TRAUMA, the brilliant new contemporary drama directed by Marc Evans has begun filming. Written by Mike Bartlett, the three-part drama revolves around two fathers, Jon Allerton (Adrian Lester) and Dan Bowker (John Simm), whose lives collide when Bowker’s teenage son is fatally stabbed, dying in Allerton’s trauma unit.
