Sky One’s new drama series Temple will premiere on Friday September 13th at 10pm, it has been announced.
Temple tells the story of Daniel Milton, a talented surgeon whose world is turned upside-down when his wife develops a life-threatening illness. Conventional options for treatment run out, yet Daniel refuses to accept the cards he’s been dealt. He partners with the obsessive yet surprisingly resourceful misfit Lee, to start a literal ‘underground’ clinic in the vast network of tunnels beneath Temple tube station in London.
They are soon joined by Anna, a guilt-ridden medical researcher whose past is entangled with Daniel’s, and Jamie, a young fugitive bank-robber. Daniel does his best to juggle this dysfunctional family as his moral boundaries between being a husband, friend and doctor are challenged. But it soon becomes apparent that it may be him and his desperate actions that finally bring the whole thing crashing down. Just how far will Daniel Milton go for love?
