Critics Consensus

What Trauma lacks in originality it more than makes up for in gripping performances from well-matched leads Adrian Lester and John Simm.

Child murder aside, I'm keen to see where Bartlett takes this next.

Trauma is not perfect...But this duel between a man to whom all doors are open and one whose horizons are rapidly closing in, is gripping nonetheless.

Mar 4, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

It is a tremendous performance from Simm, who manages to make Bowker's self-loathing seep out of his pores.

Mar 4, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

While not quite as well-observed as Collateral, ITV's Trauma is by no means a bad series.

Jan 25, 2019 | Full Review…

More thought-provoking than you might have initially imagined.

Jul 10, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

As with Doctor Foster, Trauma was just about saved by a blistering pace and an A-list cast.

Jun 28, 2018 | Full Review…

And it's the strong performances from Simm and Lester that give it bite and prevent Trauma drifting into histrionic melodrama.

Mar 4, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

What was best about Trauma was the Rolls-Royce performances of its two leads: Adrian Lester as top surgeon Jon Allerton and John Simm as grieving father Dan Bowker.

Mar 4, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Dan's extreme method of forcing the medic to admit his error made for the most nail-biting TV I've seen since the last Line Of Duty finale.

Mar 4, 2018 | Full Review…

I could have watched acres of this: it still lingers.
