BBC Two - release date TBC 2020
Adam Kay's bestselling memoir is set to be turned into an 8-part TV series by the BBC, starring Ben Whishaw (of Paddington and Skyfall fame), and produced by Kay himself, who, after giving up life as a doctor, aptly turned his hand to comedy and screenwriting.
Written as a diary-like insight to Kay’s life on the NHS frontline, we’re given a glimpse into the excruciatingly long and unrelenting hours put in by a junior doctor.
With the COVID-19 pandemic shining an intense spotlight on the NHS this year, a behind-the-scenes look into real life on the frontline, will be top of many people's viewing lists.
The BBC say: 'Kay’s diaries, scribbled in secret after endless days, sleepless nights and missed weekends, tell the unvarnished truth of life as a doctor working in Obstetrics and Gynaecology.
'Whishaw is set to play the fictional version of Adam, who we find wending his way through the ranks of hospital hierarchy – junior enough to suffer the crippling hours, but senior enough to face a constant barrage of terrifying responsibilities.'
