New Contemporary Medical Drama

Paul Nicholls, Suranne Jones and Shaun Parkes star in Tender Loving Care, a contemporary and original medical drama set In London’s famous medical district of Harley Street

With an ethos of providing first-rate, ‘wraparound’ health care, the private practice is run by three partners, general medical practitioners Robert (Nicholls), Martha (Jones) and Ekkow (parkes). Each is dynamic and passionate about delivering the best standards of care, round the clock.

Created by Marston Bloom, Tender loving Care features a world in which doctors are with their patients every step of the medical journey – from lifestyle surgery through everyday care to often life-hreatening
conditions. It focuses on the complex personal relationships of the doctors, who are continually forced to make life-and-death decisions, while also trying to find a balance between their work and home lives.

Working-class lad Robert gained his experience over seven years within the NHS and repays the system that trained him by working night shifts in a busy hospital A&E. Martha is the daughter of a Harley Street practitioner, but is a top-light doctor in her own right. Meanwhile, highly trained Ekkow is a skilled plastic surgeon and a GP.

The series also features Oliver Dimsdale as Felix Quinn, Kim Medcalf as practice manager and nurse, Annie, and Cush Jumbo as receptionist Hannah. Special guest actors also feature through the series, including James Fox (Dr harvey Cost), Will Mellor (Joe lacey), Isabella Calthorpe (Miranda Cost) and Leslie Phillips (Dudley Grainger).

Tender loving Care is written by Marston Bloom, howard overman, Andy Rattenbury, Nicole Taylor and Jack Williams. Co-Executive producers are Christopher Aird and Sally Woodward Gentle, producer is Joy Spink, and directors are Paul Whittington and Colin Teague.
