Wrapped up 'Dr. Death' on Peacock. Another super solid limited series. Both compelling and terrifying. Based on the true story of Christopher Duntsch, the Dallas area neurosurgeon who injured, paralyzed, or killed 33 of his 38 patients in a span of two years between 2012 and 2014. He was one of the first physicians to be convicted on criminal charges for his medical procedures....since the standard of proof to convict a doctor is so high.
Moves at a really good pace and held my attention throughout. Just astonishing that due to how the hospitals work, and how much money runs through them, this guy had all of these massive red flags from his god complex to his string of botched surgeries....one after another.....and he was still able to easily move from hospital to hospital hurting and killing people while his issues were buried. Really took a sharp stick to these Dallas area hospitals throughout the run.....which is completely warranted. Makes you wonder why nobody else involved could have been held criminally negligent.
Alec Baldwin and Christian Slater are both great as always....playing other doctors that come across Duntsch's path and end up working to help the district attorney with the case to put him in jail. They also executive produced the show. Joshua Jackson plays Christopher Duntsch. I was already a fan of his because of the excellent show Fringe. He's terrific. Another high recommendation.
