The new BBC One TV series This Is Going To Hurt follows the life of Dr. Junior Adam Kay.
The series was adapted by the real-life Kay herself from the author’s best-selling non-fiction book, This is going to Hurt: Secret Diaries of a Junior Doctor.
Is This Is Going To Hurt based on real life?
This is going to Hurt is based on Adam Kay’s diary from when he was a junior doctor in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology.
The comedy will show the introspection and life of a hospital doctor with sleepless nights and missed weekends.
The series will see Adam find his way through the hospital hierarchy, as he’s junior enough to work disabled hours but senior enough to tackle the incredible responsibilities that are often life-and-death.
This is Going to Hurt will also see how Adam tries to maintain his personal life while juggling 97 hours a week.

Kay worked for a number of years as an intern in obstetrics and gynecology, writing textbooks on the subject.
