Dr. Death - US Pace - Peacock (**Spoilers**)

    Based on Wondery’s hit podcast, DR. DEATH is inspired by the terrifying true story of Dr. Christopher Duntsch (Joshua Jackson), a rising star in the Dallas medical community. Young, charismatic and ostensibly brilliant, Dr. Duntsch was building a flourishing neurosurgery practice when everything suddenly changed. Patients entered his operating room for complex but routine spinal surgeries and left permanently maimed or dead. As victims piled up, two fellow physicians, neurosurgeon Robert Henderson (Alec Baldwin) and vascular surgeon Randall Kirby (Christian Slater), as well as Dallas prosecutor Michelle Shughart (AnnaSophia Robb), set out to stop him. DR. DEATH explores the twisted mind of Dr. Duntsch and the failures of the system designed to protect the most defenseless among us.

    Interesting Cast

    Any idea if they’ll be showing this on TV over this side of the pond? Trailer looks amazing and I’m a big Joshua Jackson fan, think he’s a very underrated actor, as well as being easy on the eye!

    Damn, don't have Amazon Prime, nor do I want to get it really.....oh well!

    Darn it, I really hate when StarzPlay gets stuff I want to see. Its the only streaming service I'm not subscribed to, as I don't think its worth the monthly sub. Guess I'll just wait and hope it pops up somewhere else eventually.

    Assumed this was going to be available on Peacock when it arrives over here later in the year but now it looks like we'll have to navigate situations where a Peacock original is only available on Starzplay.

    One of the best programmes I have seen in a long time.

    The performance from Joshua Jackson was incredible and even more so considering the cast, that for me he was the clear standout.

    Crazy that it was based on a true story.

    Watched this over the weekend really good. Found the flashbacks a bit confusing though. Sometimes it was hard to tell when something was supposed to have happened.

    Jennifer Morrison (House , Once upon a time) directed 2 episode.

    I finished watching this last week too, and would highly recommend. The portrayal of the sociopathic personality was so good by Jackson, he deserves awards for it! Really crazy the way the medical system in the US works, where fear of getting sued for bad mouthing a doctor is worse than an actual bad doctor, and ass covering is the name of the game. Scary stuff.

    This was so good. Totally binged it this weekend. Joshua Jackson was excellent in it.

    loved Alec Baldwin and Christian slater too, added a good few light moments during it all

    Have heard plenty of adverts for this and have to say that trailer looks great. Might just give this a go, Alec Baldwin is great in anything.
