches newbie Simon about the ways of the hospital, manhood, karma, and most importantly, love.
Writer Dan Sefton says: "I'm astonished and honoured that a genuine movie legend has agreed to take part in a sitcom written by an idiot. None of us are worthy, especially me. It's quite surreal but utterly amazing to go from watching someone on screen as a kid, to chatting about your script with them in Costa Coffee."
In 2018, UKTV's Dave confirmed that the hospital-set sitcom returns later in the year for six more episodes. The new episodes are again written by Dan Sefton.
