‘Masterpiece Mystery! Breathless’ airs Aug. 24
August 21, 2014
“Breathless,” a new medical drama set in London in 1961, follows the lives of a group of doctors and nurses working in a hospital, a world in which everything and everyone has their place. \
But underneath this veneer are lies and guilty secrets. Episode one opens at a time when Britain was on the brink of the ’60s revolution: abortion is illegal and the contraceptive pill is only just available to married women. The program stars Jack Davenport (Smash, Pirates of the Caribbean), and Zoe Boyle and Iain Glen of Downton Abbey, and Natasha Little.
