Graphic scenes in operating theatre
- Critical review by WS
You either get used to it or you don't. Interesting concept - real time the golden hour for a trauma victim. I learnt a lot about the operating theatre and procedures. However, the series seemed to focus more on procedure than character development or plot in these first four episodes and I shall not be watching further. Understand the series was pulled early.
