Trust Me is a British medical drama that premiered on BBC One. The four-part first series aired in August 2017, and was written by Dan Sefton.[1] In February 2018, the programme was renewed for a second series.[2]


Cath Hardacre, a sister, who loses her job following whistle blowing, steals the identity of a doctor, her best friend, to make a new life in Edinburgh with her daughter.




On 23 February 2018, it was announced that Trust Me would return for a second series, featuring a new premise and an entirely new cast owing to Jodie Whittaker's casting as the Thirteenth Doctor in Doctor Who. The second series will be set on the neurological unit of South Lothian Hospital, following Syrian tour veteran Captain James 'Jamie' McKay as he recovers from spinal injuries and psychological trauma whilst facing a potential new enemy as patients unexpectedly die around him.[2]
