English archaeology professor 'Dolly' Parton's team handles high-profile (notably relic) finds. Often those prove relevant in the present, as such and/or as symbol for a cause. So the team runs personal danger, on top of their messy love - and other personal lives. Usually the story of the object is mainly told in an opening gambit and the episode's final. Written by
The series was poorly received by critics and viewers. The BBC was prepared to commission a second series, but the writers declined, feeling that they had taken a risk with the show but that it had not paid off. See more »
Having come to the IMDb page on Bonekickers after already having seen the series--a perfectly fine, better than average production, from which much pleasure can be derived--I can only assume that the extremely harsh comments about it here are the result of some kind of (probably informal) conspiracy, perhaps inspired by the content of episode one. The cast is attractive, the individual episodes work as adventures, and the characters' various back-stories add depth to the mix. For those who haven't actually seen the show, then, check it out: unless you identity with the villain in episode one, you may well enjoy the series, in which case (as an added bonus) you will also be amused (and intrigued) by the hostility being directed toward it here.
