Bodies.

Anyone else see this? (BBC3 hospital drama)
Caught a late night repeat last night and think it was the first episode, (missed the first 10 mins).
Seemed pretty good, an X rated Holby City.
Would'nt like to be under the knife in that place.

We saw this last night as well and it was quite good. I agree you wouldn't want to be admitted to that ward

The trailer for next weeks looks good and think the series has potential.

I've read the book from which this series was adapted... and indeed... It does not paint a pretty picture of our NHS. Excellent read though and would thoroughly reccomend it.

I've caught one TV episode before and it looked of very good quality. I look forward to watching the thing from the start.

Dno.

Caught 2 episodes of this last night... BBC2 and BBC3... *phew* It's well paced, kind of hard-hitting drama with some wit and stuff. Not nice in places, and possibly not a million miles away from the truth in places, no idea mind. Great stuff.

I caught episode 1 on BBC2. I was quite impressed, as said above, it was well paced and kept you engrosed. It's nice to see a hospital drama in a 'no BS' kind of way. I like way they're not afraid of showing you stuff either, the throat incident was particulaly

Dno.

I watched a few episodes on BBC3 gave up though as not one main charecter (staff) was worth any sympathy. In the end I hoped they all killed one another in various medical cock ups.

Last in the current series last night, I thought the series was excellent to be honest. Max Beesley proved he could act and Keith Allen didn't annoy the hell out of me, which is rare.

According to Digiguide, there is a new series starting this Saturday on BBC3 (about 10pm). Anyone able to confirm that this is not a re-run?

New series would be excellent - the first was quality (if a little depressing).

A new series does start at 10-10pm on BBC3 this Saturday. I knew one was coming and when I read the synopsis it doesn't sound like any episode from the 1st series.

Great news, I loved the first series but I wonder if Rob is based at the same hospital? Looking at Digiguide Keith Allen is still in it so I assume so but the way the first series ended it looked like he would never go back.

Nice to see Neve McIntosh spending another episode in bed.

The effects were very good but as you say not for the squeamish.

New series and it is repeated on BBC2 on Saturday (21:10) before the 2nd episode airs on BBC3.

Great show this. The special effects were outstanding last night - I still feel queazy thinking about it.
Anyone remember the writer's previous series Cardiac Arrest?
