Concluding second series and finale of the gritty hospital drama dealing with intrigue and malpractice in an NHS maternity unit. A young registrar, Rob Lake (Max Beesley) works under established gynaecologist Roger Hurley (Patrick Baladi) whose record and methods are worthy of question. In series two, Rob finds himself out of a job whilst Hurley is promoted to Clinical Director. Rob's affair with Donna is still strong, though remaining extremely quiet. Hurley's patented close shaves on the operating table continue to give staff cause for concern, as he butts heads with fellow consultant Tony Whitman. Rob starts work for Whitman's company. Accusations of sexual harassment are levelled at Whitman, Donna crumbles under the stress and hits the diamorphine, more patients die and all the while, Rob quietly plots Hurley's demise.
The gripping, darkly humorous and disturbing medical drama continues with more explosive action and emotional confrontations - the personal and professional loyalties of staff at South Central Infirmary's Obstetrics and Gynaecology Department are tested as never before.
Registrar Rob Lake (Max Beesley) finds himself caught in the bitter rivalry between his dangerously incompetent boss Roger Hurley (Patrick Baladi) and bullying consultant Tony Whitman (Keith Allen). Will ambition silence him, or can his sometime lover, Sister Donna Rix (Neve McIntosh) persuade him to take sides? And it's crunch time for Rob's career and love life as he and fellow registrar Polly Grey (Tamzin Malleson) fight over a new job.

Don't watch if you are squeamish as there a lot of obstetrics, red in tooth and claw!
this is the second of two ground breaking series with an astounding finale. following on from the eventfull first series all of the characters are played with brilliant perfomances which leave viewers conflicted between likes and dislikes of the roles all of which have dark and sinister stories behind them
this is a must for anyone. it's better to have the first series but it holds up well on it's own with dark drama
10 out of 10
I have suggested to so many people that they watch this and not one has been disappointed.
Keith Allen is just brilliant and Max Beasley really delivers.
I can not say enough how good this is.
Every time you think things can't get any more evil, they do so you are carried along on a roller-coaster of adrenaline to the final moments!
If I had to rate it I would give it 200%
First Class Acting and First class story line.
