See Why Critics Are Raving About This Is Going to Hurt on AMC+

If you’re looking for a new show to watch, why not try the best reviewed new series of 2022? According to review aggregator Metacritic, that honor belongs to the new AMC+ Original Series This Is Going to Hurt. 
Based on Adam Kay’s award-winning international bestselling memoir of the same name, This Is Going To Hurt stars Ben Whishaw (A Very English Scandal, No Time to Die, London Spy) as Adam, a doctor who is finding his way through the ranks of hospital hierarchy; junior enough to suffer the crippling hours, but senior enough to face a constant barrage of terrifying responsibilities. Adam is clinging to his personal life as he is increasingly overwhelmed by stresses at work: the 97-hour weeks, the life-and-death decisions, and all the while knowing the hospital parking meter is earning more than him.
Created, written and executive produced by Kay, This Is Going To Hurt rejoices in the laugh-out-loud highs, while pulling no punches in its depiction of the gut-wrenching lows of life on a gynecology and obstetrics ward. But don’t just take our word for it – check out just a few of the rave reviews the series has earned:
· “Hurt is the best medical drama in years because, instead of celebrating idealized superhuman doctors, it observes how broken systems force real doctors to attempt superhuman feats.” – TIME
· “What will make the series so watchable—and for medical practitioners, perhaps, uncomfortable—is the honesty of it all. Which, considering the long history of TV medicine, will also make it a constant surprise.”– The Wall Street Journal 
· “It’s an emotionally complex and uneasily hilarious examination of the U.K.’s National Health Service and a prickly character study played with a rich disinterest in likability by Ben Whishaw.” – The Hollywood Reporter
It’s been a while since TV has had a great hospital drama. This Is Going to Hurt definitely qualifies.”– Rolling Stone
· "This Is Going to Hurt is transfixing in part because it is prepared to portray, both in drama and in dark comedy, the toll this all takes on doctors personally but also on the care that they're able to give.” – NPR's "Pop Culture Happy Hour' 
· “It is, in a word, spectacular; different from the book, as it needed to be, but every bit as effective in conveying the central theme while still being hugely funny and hugely watchable.” – Paste Magazine 
The series also stars newcomer Ambika Mod, Michele Austin (Meet the Richardsons, The Casual Vacancy), BAFTA-nominated Alex Jennings (The Crown, A Very English Scandal, Unforgotten, The Lady In The Van), Kadiff Kirwan (Chewing Gum, This Way Up, The Stranger), Ashley McGuire (This Country, Malory Towers, It’s A Sin), Emmy-nominated Dame Harriet Walter (Killing Eve, The Crown, Succession), Rory Fleck Byrne (Harlots, Vita and Virginia, Ghosts), and Tom Durant-Pritchard (Feel Good, The Windsors, Judy, The Crown).
