Series one, two and the finale of Jed Mercurio’s award-winning medical drama Bodies are now available as a boxset on BBC Three.
Bodies was the first novel from the Line Of Duty and Bodyguard creator, and made its TV debut on BBC Three in 2004.
The series stars Max Beesley (Hotel Babylon; Suits) as Rob Lake, a junior doctor working under established obstetrician Roger Hurley, played by Patrick Baladi (The Office). It follows the dark relationship between the two, as Lake begins to unearth the negligent practice of his boss.
Jed Mercurio says: “Bodies remains the drama I’m most proud of.
“Based on my first novel, it was an extraordinary challenge to produce, as we set ourselves the goal of making the medical sequences as realistic as possible in an era before visual effects had achieved today’s technical prowess, and we pulled no punches in portraying the murky realities of medical negligence and NHS politics that was groundbreaking then and sadly remains relevant to scandals that have continued into the present day.”
