Charité, a German series set in 1888 in the charity hospital in Berlin follows on the British London Hospital 1905 and The Knick. However, Charitéincludes lots more social and political issues. I was startled at the end of the series to learn how much of it was based on fact. I didn't know, for example, that Arthur Conan Doyle revealed the false research claims of Robert Koch who later won the Nobel Prize. There were two other eventual Nobel Prize winners at the hospital at the same time. The focus on romantic relationships was less interesting, but overall I'd recommend the mini-series.
