Consultant Surgeon Sheila Sabatini is a force to be reckoned with. Ruling her operating theatre with her domineering behaviour, razor-sharp tongue and withering sense of humour, her colleagues have learned not to mess with her! Driven by her desire to succeed in a male-dominated environment, her stand-offish behaviour also masks a soft centre, though not many people get close enough to discover that. As well as the normal humdrum of daily crises on the wards she also has to contend with a slightly wayward son, her boyfriend and her soon-to-be ex-husband.
Nichola McAuliffe gives a memorable performance as the spiky Sheila Sabatini, with Duncan Preston as Doctor Haslam. Surgical Spirit ran for an unprecedented seven series and was a passive success with the viewing public.
