The character of Hospital Management figure Paul Tennant OBE, latterly Sir Paul Tennant (as he appears in the feature length finale) originally appeared in the script writer Jed Mercurio's previous medical drama Cardiac Arrest from series 2 in 1995. On both occasions he was played by Nicholas Palliser. See more »
We are watching this BBC drama now and have two more episodes to go. It is excellent! Max Beesley is superb and the series itself is compelling if a bit on the "oh my God, I can't believe they are showing that on TV" side. It is a very realistic portrayal of an intern or new resident in a private British hospital. The attitudes of the management and some of the staff are inexplicable and I hope they are an exaggeration of fact. The sex scenes are more explicit then anything I've ever seen on regular cable in the U.S. and it is better than ER at making the surgeries realistic - definitely not for the squeamish. Although very disturbing, it is worth watching. Every minute is filled with intensity.
