Masterpiece Episode: "Innocents"

Season 31, Episode 18
Episode Synopsis: “Innocents,” a docudrama charting a disturbingly high mortality rate among pediatric cardiac patients at one British hospital in the 1990s. The reason: incompetent surgeons. But mothers Julie Johnson and Sharon Peacock (Kate Redshaw, Emma Cunniffe) don't know that when they entrust their young sons to Drs. Janarda Dhasmana (Madhav Sharma) and James Wishart (Tim Piggott-Smith), the imperious surgical chief. Anesthesiologist Steve Bolsin (Aden Gillett) suspects a problem. Trouble is, he doesn't have nearly as much clout as Wishart does.

Premise: PBS's longest running (and most honored) dramatic series is an Anglophile's delight, featuring British adaptations of literary classics and original works. The first `Masterpiece' was `The First Churchills,' and since then it has won nine Peabodys and 29 Emmys (beginning with Susan Hampshire's Best Actress award for `Churchills'). Its many memorable productions include `Upstairs, Downstairs,' `I, Claudius,' 'The Jewel in the Crown,' `House of Cards,' `Poldark' and `Prime Suspect.'
