Excellent and compelling viewing, I don't know how realistic it is as I am not an expert but it is well worth the watch. I have waited in vain for this program to appear on standard terrestrial but to date it has only been shown on digital TV. BBC Three has been coming up with some real nuggets like this but they have mostly been below the radar, with very few of them making a cross over to BBC Two in an attempt to tease the wider public into going digital. This is great drama but has not yet convinced me into making the switch to digital. I normally go over to my mate's house that has got digital TV to watch it. This show was so good that I would make the trek to watch it.
I feel that the program would really take off given a wider audience; I think it is a prime candidate for the switch to BBC Two. As well as potential for international export to places like the states and Europe.
I like many others are keenly awaiting the beginning of the second season of Bodies, this show is too good not to have a follow up.
