Dr. Death with Dominic Burgess

The trial of Dr. Christopher Duntsch in Texas was one of those most surprising revelations in the past few years. The former American neurosurgeon was convicted for gross malpractice of maiming several patients, including killing two of them. The events unfolded in the Peacock narrative series of Dr. Death with Joshua Jackson playing Christopher Duntsch.

In the series and in real life, Duntsch’s best friend Jerry Summers supported him throughout his career. Through blind loyalty, Summers even asked Duntsch to operate on his neck injury and left his friend as a quadriplegic. Summers is portrayed by the talented Dominic Burgess in the series.

Here’s the brief synopsis:

Neurosurgeon Robert Henderson and vascular surgeon Randall Kirby set out to stop the brilliant but sociopathic Dr. Christopher Duntsch, whose patients leave his operating room either permanently maimed or dead; inspired by the terrifying true story.

The series also stars Alec Baldwin and Christian Slater.
