We present current series highlights at Sky – in addition to well-known long-running favorites, we also take a look at upcoming new releases. “Temple” is a medical drama and crime series in one.
After a personal tragedy, the successful surgeon Daniel Milton (Mark Strong) and the grumpy tunnel worker Lee (Daniel Mays) found an illegal clinic in the catacombs of the London Underground. There he treats criminals, illegal immigrants, but also destitute homeless people, in short all those who cannot or do not want to afford official medical care.
Soon the researcher Anna Willems (Carice van Houten), his ex-lover, joins in to support Daniel. The team, which is sometimes extremely dangerous, poses enormous challenges for the team. Daniel has to expect hourly that his secret clinic is exposed. But the good doctor also has a completely different mission and soon has to find out that this is far more dangerous than the illegal treatment of criminal patients.
Black humor, rapid, but also sensitive: “Temple” is a gripping mix of medical drama and crime series and leads into the dark, oppressive underworld of London. The British Sky Original is based on the Norwegian series “Valkyrien”. Mark Strong, who is also the main actor and executive producer, says: “With Daniel, author and producer Mark O’Rowe has created a complex and multifaceted character that has to cross boundaries again and again after his world has gone radically out of joint. “Temple” is a gripping story about human morality in our time. “
The Sky Original series is a production by Hera Pictures, Liza Marshall, Mark Strong and Mark O’Rowe act as producers, the producers on the part of Sky are Gabriel Silver and Anne Mensah.
