The Bafta-award winning Getting On returns for more dark humour among the bedpans; set in the backwaters of the National Health Service this third series sees King Edwards closed and Den, Kim and Dr Moore transferred 12 miles to a newer ward. Cuts, restructuring and life events once again dominate the daily grind. Devised and written by its three principal cast, the real challenge lies in just getting on with life in a world where few things work smoothly and messy choices are the order of the day. Over six shifts we watch as the staff cope with mounting bureaucracy and shine a light on the everyday.
|1||VideoEpisode 1||It’s a new day, it’s a new dawn, it’s a new ward. King Edwards has shut, B4 is no more. Kim, Den and Pippa have moved to neighbouring St Jude’s in anticipation of a now stalled re-development. Their new home, twin bayed K2, is modern and clean. All appears well. But behind the glossy façade lie the same old patients and problems. And beyond that come a long list of new worries. Kim is barely keeping her head above water, home life for Pippa is no more settled, and Den is about to discover her own brand new challenge. With Hilary Loftus looking for efficiency savings and Diversity cup cakes on the menu courtesy of modern matron Damaris, the staff once again get on with the daily task of getting on.||29:16||£1.89||View In iTunes|
|2||VideoEpisode 2||Another shift, another shuttle bus to miss. The appearance of Dr Kersley and his commissioning consortia plans hints at the changes ahead for B4. Elsewhere Den enjoys her new found treats, nice Damaris has her feet firmly under the desk, Kim makes a bold career move, and Pippa deals with a pressing legal issue. Vag-At research is underway, and Dr Moore has plenty to take her mind off marital disharmony until a nasty online surprise brings her crashing back down to ground. But it’s her cafetiere, brought in from home, that steals the show courtesy of Doris, and a mix up with the dementia care assistant.||29:10||£1.89||View In iTunes|
|3||VideoEpisode 3||Hypochondriacal Mrs Dethick is re-admitted adding to Den’s problems. Kim finds help from an unexpected quarter while Hilary is a man on a mission as the different designations of waste offer him a way back onto the ward. Megan is having trouble drumming up support for the forthcoming strike, in contrast to Pippa who benefits from previously unseen talents hidden away on K2. The lights go down on another shift at K2 leaving Mrs Dethick in the dark, and Den in a dark place. Kim reluctantly turns to Damaris for help with her studies and sparks off an unexpected alliance.||29:01||£1.89||View In iTunes|
|4||VideoEpisode 4||A tough day on the ward. Kim has given up smoking and is feeling the effects, Den has a secret she’s trying to hide, Pippa has a moment, or two, and Hilary is out on the prowl looking for cuts. Matters come to a head on the ward with the arrival of a private patient and the search for a side ward, Dr Kersley applying the pressure. With accommodation on the agenda Den finds herself homeless courtesy of over crowding at Kim’s, and a hapless attempt to bully a solution results in Kim having no mentor and Pippa in a rage.||29:20||£1.89||View In iTunes|
|5||VideoEpisode 5||A few days have passed and the stormclouds have continued to gather. Damaris has gone, Megan is angry, Den is playing games, and Mrs Dethick is back on the ward. On a positive note, Hansley has turned out to be something of a star turn and the Vag-At is going from strength to strength. Or it was until a mix up with the Oncology Christmas card competition leads to complications. A delicate situation needs careful handling as a funny turn with the coma patient has unexpected consequences. Back on Red Bay there’s bad news for Mrs Dethick.||29:03||£1.89||View In iTunes|
|6||VideoEpisode 6||There's a full house as artist Dylan Schwartz and his assistant Elke arrive on K2 to set up a children's art project. Elsewhere Pippa is attracting the attention of Dr Kersley and Obstetrician Dr Tatty Oxford, who in turn has a surprise of her own to spring on Den. Kim confesses that Dave has been offered a job in Iraq, Den ponders her own unexpected news, and Pippa makes a discovery of a different kind. Off the ward Den’s announcement ends in a more brutal fashion with fisticuffs for Hilary. Pippa celebrates funding approval with a suitably open mouthed Josh who has a final surprise of his own to spring.||29:12||£1.89||View In iTunes|
