What is Temple about?

Written by Irish playwright Mark O’Rowe, Temple is the story of Daniel Milton (Mark Strong), “a talented surgeon whose world is turned upside-down when his wife, played by Catherine McCormack, develops a life-threatening illness.”

When conventional options for treatment run out, Daniel refuses to accept the prognosis and give up. Instead, he partners with the “obsessive yet surprisingly resourceful misfit Lee” (Daniel Mays) – and together they start a literal “underground” clinic in the vast network of tunnels beneath Temple tube station in London.

According to Sky, “they are soon joined by Anna (Carice Van Houten), a guilt-ridden medical researcher whose past is entangled with Daniel’s, and Jamie, played by Tobi King Bakare (Cursed), a young fugitive bank-robber.

“Daniel does his best to juggle this dysfunctional family as his moral boundaries between being a husband, friend and doctor are challenged. But it soon becomes apparent that it may be him and his desperate actions that finally bring the whole thing crashing down. Just how far will Daniel Milton go for love?”
