Bodies’ is not about glamorous, heroic doctors and nurses, but about real people doing a sometimes impossible job. From his own novel, writer-producer Jed Mercurio has created a ground-breaking series which blows the whistle on NHS cover-ups.

Laced with action, scandal and sex, yet complex in its handling of moral dilemmas, this is a uniquely visceral and compelling view of hospital life. Rich in dark humour, this is not a medical drama as we know it.
