What time is it on TV?


Quacks concludes on Tuesday 19th September at 10pm on BBC2.

What’s it about?

From Bafta-winning Rev Writer James Wood, this raucous sitcom follows the tale of 1840s medical pioneers, the mavericks with a will to broaden the horizons of knowledge – but the methods only to raise the death toll.

Who’s in the cast?

The Wrong Mans' Mathew Baynton plays a psychiatrist, Penny Dreadful and James Bond star Rory Kinnear is an arrogant surgeon while Tom Basden (Plebs) is a hapless anaesthetist.
