Episode 1: 999: Critical Condition
Does the world need more life-and-death hospital series? When they’re as good as this one, yes. This is the show that decided 24 Hours in A & E wasn’t quite intense enough, so instead of having cameras fixed to the ward walls, we’re in amongst the doctors and patients (at the Royal Stoke University Hospital) with cameras hovering inches from anxious faces and – in the most upsetting parts – gaping wounds.
Daniel has sliced through his forearm with a circular saw, and we’re not spared the sight of it. Meanwhile, Paul looks healthy and is in good spirits but a tear in his aorta means he could die without warning. The scenes covering his surgery will leave you wrung out.
