Trauma (ITV 2018, John Simm, Adrian Lester)


Three part psychological thriller sees the world of Dan Bowker collapsing following the murder of his fifteen year old son Alex in a stabbing incident. Alex actually dies in the trauma room of the hospital he is taking too and Dan is convinced that consultant Jon Allerton is to blame for his death.

As he strives for what he believes is justice, Dan begins to unpick the very fabric of Jon's life as his own unravels in the wake of Alex’s killing.

Trauma is an intricate, fast-paced thriller that questions what makes a man good and explores what happens when the very institutions established to protect us and those who represent them, let us down.

Aired from 12-14 February 2018.
