The nightmarish story of Christopher Duntsch, an American surgeon whose malpractice maimed dozens of patients, is the subject of the new series Dr. Death, which has launched on the streaming site Peacock and stars Joshua Jackson alongside Alec Baldwin and Christian Slater.

Jackson, known for his work on Dawson’s Creek and Fringe, took on the unsettling role of Duntsch, and in an interview with Efe explained what drew him to the character. EFE
