Andrew El Bardissi,
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 »
There is another series coming of Bodies later this year I believe. i too wondered why it was on BBC2 and not BBC1 and apparently it's too graphic for BBC1. It is scary but it was indeed written by a real doctor, I read an interview and he said everything on there is true. I think the writing is brilliant and the acting is too. Especially Max Beesley. I haven't heard or read one criticism about this drama, its by far the best medical drama on TV because it is shot as though it's a documentary. And being written by someone actually in the profession makes it spot on. I would recommend this to anyone, except the squeamish - the prosthetics are superb.
