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. Asslick 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.
