Lacks detail and depth

This is another interesting Dr Death subject but there is little depth or detail on the alleged medical negligence (there is more detail on Macchiarini’s Wikipedia page). The podcast touches on some fascinating issues on institutional/systemic failure to support whistleblowers and uncover problems, and the potential tensions between innovative procedures v medical ethics, but it fails to explore them. There is too much focus on the personal life of Macchiarini, which didn’t need several episodes to be described in detail, and ultimately detracted from the central theme.

Great

I really enjoyed this season. Quite different from the other two seasons!

Agree too drawn out

I lost interest. I did not understand the point of the Barcelona trip much of this was drawn out and over dramatised.
