Co-created and written by Malcolm MacRury and Morwyn Brebner, Saving Hope was inspired by a series of 2005 articles by Globe and Mail writer Ian Brown who spent eight weeks in Toronto’s Mount Sinai Hospital. It is described as a sexy, fast-paced drama set in a fictional Toronto hospital that follows the lives of the doctors and staff and the complicated decisions they make trying to save lives.

Awful, turgidly sentimental tripe. Normally I think and write in whole sentences but this programme has affected my ability to do that. I managed two episodes, I have no idea how I managed that much. I just can't take any more...
A show with potential. Some heart-wrenching moments. Drama, pain, sadness. I'm not 100% happy with the character constellation, but Erica Durance is doing a great job. Sometimes it lacks excitement and cliffhangers and twisting stories,which make you want to see and know more. But it's a good show and worth a try.
Must admit I decided to watch this after a huge crush on the actor Daniel Gillies when I saw him on The Originals. But this was kind of a good show and helped with the withdrawal symptoms when Emily Owens got cancelled.
As the first season drew to a close, I kept thinking, "How are they going to keep this show going; sustain the premise, but not jump the shark?" I have been pleasantly surprised with the writing. Just enough twists to keep it fresh, but maintain what drew viewers in.
