Malpractice (ITV1/ITVX) [** Spoilers **]

    This came out a few weeks ago with no fanfare. It's produced by the same company as Line of Duty, and follows the same template, but in a hospital environment instead of a police station.

    Synopsis from ITV -

    Dr Lucinda Edwards is a smart, battle-hardened doctor, but we meet her on a nightmare shift that ends in the death of an opioid overdose victim, Edith Owusu. Despite the support of her medical supervisor, Dr Leo Harris, Edith’s grieving father Sir Anthony Owusu, demands an investigation into Lucinda’s actions on the fateful night. Leading the inquiry are Dr Norma Callahan, and Lucinda’s former colleague, Dr George Adjei. While George feels this was an unavoidable tragedy, Norma is suspicious of Lucinda’s behaviour and decisions in the lead up to Edith’s death. As the pressure of the investigation intensifies, Lucinda’s relationship with husband Tom starts to fracture, and her confident professional exterior begins to crack. Is Lucinda hiding something?

    It's very like Line of Duty in structure (Lucinda gets caught up in a sh*tstorm and things spin out of her control).

    I watched the first 2 episodes last night and I was hooked. 5 episodes in total, so it's a quick watch.

    Great plot and Niamh Algar is an amazing actor.

    On episide 4 now tonight and loving it.

    All the medical stuff is very realistic except think that Dr Ramaya would be kicked to touch in a real hospital, dozy and lazy.
