Green Wing: Resuscitated

4.9/5

Critic Rating

WARNING: CONTAINS ADULT CONTENT AND LANGUAGE They’re back! The all-star cast multi-award-winning cult hit comedy returns, with more surreal goings-on in the lives and loves of the doctors and staff at East Hampton Hospital (warning: contains very little medical content). Green Wing: Resuscitated picks up 12 years after the events of Green Wing, and it's all change at East Hampton Hospital... Guy Secretan (Stephen Mangan) has become a media personality, adding TV appearances and podcasts to his work as an anesthetist; 'Mac' MacCartney (Julian Rhind-Tutt) has returned from several near-death experiences to pick up as a surgeon, and Caroline Todd (Tamsin Greig) has been making waves in America as a medical pioneer. There have been promotions for both Harriet Schulenberg (Olivia Colman) who is now East Hampton's Head of HR, and Boyce (Oliver Chris), who has been made head of radiology. This doesn't mean that Alan Statham (Mark Heap) has left the hospital - while his killing spree with Joanna Clore (Pippa Haywood) lead to her being imprisoned, his lawyers got him off with a spell in psychiatric care, and he has returned to work under Boyce. Not everyone has changed circumstances, though - Sue White (Michelle Gomez) remains as East Hampton's staff liaison officer, and Martin Dear (Karl Theobald) is still not a doctor, despite having been training for the exams since we last saw him… Starring: Oliver Chris as Boyce, Olivia Colman as Harriet, Pippa Haywood as Joanna, Mark Heap as Alan, Michelle Gomez as Sue White, Tamsin Grieg as Caroline, Stephen Mangan as Guy, Julian Rhind-Tutt as Mac, and Karl Theobald as Martin. Featuring: Margaret Cabourn-Smith, Lauren Douglin, Simon Kane, Lorelei Mathias, Oriane Messina, Will Sebag-Montefiore, Nimisha Odedra and Paul G. Raymond. Green Wing: Resuscitated was created by Victoria Pile, and written by Victoria Pile, Robert Harley, James Henry, Oriane Messina & Fay Rusling. Produced by Novel. Only on Audible.

Patricia Nicol • The Times UK May 12, 2024

"...writer Victoria Pile has impressively reassembled the original cast...The unhinged tone and breakneck pace of the original are replicated, as are scenes punctuated by music. It would be a treat, however, to see this make the transfer from podcast to television."

Fiona Sturges • Financial Times Apr 29, 2024

"Does the series lose some of that surrealness in audio? Inevitably, yes. Green Wing was known for its stylistic tics — frames randomly slowed and sped up — and physical gags, elements that can only work in a visual medium. Nonetheless the writing still zings...If you were a fan first time around, Green Wing as an audio proposition will require some adjustment, though the chemistry of the cast is undeniable and, aided by a suitably cacophonous sound palette, the anarchic energy of the original remains. It’s great to have the gang back together."
