Based on the hit podcast from Wondery, “Dr. Death” tells the shocking true story of Dr. Christopher Duntsch (Joshua Jackson), a seemingly bright young neurosurgeon with a thriving medical practice. But all is not as it seems.

Our take

Adapted from a podcast based on an incredible, but horrifying true story, the series relates the story of two doctors (Alec Baldwin and Christian Slater) hunting down a mythomaniac killer surgeon (Joshua Jackson). You’d better not be under the surgeon’s knife.
