Lead Performance: This Is Going to Hurt


Based on the acclaimed international bestselling memoir by Adam Kay, this 7-part limited series follows Adam (Whishaw, A Very English Scandal), a doctor who is finding his way through the ranks of hospital hierarchy; junior enough to suffer the crippling hours, but senior enough to face a constant barrage of terrifying responsibilities. Adam is clinging to his personal life as he is increasingly overwhelmed by stresses at work: the 97-hour weeks, the life-and-death decisions and, all the while, knowing the hospital parking meter is earning more than him.
