Mark Strong stars as Daniel Milton, a talented and successful surgeon. Following a personal tragedy (dying wife) that shatters his comfortable life, Daniel partners up with a lonely yet resourceful man named Lee to start a literal 'underground' clinic, situated in the vast labyrinthine network of tunnels and spaces beneath London (Temple Station).
There Daniel treats all those who cannot, or will not, seek more legitimate means of healthcare: criminals, illegal immigrants. Daniel and Lee are soon joined in the bunker by Anna, a guilt-ridden medical researcher, and Jamie, a young fugitive bank robber who's in way over his head.
The good doctor must do his best to juggle this misfit team and their needs alongside those of an illegal clinic and its increasingly unpredictable clientele.
Based on Nordic drama - Valkyrien
Manhunt is a gripping mini-series based on the true story of a murder investigation that kept the people of Britain on the edge their seats and defined a detective’s career. Starring Martin Clunes (Doc Martin) as DCI Colin Sutton, the story begins in August 2004 when a young woman’s body is found.
Sutton is appointed senior investigating officer, but initially struggles: there’s no forensics, motive or witnesses. Painstaking detective work finally delivers a suspect – Levi Bellfield. But now the hunt is on for enough evidence to arrest him and make sure he’s found guilty at trial.
Manhunt follows the compelling story of how DCI Sutton charged one of Britain’s most notorious killers with two murders, as well as an attempted murder, whilst also impelling Surrey police to consider Bellfield as prime suspect in the high-profile murder of Milly Dowler.
