Just when he thinks things couldn't get worse, Daniel (Rupert Grint), a compulsive liar stuck in a failing relationship and a dead-end job, is diagnosed with esophageal cancer. Things start to look up, however, when everyone starts to treat him better after his diagnosis, and he finds his zeal for life renewed. Unfortunately, he's got the most incompetent oncologist in the world Dr. lain Glennis (Nick Frost) and finds out his cancer was misdiagnosed. Now he's faced with the moral dilemma of coming clean and returning to his mundane and tiresome existence or milking the original diagnosis for all it's worth which includes coercing his doctor into collaborating the lie.
An Abominable and Tasteless attempt at comedy
- Sick Note: Series 1 review by AS
One can suppose that there are some people who watched this series and enjoyed the non-stop foul language and sewer-level characters who lie, cheat and deceive each other with ever greater intensity, but this household was not among them. What a waste of potentially good acting talent.
