Dr Death (2021) miniseries review

Disturbing, confronting, real life is indeed stranger than fiction. The way this show is made, the slow boil which tests every sense of yours, is a dark genius to be applauded.

Based on a true story which gave birth to a very popular podcast and then this show, it’s the tale of a surgeon, Christopher Duntsch and his precarious medical career.

The 8 episode miniseries slowly crafts the tale of his journey, relationships, mentors, colleagues, delusions, narcissist and sociopath sides. When we see the medical system and how such people can flourish instead of be held accountable, it sends shivers down your spine.

An uncomfortable education delivered by great acting talents, Joshua Jackson, Alec Baldwin and Christian Slater.
