Joanne Froggatt Interview on New ITV Drama Breathtaking

ITV1’s highly anticipated new drama series, “Breathtaking,” is set to air its first episode on Monday 19 February at 9:00 PM. This three-part production delves into the harrowing experiences of NHS medics during the Covid-19 pandemic, providing a glimpse into their challenges and sacrifices.

The premiere episode follows acute medicine consultant Dr Abbey Henderson, portrayed by Joanne Froggatt, and her team as they navigate the initial wave of Covid-19 patients just weeks before the UK’s first national lockdown. Struggling with limited personal protective equipment (PPE), staff shortages, and an overwhelming number of patients requiring beds, Abbey is faced with difficult decisions that directly impact patient care. Tragically, her colleagues begin to fall victim to the virus themselves.

As the country goes into lockdown, Abbey and her team find themselves pushed to their limits while dealing with government policies concerning care home discharges and inadequate PPE supplies. Despite their best efforts to save lives, they are confronted with heart-wrenching loss and tragedy caused by Covid-19. With winter approaching, a new wave hits the hospital, compounded by the emergence of Covid-19 deniers who challenge not only public health measures but also the resilience of the medical team.

Abbey reaches a breaking point, scarred by what she has witnessed and enraged by systemic failures. She makes a courageous decision to risk everything by speaking out against these injustices.

The cast includes Amber Muldoon as Fit Tester, Bhav Joshi as Dr Ant Vyas, Donna Banya as Emma Mutamba Irungu, Joseph Charles as Archie Williams, Lucy Montgomery as Clare Boxall, and Stacey Gregg as HCA June.

“Breathtaking” promises an unflinching portrayal of healthcare workers’ experiences during this unprecedented crisis. By examining both personal struggles within hospitals and larger societal issues surrounding government response and public denialism alike—the series aims to shed light on the immense challenges faced by those at the forefront of battling the pandemic.

Tune in to ITV1 on Monday 19 February at 9:00 PM for the first episode of “Breathtaking.”
