Following on from the huge success of series one, the second series of the BAFTA award-winning Channel 4 comedy show Green Wing is released on DVD. Available from 2nd October 2006, the complete Green Wing Series 2 features all eight episodes plus 100 minutes of exclusive DVD extras.

To coincide with the release of Green Wing Series 2, the Green Wing Boxset is also released on 2nd October (£44.99). The boxset features series 1 and 2 in their entirety plus all additional extra’s and bonus material.

From the award-winning team behind Smack the Pony, this genre-defying comedy continues to prove that filming in a hospital doesn’t have to involve any reference to medical issues. Part surreal soap, part comedy drama, its characters now face the unenviable task of clearing up the mess they left behind at the end of series one.

The same ensemble cast are in place for more brilliantly observed, sophisticated mayhem. Tamsin Greig (Black Books, The Archers) is the idiosyncratic Dr. Caroline Todd; Julian Rhind-Tutt, (The Madness of King George, Notting Hill), the fop-haired, wise-cracking heartthrob Dr MaCartney; Steve Mangan (Confetti, I’m Alan Partridge, Adrian Mole – The Cappuccino Years) the lustful love god Guy Secretan; Mark Heap (Brass Eye, Spaced, Big Train, Happiness) as the stammering, neurotic Statham; Pippa Haywood (The Brittas Empire, Dalziel and Pascoe) the tyrannical, age-obsessed Joanna Clore; Michelle Gomez (The Book Group) the terrifyingly unpredictable staff liaison officer Sue White; Karl Theobald (Chef) the endearing failure Martin Dear; the bumbling Harriet, Olivia Coleman (Peep Show) and Oliver Chris, Dr Statham’s nemesis student, Boyce. Green Wing Series 2 also stars Sally Phillips and Sarah Alexander from the hit comedy sketch show, Smack The Pony.


Green Wing is a TalkbackTHAMES production, devised and produced by Victoria Pile. The series boasts a collection of award-winning writers including Victoria Pile, Robert Harley (Smack the Pony, Los Dos Bros), Oriane Messina and Fay Rusling (2DTV, Smack the Pony), Gary Howe and Richard Preddy (Birds of a Feather, Shooting Stars), James Henry (Smack the Pony, Aardman Sketch Show) and Stuart Kenworthy (Smack the Pony, Harry Hill's TV Burp).

I know why can't there ever be a manchester signing? I mean it's a big enough place. OR even better a London and manchester signing so the northerners don't miss out. I always seem to be so unlucky when it comes to signings.
