This is one medical drama, set in an emergency department in Australia, that I have liked since I first start watching it. It's great to see a medical drama that is more focussed on the lives of the nurses rather than the doctors.
All Saints takes you through many trips of a nurses life and what they have to deal with within their job, the pressures they're under and the lack of power they have when crucial decisions need to be made.
It isn't all focussed around the nurses work lives, but their personal lives as well, seeing many friendships and relationships formed and broken. And of course, there are some doctors, but what medical drama doesn't have doctors?
If you're worried about cheesy, unrealistic medical drama, I wouldn't say All Saints fits in this category. Many medical stories featured within All Saints are visually realistic with, quite often, stories a lot of us can relate to, which makes for hard hitting storylines where you can literally feel for the character(s).
