    Channel 4 (ended 1999)
    Psychos was first broadcast on channel 4 in the UK between May and June 1999. The series was set in a psychiatric hospital in Glasgow. The Psychos in the title referred to the doctors and not the patients. The previews and publicity for the series were very positive and it was thought that the series would have a cult TV following and a second series was optioned. Then, those involved with the mentally ill began to complain about the title and the advertising campaign. A second series was cancelled, Channel 4 never repeated the series nor did they release it on video. Writer David Wolstencroft and John McKay both won Network Newcomer Behind The Screen Awards for Psychos in 1999 from The Royal Television Society. Fortunately the series was broadcast in other countries. In May 2000 it was nominated for a Bafta award. Actor Douglas Henshall won a Palmare at the Reims Television Festival 2000 for his portrayal of Dr Daniel Nash.moreless

    Channel 4 (ended 2002)
    Top Ten TVwas a spin off from the popular Top Ten series and followed the tradition of the early 2000's for clip based retrospectives. The show featured a different subject each week presented by a celebrity connected with subject. In May 2002 is was announced that Top Ten TV and its parent series would be axed in favour of new programming despite the second series gaining over 2 million viewers (approximately 13 per cent of the available audience). This came in the wake of the ITC (Independent Television Commission) criticising the amount of 'list programmes' being broadcast.moreless

    Spaced

    Spaced

    Follow
    Channel 4 (ended 2001)
    Spaced is a sitcom like no other. The premise is simple enough: Daisy (Jessica Stevenson) and Tim (Simon Pegg) are out of luck and love, so pretend to be a couple in order to rent a flat together. Downstairs neighbour and eccentric painter Brian suspects someone's fibbing, and almost blows their cover with their lecherous lush of a landlady, Marsha. Fortunately he soon falls for Daisy's health-freak friend Twist, while Daisy herself goes ga-ga for pet dog Colin. Tim remains happily platonic with lifemate Mike; a sweet-at-heart guns 'n' ammo obsessive. The series is chock-full of pop culture references. In fact, each episode is themed after at least one movie, with nods to The Shining and Close Encounters of the Third Kind proving especially hilarious. Hardly five minutes goes by without a Star Wars reference, and every second of screen time from Bill Bailey as owner of the comic shop where Tim works is comedic gold. The look of the series is its other outstanding element, with slam-zooms, dizzying montages, and inspired lighting effects (often paying homage to the Evil Dead movies). It's an affectionate fantasy on the life of the twenty-something that's uncomfortably close to the truth. The second series finds the gang at 23 Meteor Street a little older, but definitely none the wiser. Tim's career is hampered by severe hang-ups over The Phantom Menace. Daisy's career is just plain non-existent. There is still a spark of sexual tension between them, but it's overshadowed by Brian and Twist getting it on. Propelling the seven-episode series arc is the threat of Marsha discovering that none of the relationships are what they seem, Mike's increasing jealousy and a new love interest for Tim. That's the basis for a never-ending stream of in-jokes and references that easily match the quality of the first series. Tim has a Return of the Jedi flashback, then déjà vu in reliving the end of The Empire Strikes Back. There are spoofs of One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, Robocop, The Sixth Sense and comedy rival The Royle Family. There are guest spots from Bill Bailey, Peter (voice of Darth Maul) Serafinowicz and The League of Gentlemen's Mark Gatiss and Reece Shearsmith. Every episode is packed with highlights, but this series' guaranteed geek pant-wetting moments have to be the mock gun battles, slagging off Babylon 5 and learning that "The second rule of Robot Club is: no smoking." If you loved Shaun Of The Dead you'll love this.moreless

    Green Wing

    Follow
    Channel 4
    Set in a hospital and from the production team behind Smack The Pony, Green Wing has been described as "part surreal soap, part innovative comedy drama" and follows the sometimes strange, and often amusing, antics of its staff.

    There's new doctor Caroline Todd whose first day on the job is far from perfect. Then there's Dr. Alan Statham, the boring Consultant Radiologist who is constantly being outsmarted by his juniors and who is having a secret affair with hot tempered and no-nonsense Head of Human Resources Joanne Clore.

    To help the staff with any of their problems there is Staff Liaison Office Sue White (who is more likely to laugh at, then help solve, your troubles) and the object of her affection, smooth talking surgeon Dr. "Mac" Macartney who spends most of his time making stupid competitive bets with Anaesthetist Guy "I'm God's gift to women" Secretan.

    Senior Paediatrics Register Dr. Angela Hunter has very little problems, except trying to get that kink out of her boyfriend's ‘perfect' nose, while the girls in admin Kim, Harriet, Naughty Rachel and Karen spend more time talking about their sex lives than actually doing any work.

    And then there are the junior doctors; the confident and sarcastic Boyce and the drippy, useless Dr. Martin Dear who is hated by the patients and desperate for a woman, preferably Dr. Todd if he can manage it.

    Green Wing was devised and produced by Victoria Pile.moreless

    Follow
    Channel 4 (ended 2004)
    Garth Marenghi's Darkplace is the brainchild of celebrated horror writer and self-styled "fabulist" Garth Marenghi, author of such genre classics as Afterbirth (a mutated placenta attacks Bristol) and Crab! ("One of the three best horror books about crabs I've ever read" - Hard Gore Magazine). Back in the 1980s, he branched out into television production, writing and starring in a series so radical, so scary and so downright crazy that when the bosses of Channel 4 saw what they had on their hands, they ran away screaming, like little girls. Only now, twenty years on and amid the worst programming drought in television history, have the station finally allowed the show on the air. Intercut with new interviews with Marenghi himself and his co-stars Dean Learner and Todd Rivers, Garth Marenghi's Darkplace is perhaps the most disturbing vision of hospital life ever broadcast.moreless
