Doc nelle tue mani

I have reached the end of the third season of “Doc in Your Hands”, an amazing medical drama — there will probably be a fourth, given its success — but the last episode left me very dissatisfied. After a great “episode” like the sixth, the one about the earthquake so to speak, worthy of the best American series and of the progenitor E. R., I was disappointed by the ending.

In the other episodes an incredible suspense was created, everyone was there waiting to know the reasons why Doc had left his wife, and the power intrigues that involved him together with his ex and an unscrupulous politician, to finally have a weak and watery explanation.

And then, let’s face it, we all sided with Giulia Giordano (aka Matilde Gioli), who has always been in love with Doc (aka Luca Argentero). For three seasons she had waited for him to remember their love story erased by amnesia, and for him to get rid of the ghost of his ex-wife (not at all considered ex by him) and so, when the two finally meet again, Doc once again gets closer to his wife, who is threatened by a deadly recurrence of an old tumor. But poor Giulia! Her look in the last shot is a whole program.

It’s a shame, I was saying, that the ending is so unsatisfactory, because this fiction has kept us glued to the screen — be it TV, tablet or mobile phone — for three seasons, following difficult and intriguing health…
