ITV medical drama Monroe not renewed for a third series
Deeply disappointed that after two series ITV has decided not to renew this medical drama starring James Nesbitt and other talented people. It was interesting comparing the character of Mr Monroe - a talented brain surgeon but a bit of a mess as a man - with the American television series character Dr House (played by Englishman Hugh Lauried) who is also a brilliant doctor but a deeply flawed human being.
I didn't know much about the medical system and how it works in the UK, and if for nothing else, Monroe educated me a bit about it. Plus there was good characters with interesting relationships, although some did feel a bit forced. But this show had at least one more series to it, so I hope people will watch the first two to see what I mean.
