Monroe - Series 1 (DVD) (English)
Starring James Nesbitt
Description & Features+
Dr. Gabriel Monroe (James Nesbitt, Murphy’s Law) is a neurosurgical genius with a quick wit and a heart to match his titanic ego. Following no rules but his own, Monroe infuriates colleagues and terrifies interns with his glib repartee and arrogant self-regard. Pitting his formidable skills against high-risk medical emergencies is only one of Monroe’s challenges. He and his team must also navigate the toll that medicine takes on patients and doctors—especially when dealing with their personal lives. As slick as he is with a scalpel, Monroe struggles at home as a husband and father, and at work he clashes with brusque heart surgeon Dr. Jenny Bremner (Sarah Parish, The Pillars of the Earth). With a dose of House’s dark humor and an infusion of humanity and warmth, Monroe is gripping medical drama at its best. Episode 1 - Monroe counsels a young woman about brain surgery that could save her life, but risks leaving her permanently disabled. He also clashes with a junior surgeon, displaying his bluntness and prickly sense of humor. At home, Monroe’s wife walks out on him as his personal life plunges into turmoil. Episode 2 - When two critically injured teenaged boys are admitted to St. Matthew’s with gunshot wounds, Monroe wrestles with saving their lives as well as learning the truth about how it happened. His troubles don’t stop there: he also must explain the reasons for his imminent divorce to his son. Episode 3 - Monroe feels pressured to operate on a blood clot in an ex-soldier’s brain, though the sharp-witted doctor is certain it will disappear on its own. A little of the ice melts around Bremner as she takes special interest in an elderly heart patient’s chancy operation, and finds herself confiding in Monroe despite all her misgivings. Episode 4 - An epileptic whose brain surgery might “cure” his religious visions causes trouble for Monroe. The doctor also discovers that divorce is a rockier road than expected, but dating is possibly worse. Bremner is livid to find that her involvement with Shepherd has become the subject of hospital gossip, but she has her hands full with two complex new patients. Episode 5 - A member of Monroe’s team collapses with an aneurysm during surgery, forcing him to operate immediately. His son Nick pushes him to try and save his marriage, although Monroe is unsure how to do that. With their romantic involvement common knowledge, Bremner and Shepherd must choose whether to continue their relationship. Episode 6 - A young accident victim’s dangerous surgery forces Monroe to confront a harrowing tragedy in his own past. Meanwhile, the hospital staff faces major shakeups—including the possible departure of Shepherd—as its trainees learn their assessments. Monroe and his estranged wife talk about their past, while Bremner and Shepherd discuss their future.
