Jamie Dornan's newest TV role sounds absolutely terrifying

Jamie Dornan has landed the lead role in the TV series, Dr. Death. 

EW report that Alex Baldwin and Christian Slater have also been cast in the series, which is being adapted from the hit podcast with the same name.


Dr. Death is the terrifying true story of Dr. Christopher Duntsch, a young rising star in the Dallas medical community.

But patients entered Duntsch's operating room for complicated, routine spinal surgeries, only to leave permanently maimed or dead.

And soon, the number of victims piled up - and two fellow surgeons and a young Assistant District Attorney set out to stop him.

Dr. Death is a horrifying look into the mind of a sociopath and a medical system that failed to protect these patients at every possible turn.

Alec Baldwin will play Robert Henderson, a "quiet, methodical" neurosurgeon who puts all of his faith in the medical system - and believes "anything worth doing shouldn't be rushed".

Christian Slater will play Randall Kirby, a "brash and impulsive" vascular surgeon who is "more than willing to burn that system to the ground in the name of justice".


Together, the pair will form an investigative duo who, while they're at odds in terms of personalities and methods, will be on the same page when it comes to the end game.

The series is said to be currently being shopped around to find a home on a network.

Dr. Death was originally a podcast which ran from September 2018 until December 2018. It was produced by Wondery, the folks who produced Dirty John.
