Quacks season 1
A new medical comedy Quacks season 1 tells about doctors, which tryes use a new technologies and skills in the medecine. Robert is a domineering, showman surgeon – a rock star of his age – who is almost as brilliant as he thinks he is. He can pack out an operating theatre and take off a leg in 92 seconds. But after a botched amputation, Robert is put under pressure by the royal physician, Dr Hendrick. So John, a drug-addled dentist who is trying to create the world’s first anaesthetic, convinces Robert to use potentially lethal ether in a prestigious and pioneering operation. Meanwhile, Caroline, Robert’s headstrong wife, finds herself frustrated with her lot as a housewife and seeks help from Robert’s friend William – a kind but anxious alienist – an early psychiatrist – who understands her better than her own husband does. He wants to help her with phrenology treatment, but that involves touching her on an intimate area – her head.
