Quacks season 1
TV show Quacks season 1 is a black comedy about the Victorian hospital on the BBC Two channel. The new comedy of BBC Two tells about doctors of the middle of the 19th century. This is era in which it was possible to come to the operating room with beer and food for a small fee to take a look at the process of amputation, and the doctor’s consultation did not include a personal examination. The main heroes are four pioneers of medicine or, maybe, quacks… Surgeon-explorer, feeling like a rock star of his era. His wife is not satisfied with the situation of the housewife and proves throughout all episodes that women can operate too. The psychiatrist has an innovative idea of kindness toward patients. And always the unfortunate dentist who puts on himself experiments on anesthesia. These quacks will witness and participate in the birth of bacteriology and anesthesia. Moreover, we will see the beginning of a new era in medicine in the season 1 Quacks.
