Enter the fringe world of medieval re-enactment and meet Peter - orderly during the week, ferocious warrior on the weekend.

As he prepares for this weekend’s big battle against the notorious Vikings, a friend in need changes his life. Time flickers, empty hospital wards turn into long forgotten battlefields, everybody fights for their lives.

Shortland Street meets Braveheart in a funny and moving portrait of one of life’s foot soldiers. The Orderly is inspired by the real life of an Auckland hospital orderly, who died in 2003.

The season is raising funds for North Shore Hospice and Mercy Hospice Auckland.
