Dr Hilary Jones - Frontline

In the midst of the pandemic, ITV’s Doctor Hilary Jones launches his epic historical series – a sweeping sumptuous WWI medical drama which features the Spanish Flu pandemic when only the strongest survived. Grace, a nurse, and Will, a young soldier, meet in a field hospital in France. Rumours of Armistice abound but hopes of peace are threatened by the deadly virus. Dr Hilary discusses the challenges posed by writing romantic fiction and plotting the course of a family saga across the twentieth century. Are there parallels with Covid 19, which has affected global well-being?
