Currently we have multiple titles about medical dramas, where they stand out Grey’s Anatomy, New Amsterdam and The Good Doctor. This latest series, starring Eddie Highmore, tells how a doctor with autism performs in a great way to save lives, something that will be completely different in Doctor Death, next release of Starz Play in Latin America.
This thriller is based on the terrifying true story about Dr. Christopher Duntsch, who is currently serving a life sentence after being convicted of mutilating one of his patients and injuring 33 others, of whom two died and two others need wheelchairs due to loss of mobility. “A seemingly brilliant young neurosurgeon with a thriving medical practice. But all is not as it seems”, notes its official synopsis.
The inception of this production began in October 2018 when NBCUniversal announced that the story, which was previously adapted into a podcast, was to be turned into a television series, with Todd Black, Jason Blumenthal and Steve Tisch serving as executive producers. Over time, more important members were confirmed and finally premiered on July 15 on the Peacock streaming service in the United States.
The reception from the press has been favorable, as Rotten Tomatoes gave it an approval of 85% and in Metacritic it has a rating of 77 out of 100, according to ten reviews. Opinions are generally positive, like that of Entertainment Weekly: “The what and the how are heartbreaking enough. Dr. Death succeeds in targeting the people who fought for years to make sure Christopher Duntsch couldn’t do any more damage.”.
+ When does Doctor Death premiere on Starz Play?
