Struck Off and Die
Struck Off and Die were a British comedy duo consisting of doctors Tony Gardner and Phil Hammond during the 1990s. Their material drew heavily on their knowledge and experience of healthcare, and took a particularly cynical view of the problems that beset the UK's National Health Service.
Series one covered various areas of the health service. It included sketches and vox pop segments.
- Surgeons - 13 August 1993
- GPs - 20 August 1993
- Nurses - 27 August 1993
- Birth and Death - 3 September 1993
Episodes 1 and 2 were released on a compilation CD by the BBC.
Series two took as its theme Shakespeare's seven ages of man from As You Like It.

- The Lover, Sighing Like a Furnace - 26 August 1994
- From Marriage to Menopause - 2 September 1994

A third series followed in 2000, entitled the Struck Off and Die Family Health Companion. It was broadcast from 29 March 2000 to 6 May 2000.
Both of them have since led divergent careers, with Tony Gardner concentrating on acting, and Phil Hammond in writing, presenting, teaching medical students and general practice.
