Roaring good comedy
1 February 2000 | by Richpq-2See all my reviews

This is brilliant comedy. The cast is perfect together, and the premise of a vet who doesn't like animals leads to many laughs. Alexander Armstrong is excellent as Nick, the animal-hating vet, bringing subtle humour out of every line he's given. The comic interplay between him and Doon Mackichan (as the receptionist) appears so natural, and is always hilarious. The other two vets in the practice provide the "weird" factor, completing a great ensemble cast. A lot of work has gone into this series, into the writing, the performing, and the sets (how refreshing to see a comedy set in which the camera can actually move around!) and it pays off.
