After the success of House, Hugh Laurie lands the title role in another US drama about a troubled medic. He plays San Francisco neuropsychiatrist Eldon Chance, specialising in assessing trauma victims. In this episode, he gets personally involved in the case of a woman whose abusive husband is a cop. Despite his pained expression throughout, Hugh is as watchable as ever, and the locations give the show a distinctive look.
