Absolutely love it too. I think it's seriously underrated - it's a damn sight funnier than some of the tosh that goes out on BBC1 of a Friday night
I work for the NHS and all the bin bag stuff, data protection nitpicking and talk of 'strategic' this and 'commissioner' that is very true to life, maybe with slight exagerrations here or there. The consultant is one of my favourite characters and favourite performances of all time. There was a glorious moment near the end of episode 4, where Den 'warned' her off lusting after the other doctor - it was so nasty and perfectly delivered that it was just delicious . Comedy with an edge - my sort of thing!
I love Getting On but am not in the UK so have been waiting for it to be uploaded onto YouTube...which it was up to Ep 4 ("just to let you know, he'll shag anyone..." ) It's being released on DVD as soon as the last episode finishes tomorrow (?) so I have got it on pre-order on Amazon. Can't wait
It's comedy gold. There is loads of good telly on at the moment but this is the programme DH and I laugh out loud at (a lot). I nearly wet myself when Pippa appeared with her new extensions like some sort of deranged Samuel Pepys in drag.
