Watch brand new comedy DOA here first

Post categories:

That's right loyal readers, yet again we're giving you the chance to see our latest new comedy here online before it hits your TV screens this weekend.

The latest treat for you is a one-off comedy called DOA, which stands for 'Dead on Arrival', featuring Kris Marshall (you'll recognise him from those phone adverts and the BBC One comedy My Family) and Karen Taylor. They star as Tom and Julie, two paramedics working the night shift together. 

Let me set the scene for you. Tom's working his first shift in an ambulance after being suspended from his job as a junior doctor due to a malpractice inquiry. Throughout the night he discovers Julie's working practices are rather unusual and he's forced to deal with a crazy mix of alligators, sex toys, heart attacks and goth vomit. Not only that but there's a stalker to contend with and Lucy, Tom's uptight fiancee, is less than impressed with his new job. Their murky adventures on the streets of Leeds certainly had me chuckling away, have a look for yourself and see what you think...
