Doctor-X (Season1-3)
gDoctor-Xh was aired on TV Asahi Network in 2012, and marked the highest audience ratings among all the dramas aired in the year by commercial TV stations in Japan.
The gutsy and reliable character of a female freelance surgeon grasped the audiencesf attention.

Michiko Daimon is a stunningly beautiful and stubbornly self-reliant freelance surgeon who prides herself in her skill and dignity as a surgeon.

Her new temporary employment is at a hierarchical university hospital where doctors thrive for power and money rather than required medical ethics.

When Michiko arrives at the hospital dressed like a fashion model, the other doctors cannot hide their surprise. But more than her appearance, it is what she does in the hospital that creates a major stir.

Michiko rejects any overtime or any work that can be done by an assistant and she even criticizes the surgical techniques of the hospital director.

But her aggressive cliché of gI donft make mistakesh is proven in each episode as she undertakes difficult operations that require her outstanding anticipation, diagnosis and surgical skill.
