James Nesbitt plays respected neurosurgeon Gabriel Monroe in this compelling medical drama, from writer Peter Bowker (OCCUPATION, DESPERATE ROMANTICS). The series focuses on the impact serious injury or disease has on all involved in its treatment and care; from the patient, to the family, to the hospital staff.

There is no point in going into the details of each episode as this will just spoil it .

Monroe is a brilliant and unusual neurosurgeon. A flawed genius who never lets anyone forget his flaws or his genius. Each episode features one compelling story of the week about life or death situations.

Gabriel Monroe, portrayed by James Nesbitt who can do no wrong in my book. Furthermore, in general the operations and the way the series tells of the background of the guest characters, are done in a very stylish and effective manner. It was also good how the cardiac centred stories were shown in an equal amount to the neurosurgery ones. Also the operation themselves and how they are done are just remarkable, such as when they have to stop a patient's heart in order to transplant it and when a patient is awake during the operation on their brain.

A tiny bit gory at times and laced with a little black humor here and there. All in all a very enjoyable series and any comparison to House is just a waste of time. Two totally different series.

Add to Monroe Dr Jenny Bremmer (Sara Parrish) and you have it. Worth every penny

Sit back and enjoy this wonderful British series.

Back to St. Matthew's. Eighteen months have passed, hospital staff struggling with parenthood, personal relationships and the inevitable daily medical challenges.

As ever James Nesbitt shines as charismatic neurosurgeon Gabriel Monroe, his sometimes highly controversial operations movingly often a patient's last chance. All the while he tactfully nurtures his colleagues - some lacking confidence, at least one with too much. (Luke Allen-Gale's impulsive Springer needs careful steering.) Neil Pearson's Gillespie is around to remind all that money is scarce. Familiar faces are amongst those arriving for treatment. A test of involvement is how much viewers share the elation when things work out, the regret when they do not.

Twenty five minutes of bonuses, cast discussing their roles.

Sadly this likeable series suffers from being a David amongst giants, this David without the ammunition to fell. Two seasons of just six episodes need to be really special in face of formidable competition from big budget medical sagas that go on forever. With viewing numbers disappointing, powers-that-be called a halt. A shame, but probably inevitable.

Welcome here the souvenir of a modest series that inspired amongst fans much affection in its short life.

This is a high quality series, a nice break from the crime shows and reality TV. Any chance it'll be revived?

The surgical scenes in this show are the most realistic that I've seen. The comic banter is what draws me to the character of Dr. Monroe.

Humour mixed with warming stories without being schmaltzy. The cast are fabulous and I cannot recommend this enough. Enjoy the two series so far.

Witty, funny and filled with pathos. Our familiar friends from the first series are a little older and wiser, and a raft of new patients to be healed, helped and occasionally hurt. Great medical drama - pity this is the last of the series.
