Pulse

Synopsis

A year earlier medical student Hannah Carter (Claire Foy) freaked out in the operating theatre when her doctor mother, a cancer patient, died. Now she is back to resume her studies amongst whispers of her instability.
Why does the stomach of Charlie Maddox, a man who has had five operations for abdominal cancer, undulate when she feels it? How come the cut on the hand of surgeon Nick Gates (Stephen Campbell-Moore), Hannah's ex-boyfriend, never heals and why is Nick secretly injecting Charlie but not recording it on his notes?
Hannah decides to investigate, uncovering a secret involving a new wonder drug with potentially lethal results.
Pulse was written by Paul Cornell from a story by Ben Teasdale.

If you like your dramas modern gothic, then Pulse has it all: creatures busting out of abdomens in homage to Alien, cuts that mysteriously heal and reopen, zombies with lights instead of eyes. But what makes this a cut above your average schlock-horror is that the supernatural is crafted on to what feels like an ordinary Holby experience, with doctors and nurses gossiping on the wards in between jumping in and out of bed with each other. - The Guardian (2010).
