    were I to put money on whether this was ITV’s next big drama, I’d say it was Andrew Billen

    Monroe is has a refreshing feeling of confidence Sam Wollaston
    The Guardian

    Monroe is no upstart rival to the overstretched Holby family - it looks, sounds and, in general, is too good to be judged by such soapy standards. Comparisons to House will be hastily drawn, but it’s not too far off being worthy of a place in such exalted company....Monroe is modern medical drama in quite literally rude health
