In Series 2 – Episode 1, Dr Bruce Powell reflects on inauspicious beginnings and annoying personality traits, none of which appeared likely to lend themselves to a career in medicine.
Failed exams, rejections and inspiring, disturbing encounters, created a unique path via nursing in the south of France and lock-ins in Sainsbury’s freezers, to the Royal Free Hospital School of Medicine.
“You Only Live Twice” chronicles the struggles to get into, and stay in medicine, all told with Bruce’s “signature black humour and feigned indifference”.
What other choice do you have, when God poops in you bed, but to scoop it up and battle on, learning lessons along the way?
