Millions of viewers covered their eyes during new BBC One drama Trust Me

Millions of viewers covered their eyes during new when a nurse posing as a doctor yanked a twisted ankle back into shape. 

In the show, Jodie Whittaker plays Cath Hardacre who pretends to be a doctor in an Edinburgh hospital’s A&E department.

One of the patients in Tuesday’s first episode was a man with a horribly twisted ankle which she manipulated into shape by crunching his foot back into place without anaesthetic.

Real life A&E doctor Dan Sefton, who created and wrote the series, said the injury and the procedure would have been routine for an actual doctor. 

But the sound effects and prosthetics increased the stomach-turning effect.

“It’s a shocking scene, and it looks horrible,” said Sefton. 

“The twisted leg was made of plastic, on a metal skeleton. The effect of the scene on viewers was enhanced by the sound effect of bones crunching – it probably doesn’t sound as bad as that in real life.”
