Deep below the streets of London, descending past Temple tube in the beating heart of the city, lies a dark secret. An illegal clinic has been set up in an abandoned subterranean network of tunnels.
Daniel (Strong), is a surgeon, driven by personal tragedy to treat anyone who is willing to pay for medical help outside the system. Aided by Lee (Mays) a disgruntled transport employee, and Anna (Houten) a guilt-ridden medical researcher, they treat a variety of increasingly desperate and highly dangerous patients, as Daniel’s morality is tested to the limit. ‘Temple’ is a story of fate, chaos and consequence and asks how far you would go to save the person you love.

Liza Marshall, Mark Strong and Mark O’Rowe exec produce for Hera Pictures and Gabriel Silver and Anne Mensah for Sky.
