“A sharp, classy thriller to sink your teeth into” – THE MIRROR
The series launched in September with the Observer calling it “quite wonderful” and “hugely rewarding”, whilst the Daily Mirror said it was “a sharp, classy thriller to sink your teeth into” and the i called it “blackly comic, gloriously Gothic and potentially addictive.”
Produced by Hera Pictures, Temple tells the story of Daniel Milton (Mark Strong), a respected surgeon who finds himself drawn into the underground world of doomsday preppers and bank robbers when he tries to save his wife’s life, by setting up an illicit clinic with obsessive yet surprisingly resourceful misfit Lee (Daniel Mays), in the vast network of tunnels beneath Temple tube station in London.
They are soon joined by Anna (Carice Van Houten), a guilt-ridden medical researcher whose past is entangled with Daniel’s and fugitive bank-robber Jamie (Tobi King-Bakare). Daniel does his best to juggle this dysfunctional family as his moral boundaries as a husband, friend and doctor are challenged.

In last night’s final episode, viewers were left on a tantalising cliff hanger following a climatic showdown as they wait to find out just what happens next to Daniel, Lee, Anna and Jamie.
With filming set for early 2020 they won’t have too long to wait as series two re-joins the action a month on from where we last left them, as they are all brought back together when the crimes they have sought to bury begin to resurface.
Daniel desperately tries to keep everything under control but with Lee falling for a fanatical uber-Prepper and Anna luring patients down to the clinic for illegal drug trials, life is only going to get more insane.
