Classic and contemporary original drama and book dramatisations

An offbeat comic drama series by Ben Cottam following the experiences of Latvian locum Dr Dace Zake - mistakenly hired in the belief she speaks Polish - in a beleaguered medical centre in the deprived South Shore area of Blackpool.

It's Dr Dace Zake's first day working at the medical centre. She's late, which incurs the wrath of Jan the receptionist and she encounters a man throwing up into a carrier bag outside the surgery. Not a good start to the day.
