Fantastic drama series strives for excellence and achieves it.
2 November 2005 | by marty8008See all my reviews

The Surgeon is probably one of the most important drama series to hit Australian screens in years. I find it so refreshing and original. The acting is so realistic, the operations are emotionally draining, sometimes electric. Justine Clarke gives the performance of her career and surrounds herself with an amazing cast. And finally we also get to see some fantastic cinematography on our small screens, with color and lighting giving it a cinematic quality and camera work that keeps the show alive. Coming from a family of surgeons I can guarantee that this show has come closer to any medical show to date to give an audience a real look at what goes on behind those operating doors. Great work I look forward to watching the rest of the season.
