Bodies revolves around a hospital gynaecologist registrar Rob, who realises that Roger, his consultant surgeon, is dangerously incompetent with a high patient-mortality rate. Realising that Roger is protected by other medics, as his research brings in finance for the hospital, Rob must figure out who he can trust and whether he can speak up.

 

Bodies features cinematography by Nick Dance BSC and was created by Jed Mercurio, creator of Line of Duty, Bodyguard and Critical.

 

Mercurio has said, “Bodies remains the drama I’m most proud of”.
