"Blessed with heart and brain" - The Sunday Times (U.K.); "Sharply written" - The Guardian (U.K.). Dr. Gabriel Monroe (James Nesbitt, Murphy's Law) is a neurosurgical genius with a quick wit, and a heart to match his titanic ego. Following no rules but his own, Monroe infuriates colleagues and terrifies interns with his glib repartee and arrogant self-regard.
Pitting his formidable skills against high-risk medical emergencies is only one of Monroe's challenges. He and his team must also navigate the toll that medicine takes on patients and doctors-especially when dealing with their personal lives. As slick as he is with a scalpel, Monroe struggles at home as a husband and father, and at work he clashes with brusque heart surgeon Dr. Jenny Bremner (Sarah Parish, The Pillars of the Earth). With a dose of House's dark humor and an infusion of humanity and warmth, Monroe is gripping medical drama at its best.
Acorn Media, which recently became RLJ Entertainment, has scheduled a May 29th release of Monroe - Series 1 on DVD. Priced at $39.99 SRP in the USA and CA$52.99 SRP in Canada, this 2-disc set contains 6 episodes running 274 minutes. It's presented in anamorphic widescreen video, English stereo audio, and with English subtitles. Here's a look at the package:
