Mark Strong (Kingsman), Carise van Houten (Game of Thrones) and Daniel Mays (Line of Duty) lead the cast of Sky's new dark comic thriller Temple.
Deep beneath the hustle and bustle on London’s Temple tube station, is hidden a dark secret: an illegal clinic set up in the abandoned network of underground tunnels.
Daniel (Strong) is a surgeon whose own trauma has led him to establish the clinic, making medicine available to any who need it. Assisted by grumbling Lee (Mays) and Anna (van Houten), the trio treat a variety of increasingly dangerous and desperate patients, testing Daniel’s morality to the limits.
Adapted from the hit Norwegian drama Valkyrien, available on Walter Presents, Temple asks one central question: How far would you go to save the person you love?
The show, said Strong, “is a gripping and humane morality tale for our time.” He added, “[Writer] Mark O’Rowe has created a complex and multi-faceted character in Daniel – a man pushed to the extreme as his world is radically destabilised.”
