This is unusual: a TV drama in which Jodie Whittaker plays a doctor. No, not that one, but a medical doctor.
Whittaker’s character however, Cath Hardacre, actually begins as a nurse. After she sees so many cases of negligence at the hospital she works at she becomes a whistle-blower. The result of Cath reporting her findings to her bosses however is being sacked. Her next move to assume the identity of a friend emigrating to New Zealand and get a job as a doctor in Scotland.
No doubt many people will be interested in watching this just to see Whittaker, but we should watch it for the thrilling drama we hope it becomes.
Trust Me is on BBC One at 21.00.
