Having been a big fan of james nesbitt's since his cold feet days i was really looking forward to this new drama as the character Monroe (a larger than life, wise cracking, chain smoking neurosurgeon) seems to be made for nesbitt's charming and sometimes overconfident persona and i was certainly not disappointed. Whilst previous hospital dramas hailing from the UK have tried to imitate their US counterparts with their clichéd, overburdened, permanently exhausted staff, Monroe has an edge to it which subtly introduces us to the personal complexities and difficulties needed to survive in a field where the mortality rate is so high. Everything about this drama is top notch from the writing,the acting, to the highly entertaining incidental music. Don't be put off by 'lame' reviews dissing this as a poor UK remake of House. Not only is it almost completely different from House (the similarities ending in it's set in a hospital)it is superior in every way. Trust me give this drama a chance you won't be disappointed.
