Monroe 2×03

Dr Monroe (James Nesbitt) is still reeling from his failed surgery last week. When he operates on 25 year old Alex Schofield (Gwilym Lee), who has a benign tumor in his spine, he loses confidence altogether and stops the procedure midway. Only after he successfully removes a knife from a rugby fan’s head, he gains his “mojo” back.

Shepherd (Tom Riley) and Bremner (Sarah Parish) decide to try counselling to save their relationship but Shepherd still tries to deal with his infidelty and whether or not he should reveal the truth to Bremner which would potentially endanger Sarah Witney’s (Christina Chong) job.

Springer’s (Luke Allen-Gale) promotion as registrar has slightly gone to his head until Mullery (Andrew Gower) mocks him about his new appearance and tells him that he hadn’t been Monroe’s first choice. Witney asks Springer out on a date but instead of going to a fancy restaurant, they end up at Monroe’s house and poker night.

Monroe (James Nesbitt) has a hard time deciding which of his two trainees to keep as registrar and which one to let go: Daniel Springer (Luke Allen-Gale) or Kitty Wilson (Michelle Asante). Dr Bremner (Sarah Parish) continues to alienate Shepherd (Tom Riley) with her behaviour and suggests counselling but he starts to seek comfort elsewhere while Springer clumsily tries to ask Witney out on a date.

When Bremner and her registrar Sarah Witney (Christina Chong) are tied up in the operating theatre, Mullery (Andrew Gower) takes the chance to remove a nail from a young boy’s heart in an emergency surgery overseen by Dr Gillespie (Neil Pearson). He performs well but is worried about Witney’s reaction when she finds out that she’s missed out on this very rare procedure.

Monroe’s patients are Lynn Monkford (Caroline Strong), a woman with terminal cancer, whose surgery – meant to make her final months a bit more tolerable – doesn’t go as planned, and teenager Shelly Maxwell (Amelia Young), who has a malfunctioning brain shunt. While Graham Birdwell (Martin Walsh) undergoes a double heart bypass, the hospital staff take care of his mentally disabled brother Geoffrey (Tim Dantay).

Eighteen months have passed since the events of the season 1 finale and a lot has changed at the fictional St Matthew’s Hospital. cardiothoracic surgeon Jenny Bremner (Sarah Parish) now has a baby with anaesthetist Lawrence Shepherd (Tom Riley), there’s a new Head of Clinical Services Alistair Gillespie (Neil Pearson) and Andrew Mullery (Andrew Gower) has transferred to general surgery and is now a registrar.

Changing his specialty has also given a boost of confidence to Mullery, who is now a much more accepted member of staff at the hospital and has become friends with fellow registrar Sarah Witney (Christina Chong). Together with trainees Daniel Springer (Luke Allen-Gale) and Kitty Wilson (Michelle Asante), they have formed a close-knit circle much like the older doctors.

On her first day back at work after maternity leave, Bremner is torn between her guilt as a young mother leaving her baby in the care of a stranger and feeling sidelined after being out of her job for so long. Dr Monroe (James Nesbitt) still struggles with accepting all the differences at work, when his son announces his engagement to girlfriend Donna (Karla Crome).

The lovely ladies at Omnia, a free online zine, have included an article about Andrew Gower in their latest edition.

He’s very unassuming, small and skinny and rather awkward, but he’s an excellent actor, very emotive and funny, and absolutely deserving of everything good that comes his way.

You said it Daisy and Nancy!

Exciting times for the young surgeons at St Matthew’s: their training is over and it is time for their assessment. All of them are eager to please their supervisors and secure their place at the hospital. Mullery (Andrew Gower) is also a “cute embarrassment” to girlfriend and fellow surgeon Sally Fortune (Manjinder Virk) who is still in recovery after her brain and heart surgery.

Anaesthetist Lawrence Shepherd (Tom Riley) surprises his friend Monroe (James Nesbitt) with the announcement that it is time for him to move on and find work elsewhere. During nightshift, Monroe is called to an emergency: a thirteen year old girl is admitted with brain damage after a car accident and it brings back some painful memories to Monroe.

Shepherd and Dr Bremner (Sarah Parish) have a long and honest conversation that holds some surprising revelations while Monroe receives a visit from his wife where they open up about their shared grief over their daughter’s death. Despite everything, life goes on at St Matthew’s Hospital after all.

The stakes are set high this week as the patient of the week is not a random stranger but one of St Matthew’s own. Dr Monroe’s (James Nesbitt) main assistant Sally Fortune (Manjinder Virk) collapses during surgery and it turns out she doesn’t only have a life-threatening brain aneurysm but also needs heart surgery and a valve replacement resulting from an infection.

While Monroe and Dr Bremner (Sarah Parish) clash over the best way of treatment, Mullery (Andrew Gower) is plagued by guilt as he is blaming himself for Fortune’s aneurysm: he and Sally recently started dating and the two had sex the night before. Monroe takes Mullery under his wings while they’re awaiting the results of Sally’s second surgery.

Tensions are running high amongst the staff at St Matthew’s and affecting also their private lives and relationships outside the hospital. Bremner reconsiders her relationship with Dr Shepherd (Tom Riley) and Monroe takes another step in accepting his separation from wife Anna (Susan Lynch), much to the dismay of their son Nick (Perry Millward).

After spending the night with Tatiana (Carolin Stoltz), an Eastern European biochemist, who works at tha hostital as the tea trolley lady, Dr Monroe meets his new patient, family man Brendon (Tony Mooney), who believes that God speaks to him through epileptic seizures. Supported by his teenage daughter Phoebe (Phoebe Dynevor), he is unsure if he wants the tumour, which is causing his fits, to be surgically removed.

Dr Bremner faces two very different patients this week: James (Tommy Jessop) is an orphan with Down syndrome and Alex (Harry Ferrier) is a cocky ladies’ man. However the two unlikely candidates bond over their mutual love for computer games, after James states that Mullery (Andrew Gower) is “useless” at them.

Nobody is more surprised than Mullery when Dr Bremner, who is in high spirits over her thriving relationship with anaesthesist Laurence Shepherd (Tom Riley), praises his surgical skills while treating Alex. Due to Monroe’s interference, things between the two new lovers soon turn sour though.

Young ex-soldier David Foster (Matthew Needham) is admitted to St Matthew’s Hospital with a blood clot in his brain after a fall under the influence. Against his initial judgement and to everyone’s surprise, Monroe (James Nesbitt) decides not to operate on the young man and instead waits and sees if the clot dissolves naturally.

Dr Bremner’s patient this week is an elderly lady, Judith Wardin (Bridget Turner), whose daughter is very attached to her and wants her to be around for her grand-daughter’s upcoming wedding. Despite some misgivings about the uncertain outcome of the surgery, Dr Bremner (Sarah Parish) and her team operate on Judith.

Mullery (Andrew Gower) tries to impress Dr Bremner and outshine fellow trainee surgeon Sarah Whitney (Christina Chong). His clumsy attempts, however, are easily seen through by Dr Bremner, who voices her disappointment in him. Dr Monroe enjoys taunting Daniel Springer (Luke Allen-Gale), who has temporarily “misplaced” one of his patients.

The “patients of the week” at St Matthew’s hospital are teenagers James and Danny. James tried to commit suicide by shooting himself in the head, after he accidentally fired the gun at his younger brother Danny and hit him in the chest. Dr Bremner’s team operate on young Danny to fix his heart while Monroe and his assistant Sally Fortune (Manjinder Virk) perform brain surgery on James.

Things are being complicated by the fact that James and Danny’s parents can’t stand to be in the same room after being recently seperated which is a constant reminder for Dr Monroe on the effects a split-up can have on children as he is struggling to admit the true reason for the failure of his own marriage to his son Nick (Perry Millward).

During Danny’s operation it is trainee surgeon Sarah Whitney (Christina Chong), who shows initiative, leaving Mullery (Andrew Gower) at a disadvantage. Mullery’s moment to earn Bremner’s respect comes soon after, however, when he senses her discomfort while dealing with Danny’s desperate and emotional mother, and rescues her.

The medical drama follows neurosurgeon Gabriel Monroe (James Nesbitt) and the staff at St Matthew’s Hospital. The series was created by Peter Bowker for ITV and filmed in Leeds starting on 26 September 2010. The former Leeds Girls’ High School was used as the principal set of the series and transformed into the fictional St Matthew’s Hospital.

The main protagonist Dr Monroe is a blunt and unconventional yet brilliant surgeon who – underneath his hard shell – cares deeply for his patients, who are not only “bundles of symptoms” for him but human beings that he tries to help even beyond the operation table. This, however, does not help his strained relationship with his wife, who leaves him after their son goes to university.

At the hospital he is constantly at odds with cardiothoracic surgeon Jenny Bremner (Sarah Parish), who is usually flanked by her two trainee surgeons Sarah Witney (Christina Chong) and Andrew Mullery (Andrew Gower). Monroe’s best friend at work is anaesthetist Lawrence Shepherd (Tom Riley).
