    I think it's unfair to call them bell ends. It's their first day on the job, there's a lot more pressure on them then during their medical training as, at the end of the day, they face the consequences of the decisions they make! I think people have an unfair representation of doctors as perfect when in actual fact they're just people...not Gods. I know it's a reality TV show and you either watch it for the sake of the drama of it all or for an insight into life as a junior doctor but I'd rather judge them on their performance as first year doctors rather than how many nice things they have, which tbh, as besakt said is understandable if you've got the money. I also think these clips will be an unfair representation of how they've progressed and with regards to their characters, the BBC are the ones that hold the paint brush, so take everything you see with a pinch of salt.

    I agree

    I think people (especially on TSR) expect doctors to be perfect as Medicine is hard to get into, when in reality most docs are just normal people and not superhuman :lol:

    Last years JD- YLITH made some of the Junior docs @SGH really really irritated. Apparently it was really unrealistic and made them all look useless. Had a lot of people saying they weren't happy for them to treat unsupervised them for a while until it died down!!

    Not watched it myself but nothing is ever a fair representation these days.

    BBC will obviously be editing it, cutting and sticking bits in to make it as entertaining as possible.

    True. And it is BBC3, so a fair bit of it is made to have them looking like idiots in it.

    :lol:

    Bored?

    Trying to stimulate some conversation?

    I want the weather to warm up so when I walk to school I don't constantly fall on the icy floor.

    Today I was walking to school and I nearly fell but I carried on walking making sure my swagger was intacked. :cool: Then realised some kid was staring at me from his bedroom window absolutely pissing himself laughing.

    Ah non-ruined snow is lovely, rolling down snow hills is even better...apart from the awkward moment when you bash your head on the not so soft floor :P! I find it quite funny snow is the most relevant thing right now aha and I have a chem exam on Wednesday .

    I hate the cold, the short days, the gloomy weather the snow which attempts to kill me constantly.
    Summer on the other hand is awesome, long days, amazing early morning sunrises, warm weather.

    loool , this is all your fault . I can't cope with it being too hot, I suffer on the bus. It always seems to smell like a cat died or something (not that I know what dead cats smell like lool)
