Paul Cornell’s Pulse gets a transmission date

St Timothy’s is one of the UK’s top teaching hospitals, home to some of the country’s most promising trainee doctors. But beneath its veneer of medical normality lies a secret network of dangerous experiments pushing back the boundaries of science with potentially horrifying consequences in this one-off 60-minute medical horror drama written by Paul Cornell.
Hannah Carter’s mother was a consultant at the hospital, but died suddenly a year ago. Grief left Hannah (Claire Foy) teetering on the edge, but following a year off, she’s back to resume her training. But Hannah remains fragile, so when she starts glimpsing peculiar events in the hospital and unsettling behaviour from her ex-boyfriend and star surgeon Nick (Stephen Campbell Moore), she’s unsure what to believe.

Ignoring the pleas of those around her, Hannah puts her sanity on the line to uncover the truth about the hospital.

If you’re a regular visitor to the website you’ll know that we received and reviewed a preview copy of a pilot of a new show from the Pen of Paul Cornell (Doctor Who, Captain Britain and soon Action Comics). I can now tell you that the BBC have now given the show a date and time which has been revealed by Paul himself.

Pulse will be broadcast on BBC3 at 9pm on Thursday, June 3rd. Watch this space, or my Twitter feed, for a forthcoming trailer, website, and how you can see the episode before broadcast. Our Twitter hashtag is: #pulsebbc3

I would definitely recommend people check out the pilot and if you’re interested in what I thought of it here’s my spoiler free review.

I really think this could make for a great series so fingers crossed it gets the viewing figures and the positive  response it needs.

You can find out more about pulse at it’s facebook book page.
