Trauma Editor Review
This is a psychological thriller that has you continuously hooked from beginning to end. Some have described some of the storylines far-fetched, and it is fair to say that there appears to be some fairly implausible scenarios. Would a surgeon turn up at a funeral, and would a father be able to walk unchallenged into the morbidity and mortality meeting held entirely for medical staff on the day they happened to be discussion your son's death? However, despite these highly irregular occurrences, there is something fascinating about the approach the producers have taken. You don't really know if Jon is hiding a failing? Was he drunk on the evening and does he feel guilty. Is that why he went to Alex funeral, or is it just possible he wanted to be kind and respond positively to Dans request? Does Dan feel guilty about not being with him when he was stabbed and has transferred all this guilt onto the last man to be with his son, his surgeon? The intimacy of the surgeons last moments with Alex may be the reason Dan shows a sexual arousal when he has a psychiatric consultation with Jon's wife. Was Dan's powerlessness a reason for his seemingly psychotic behaviour and is it brought about by a system that is stacked against him or borne out of his own personal inadequacies. I have watched two of the three episodes but will have to wait for the DVD to be released next week for the finale. Speculation is that Dan and Jon have a hidden history - what is it? I can't wait to find out! Don't forget to compare prices for Trauma on find-dvd.co.uk and ensure you buy at the cheapest prices.
A gripping psychological thriller with a little creative licence to add to the intensity!
