Striking and unpredictable, with pace - brilliant acting
This is an exciting new medical drama, brilliantly acted with very fine scripts. It's got pace and excitement, taking on some social issues but not in a heavy-handed way. It's the best series of this type to come out of Britain and should be seen. Watch out for Niamh Cusack and Martin Shaw - award-winning stuff!
