Prime is pleased to welcome James Nesbitt back to New Zealand television screens as titular neurosurgeon Gabriel Monroe, in the second series of the hit British drama Monroe.
Eighteen months on and Monroe’s confidence ebbs and flows, both in his personal life and his professional. As always, the stakes are high when it comes to brain surgery and, win or lose, the challenge is to pick yourself up and head back into work again the next day. When new clinical nurse Lizzie (Tracy-Ann Oberman) arrives at St Matthew’s the patients now have specially trained emotional support while Monroe himself, still smarting from his recent divorce, may just have one more reason to turn up to work… or not. As far as he’s concerned, if anyone’s talking to his patients, it should be him, not some specialist nurse, no matter how pretty. For his colleagues Shepard (Tom Riley) and Bremner (Sarah Parish) it’s a daily struggle maintaining a healthy balance as they juggle the demands of work with their gorgeous baby boy. Can they make their relationship work or will transgressions on both sides spell disaster?
