New NBC drama Heartbeat, starting tonight in the UK, stars Melissa George as brilliant – but idiosyncratic!!1! – surgeon Alex Panttiere. And from here, we really could pitch it ourselves: she’s a maverick with a boss who plays by the rules; she’s working with her boyfriend, but her romantic life isn’t straightforward; she juggles her family and professional lives; Cases of the Week. If it sounds tired, that’s because, in the view of the American critics, it is. I don’t mind Ms George, but I’m unsure whether that’s a majority view. Either way, I don’t expect to watch (9pm, TLC).
