Rory Fleck Byrne stars in the highly anticipated, new comedy-drama from the BBC, This Is Going to Hurt.
The show is based on Adam Kay’s autobiographical novel This is Going to Hurt: Secret Diaries of a Junior Doctor, which quickly became a bestseller after arriving in 2017. It gives a brutally honest insight into the UK’s National Health Service (or better known NHS).
The story follows junior NHS doctor Adam, with Rory Fleck Byrne (The Foreigner) playing his partner Harry.
The Metro calls it ‘wryly funny’ and ‘a profound and impactful watch’. The Radio Times describes it is as a ‘hilarious yet heart-breaking tribute to the NHS’, with the Evening Standard calling the ‘superlative adaptation of Adam Kay’s memoir.. funny chaotic and heartbreaking’.
This Is Going to Hurt airs on BBC One on 8th February 2022 at 9pm, and is also available to watch on BBC iPlayer.
