    This is a fantastic and original show!

    Garth Marenghi's Darkplace is a comedy set in a hospital. It has a very 80's sort of look to it and the action, the comedy and the gore are exaggerated a massive amount. But thats all part of the show's charm.

    The central character Garth Marenghi is played by Matthew Holness. It took a while to figure out where I'd seem him before and then it hit me! He played Simon the computer geek who was in a few hilarious scenes in the second series of The Office.

    One minor gripe I had with The Office (possibly my favourite show of all time!) was that Holness's character only played a minor role. So much could have been done with the character Simon. There is no doubt that the actor has a certain comedic charm that is quite different to many comedians today.

    The support characters in this show are equally outrageous. Its a sensational comedy! I'm glad there aren't more like it because then it would become normal and it would lose most of its charm!
