English TV version of the Burke and Hare story focusing primarily on Alister Sim as Dr Knox, the man who wants fresh bodies for his classes.
Talky pro-science film seems to be stretched and occasional unfocused, its not bad but I often wasn't sure what the point of the film was.Clearly the point was to say that what science does sometimes is shocking and that Knox was bothered but what happened, but at the same time making the film less a boogeyman story takes the edge off the oft told tale. It doesn't help that the love story thats been shoe horned in is far from compelling with the fiancé of a Knox associate coming off as a bit shrewish. Its a came try but it doesn't really work.
Not bad, but not really worth your time either unless you're a huge Alister Sim fan.
