Excellent ensemble performances of intelligent scripts
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed MDA for the first two seasons. (The less said about the third season the better.) MDA is Medical Defence Australia, an insurer for doctors. Kerry Armstrong leads an excellent cast as a doctor working alongside MDA lawyers, headed by an ultimately endearing curmudgeon played by Shane Bourne in a dramatic turn from his usual comedic roles. Jason Donovan plays the plaintiff's attorney. Their characters are well-written, interesting, and solidly performed. The supporting cast is excellent. Although Armstrong left the cast part way thru the second season, the introduction of strong new characters played by Angie Milliken and Felix Nobis held our interest. Milliken won an Austrlian Film Institue award for her role. The stories were generally interesting and presented the difficult subject of medical malpractice insurance with considerable care. No black-and-white portrayals of medical practitioners or lawyers. Well deserving of the critical acclaim it got.
