Tense, gripping, darkly humorous and scarily unsettling,
the critically acclaimed Bodies, winner of the Royal Television Society Award
for Best Drama Series, concludes with a 90-minute finale.
Rob Lake's (Max Beesley) life has changed beyond recognition since he fought
to prevent patients coming to harm at the hands of his incompetent
boss, Roger Hurley (Patrick Baladi).
Now Rob is making a fresh start with
a new job as a consultant and is expecting a baby with Registrar Polly
Grey (Tamzin Malleson).
However, it's not long before Hurley resurfaces – with a police caution, a broken
marriage and the same medical skills – and Rob must confront his nemesis
one last time.
Will Tony Whitman (Keith Allen) get off suspension and Donna
Rix (Neve McIntosh) return to nursing, or will Rob have to go it alone?
Bodies is written and produced by Jed Mercurio and directed by John Strickland;
