ITV’s medical thriller “Malpractice” is set to return with a second series, introducing new faces while welcoming back familiar ones.

Helen Behan and Jordan Kouamé reprise their roles as Dr. Norma Callahan and Dr. George Adjei, members of the Medical Investigation Unit (MIU), who find themselves investigating a doctor facing malpractice allegations.

Tom Hughes joins the cast as Dr. James Ford, a psychiatric registrar with a difference. Based in a North Yorkshire hospital, Dr. Ford navigates a personal life in turmoil, his arrogance noted by colleagues, yet his dedication to his vulnerable patients cannot be faulted.
