With a dose of House’s dark humor and an infusion of humanity and warmth, the gripping medical drama, Monroe, debuts on DVD from Acorn Media on May 29, 2012. Acclaimed Irish actor James Nesbitt (Murphy’s Law, Woody Allen’s Match Point, and the upcoming Hobbit films) stars as Dr. Gabriel Monroe, a neurosurgical genius with a quick wit and a heart to match his titanic ego. Following no rules but his own, Monroe infuriates colleagues and terrifies interns with his glib repartee and arrogant self-regard. Monroe offers a riveting look inside the high-stakes medical profession (DVD 2-disc set, 6 episodes, $39.99, www.AcornOnline.com). Series 1 premiered on ITV in March 2011; a second season has been commissioned. Monroe made its U.S. debut on Acorn’s streaming service, Acorn TV, earlier this year but has not aired on U.S. television.
Pitting his formidable skills against high-risk medical emergencies is only one of Monroe’s challenges. He and his team must also navigate the toll that medicine takes on patients and doctors—especially when dealing with their personal lives. As slick as he is with a scalpel, Monroe struggles at home as a husband and father, and at work he clashes with brusque heart surgeon Dr. Jenny Bremner (Sarah Parish, The Pillars of the Earth). Tom Riley (Lost in Austen) also stars.
