Kingdom Hospital is not only built on the site of two earlier doomed buildings, but it seems to have been built on the epicentre of some geological quake zone. Only it turns out that it's not the geology of the area causing the hospital to shake, but a build-up of restless spirits. The spirit of a young girl wanders the hospital, periodically ringing her bell - a portent of death, audible to only a few. Her constant companion is a huge anteater that is really something far more sinister - and godly. These two are engaged in a mortal struggle with an evil doctor and his assistant from the time of the first disaster on the site, just after the civil war. Meanwhile, the living staff and patients in the hospital lead a surreal existence that, to them, seems almost normal. The characters are interesting and complex - not wholly good or bad, many shades of grey.
I've read some scathing reviews elsewhere, about this series and was not tempted to buy it until I caught a few episodes on the telly recently. It's hard to explain what it is about the programmes that so enthralled me, but I just relaxed into it from the moment the opening music and titles started. Bearing in mind that some people loath this series whereas I love it, I can only cautiously recommend it. In any case, for me, it's worth the full 5 stars.
