Welcome to the Dark Side....
11 November 2004 | by See all my reviews

Highly inventive and original drama which adds a dark and disturbing twist to the countless hospital dramas that have plugged our TV screens for so long.

An exceptional leading cast show how versatile they can be in roles that may have previously been unfamiliar to them. Excellent new series that I would encourage all to watch as an alternative to other programmes within the hospital genre. Guaranteed to shock and not for the squeamish, it provides suitable viewing for the dark, cold and drizzly nights that are now upon us. The NHS has never been portrayed in such a glowing light.....

I may be wrong, but I heard that the writer used to be a doctor once. Scary.
