Every second counts in a ground-breaking new medical drama coming to Sky 1 HD.

Critical will be one story, in one place, in one hour - a real-time medical and emotional roller-coaster ride in which every second counts during the most life-threatening hour of a patient's treatment.

Created by Jed Mercurio (Line of Duty, Bodies), the ultra-real-time nature of the drama takes the sense of realism to genre-defining levels, transporting the viewer from the airy atriums of a gleaming new hospital to the inner space of the human body.

Critical is a 13-part series set in a state-of-the-art Major Trauma Centre, a unit which treats only the most gravely ill or seriously injured. Each episode features a new and distinctive case told with thrilling intensity. Whether that patient lives or dies is determined by knife-edge decisions and procedures, but can the diverse team of medical professionals knit together and rise to the challenge? It's a series about medicine where our team hold a life in their hands but in every case they face the agonisingly real fear that it could slip through their fingers.
