Top comedy writers Ray Galton (Hancock, Steptoe & Son) and John Antrobus (Spike Milligan) prescribe a healthy dose of fresh air and farce in this comedy set in a tuberculosis sanatorium in 1947.


And such is their reputation, they have attracted some of Britain’s most popular actors to star in it: Anita Dobson (EastEnders), Samantha Beckinsale (London’s Burning), Matthew Cottle (Game On, A Perfect State) and Eddie Marsan (Game On)

.
At Edgehill Sanatorium, TB cuts across social barriers and brings together men and women from all walks of life. Friendships develop, visitors come and go, romance blossoms and animosities spring up overnight.
The War may have ended, but Roy Osbourne’s troubles have only just begun. With no cure on the horizon, he’s is in for a long stay. His roommate Brian, an Edgehill veteran, is a cynical cockney whose illness has not affected his appetite for women or food. Other patients include the eccentric Squadron Leader Fielding; know-it-all Norman Tucker and the pious Reverend Padre – no wonder Roy is so gloomy.


The arrival of a glamorous widow is just what the doctor ordered! With her exclusive Fortnum and Mason food packages and promise of romance, life is looking up – until Roy’s mother Ivy starts interfering.


Sharp scripts, unforgettable characters and black humour make the medicine go down very well indeed!
