TV Monroe (ITV1 2011, James Nesbitt, Sarah Parish) Published 4 weeks ago on May 18, 2019 Medical drama series Monroe (which comes from the pen of the always excellent Peter Bowker) follows neuro surgeon Gabriel Monroe both inside and outside the environs of hospital life as he deals with some highly dramatic medical emergencies, tangles with fellow doctor, cardiac surgeon Jenny Bremner and tries to instill knowledge into his weak-stomached trainee Kitty Wilson. Monroe is of course not your typical neuro surgeon, his manner and accent mark him out as just a normal guy however his superb brain does make him a God on the operating table. Best friend, Anaesthetist Lawrence Shepherd provides plenty of amusement for Monroe, especially with his none too clever love life. Meanwhile at home craks are starting to appear in the relationship Monroe has with wife Anna. Creator Bowker says of the series “neurosurgeons are the nearest thing we have to real-life miracle workers, yet they share the same human failings as the rest of us. We want them to be brave enough to take the decisions they take, yet they can’t always be right. We don’t have to like them, but we have to believe in them. Monroe dramatises what it is like to be at the sharp end of those expectations.” Whilst it isn’t breaking any new ground Monroe is strong, high quality drama with a great cast, besides the somewhat ubiquitous James Nesbitt in the lead there are also prominent roles for the fab Sarah Parish, Susan Lynch (as Monroe’s wife) and a guest starring role for Sarah Smart. production details cast JAMES NESBITT as Gabriel Monroe SARAH PARISH as Jenny Bremner TOM RILEY as Lawrence Shepherd MANJINDER VIRK as Sally Fortune LUKE ALLEN-GALE as Daniel Springer MICHELLE ASANTE as Kitty Wilson ANDREW GOWER as Andrew Mullery CHRISTINA CHONG as Sarah Witney LIZ HUME-DAWSON as Nurse Wickens THOMAS MORRISON as Lee Bradley SUSAN LYNCH as Anna Monroe PERRY MILWARD as Nick Monroe CAROLINE STOLTZ as Tatiana SARAH SMART as Alison Bannister (Episodes 1-3) crew Creator And Executive Producer: Peter Bowker Producer: Jennie Scanlon Prosthetics: Davy Jones Co-Executive Producers: Michele Buck, Damien Timmer UK / ITV1 – Mammoth Screen – Ingenious Broadcasting and Capico Productions / 12×50 minutes / Broadcast Thursday 10 March 2011 – 5 November 2012 DramaITVJames NesbittMedical Drama SeriesSarah ParishSarah SmartTom Riley Advertisement advertisement and this just in Episodes16 hours ago Top Gear Season 27 Premieres Sun 16 Jun 2019 on BBC Two New series.
