What is Dr. Death season 2 about?

While season one explored the misdeeds of nefarious neurosurgeon Christopher Duntsch (Joshua Jackson), season two takes us into the life and crimes of esteemed Swiss thoracic surgeon Paolo Macchiarini, whose pioneering work in artificial tracheas turned out to have a body count.

Or, as the official synopsis would have it, “Dr. Death season two will feature the ‘Miracle Man’ storyline based on the most recent third season of the Wondery podcast. Paolo Macchiarini (Edgar Ramirez) is a charming surgeon, renowned for his innovative operations that earn him the nickname ‘Miracle Man.’ When investigative journalist Benita Alexander (Mandy Moore) approaches him for a story, the line between personal and professional begins to blur, changing her life forever. As she learns how far Paolo will go to protect his secrets, a group of doctors halfway across the world make shocking discoveries of their own that call everything about the ‘Miracle Man’ into question.”

Given this is a true story, Wikipedia has all the details if you’re not worried about spoilers.

Why we’re excited about Dr. Death season 2

There’s just something about medical crimes, isn’t there? The idea that the person who holds your life in your hands doesn’t actually put much value in it. It’s a special kind of horror. You’re never gonna run into a werewolf or a zombie, but you never know what’s going to happen to you after the general anaesthetic kicks in, making this show a horribly relatable, eminently binge-able treat.
