Scarred heroes band together
Doom Patrol, Fox8, Thursday at 7.30pm Qld, 8.30pm NSW
THE Doom Patrol’s members each suffered horrible accidents that gave them superhuman abilities, but also left them scarred and disfigured.
Traumatised and downtrodden, the team found purpose through The Chief (Timothy Dalton, pictured centre), an idealistic mad scientist who brought them together to investigate the weirdest phenomena in existence and to protect Earth from what they find.
Part support group, part superhero team, the Doom Patrol is a band of super-powered freaks who fight for a world that wants nothing to do with them.
Called to action by Cyborg, who comes to them with a mission hard to refuse but with a warning that is hard to ignore, their lives will never, ever be the same.
