Porters | Preview (BBC)

Medical sitcom about the unseen world of hospitals, following a wannabe doctor who starts work as a porter.

Porters stars Ed Easton (Inside No. 9, Chortle Awards 2015 Best Newcomer for Gein's Family Giftshop) in the main role as rookie Simon. Susan Wokoma (Chewing Gum, Crazyhead) is the cynical, self-styled "Queen of the Porters" Frankie, with Claudia Jessie (Line of Duty, Josh) as the naïve nurse Lucy.

Deluded Simon Porter 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?

Porters is written by Dan Sefton (Delicious, The Good Karma Hospital) and based on his own experiences of working in a hospital. It is produced by Dancing Ledge Productions and directed by Vadim Jean (The Rebel, Henry IX, Leon The Pig Farmer).

Porters lands 20th June on BBC iPlayer. Stream on UKTV Play now.
