- ‘Bloodletting & Miraculous Cures’ hits small screen as racy medical miniseries
“Sex, alcohol addiction and long-simmering emotional trauma – such is life in the Toronto-based medical drama Bloodletting & Miraculous Cures. Based on the 2006 Scotiabank Giller Prize-winning book by doctor/writer Vincent Lam, the racy TV miniseries picks up where Lam’s collection of short stories leaves off, with its tortured characters already well into the dysfunction that marked the surprise literary hit.
