Very interesting.
4 May 2001 | by (Gansbaai, South Africa) – See all my reviews

"Medical Detectives" is an extremely interesting series in which you learn about crimes been solved through the miracle of medical technology. The narrator is excellent and the stories carefully picked. But alas, like all other documentaries some episodes are quite boring, for instance the episode "Killer Fog". But even this episode managed to keep me intruiged in the scientists' brilliant minds. This series will keep me watching until the end of time!
