Storyline

1961:-Suave Otto Powell is chief gynaecological surgeon at a London hospital, with his brash junior Richard Truscott about to marry former nurse Jean. Otto and his anaesthetist Charlie Enderbury are called upon to perform a lucrative but illegal abortion, which shocks new nurse Angela Wilson.

Charlie meanwhile has an interview for the chair of anaesthesiology but comes up against rival Dr Mehta and feels he has failed when Otto, part of the interviewing panel, has to leave to help Angela.

Excellent Script and Casting
1 September 2014 | by (Florida) – See all my reviews

I stumbled across this show last night when at midnight I awoken for no good reason and actually somehow my channel changed to PBS which I usually do not watch. I must say I was Very impressed with this show. Excellent script, fantastic casting - it is almost like "Greys Anatomy" meets "Mad Men" because of the time period and the obvious attraction of certain characters on the show that already know they should not be having these kinds of feelings. I am a Loyal fan and cannot wait until this Sunday at 9:00pm. to watch it again. I woke up this morning thinking about "Otto" main character and still am shaking my head at what women back then had to do for love and the image of a perfect life when Everything was falling apart. They truly had to "act" like everything was okay and proper when everything was falling apart. I am an avid TV watcher and consider myself quite picky because there are so Many choices out there now so when a show catches my eye, I know it must be for a really good reason. MUST WATCH THIS SHOW
