Critical - 24 for Doctors!
Sky 1 will be showing a new show from the writer Jed Mercurio (Bodies, In the Line Of Duty). Critical stars the marvellous Lennie James (The Walking Dead, Lockout) in a medical drama set in real-time in a trauma centre. Neve McIntosh (Madame Vastra in Dr Who) also stars in the 13 part series coming this very february.
From Sky's press release:
CRITICAL is a series about medicine where our team hold a life in their hands but in every case they face the agonisingly real fear that it could slip through their fingers. Lennie James commented: “The chance to work with Jed again and to come home to be part of such an exciting and ballsy project was too good an opportunity to turn down.”
Looks like a good month for Mercurio and for lovers of drama with his Line of Duty series entering a second season as well.
