Dave’s Advent Calendar will feature a large roster of top comedians including Romesh Ranganathan (Judge Romesh), Kerry Godliman (Bad Move), Sally Phillips (Bridget Jones), Josh Widdicombe (The Last Leg), Natasia Demetriou (Stath Lets Flats) and Jon Richardson (8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown).
Porters follows deluded Simon Porter, played by Ed Easton (Inside No. 9), who dreams of passing his medical exam, but he sees his way of making it as a doctor by starting at the bottom as a porter in a hospital and working his way up.
Porter joins the cynical Frankie (Susan Wokoma - Chewing Gum), a self-proclaimed 'Queen of the Porters', and naive nurse Lucy played by Claudia Jessie (Line of Duty).
Writer Dan Sefton (Delicious, The Good Karma Hospital) based Porters on his own experiences working in a hospital.
