The BBC is brining back medical drama Trust Me with a brand new cast and story.
The first series, which was shown last summer, starred new Doctor Who Jodie Whittaker as a doctor with a secret.
Series two will move to a new story focussed on Captain James (Jamie) McKay, the sole survivor of a shock enemy attack on tour in Syria.
Recovering from a spinal injury which has left him barely able to move and battling the psychological scars from losing his friends, he faces a new enemy as people on the ward die unexpectedly around him. But is the threat real, or imagined?
Writer and NHS doctor Dan Sefton (Delicious, Porters and The Good Karma Hospital) said: “I’m absolutely thrilled to be working on a new series of Trust Me for the BBC.
“The support the project received from both BBC Drama and BBC Scotland made it a hugely enjoyable process.
“It’s also fantastic to be working with Red Production Company and Nicola Shindler again – a company that makes some of the best drama this country produces. This follow up series will bring the same tension and twists of the original show to a brand new medical arena.”
Nicola Shindler, founder of series producers Red Production Company said: “Dan’s personal experience working in the medical profession combined with his exceptional writing, make the second series of Trust Me every bit as compelling as the first.
“The complexity of his characters, on the surface every day medics and patients, combined with the darkly twisting storyline will keep viewers hooked.”
Piers Wenger, Controller of BBC Drama, added: “The first series of Trust Me broke new ground for medical drama and I’m delighted to be welcoming it back for a second run with a completely fresh cast and a shocking new story, which is set to become as big a talking point as the first.”
