Australian television, particularly drama, currently appears to be in drought. How lovely then it was to discover "The Surgeon", with its characters moving within a day-to-day structure within Sydney General. Some plot threads extend across episodes, but the central story of each episode was a self-contained medical case.
I found Eve's journey tough and challenging. I liked the naturalness that this series conveyed, the everyday nature of life inside the medical profession. Most of all, I liked that these characters are 'real people', with doubts, personal problems, who make mistakes.
I would love to see another season of this great series, but should that not happen, I'm just glad I got to see this season - and hope to see more from the team behind it.
