Storyline

Having lost her medical license in the aftermath of a family tragedy, Megan Hunt M.D. joined the medical examiners and proved herself a forensic genius. Yet even diplomatic Medico-legal Investigator Pete Dunlop can't prevent her arrogant attitude and total disregard for any authority or social norm to cause grave aggravation all around. Still, as long as the perpetrators suffer most, the bulldozer approach pays off on the balance. Written by KGF Vissers

Average and poorly devised protagonist
4 April 2015 | by (Dorset, UK) – See all my reviews

I watched series 1-3 when recovering from surgery and it was a thorough disappointment. The main problem is that the lead character is totally unlikeable (for anyone with a brain and knowledge of criminology or criminal justice). Her arrogance is not endearing rather it is off-putting with her constant omnipotence causing her to be the type of person one would fire rather than admire. Her 'findings' are constantly based on supposed science but in fact are more about proving and validating her own existence. The idea that an ME would be going in to question suspects is pathetically unrealistic (alright I know it's TV but come on) and her footwear at crime scenes abominable. Furthermore, how is it that as the pathologist, she only ever seems to wear clothing which emphasises her physique rather than preserves evidence (don't even get me started on CSI programmes). She is an unworthy character and wholly annoying; the show should have been cancelled after a few episodes and were it not for a long convalescing period, I would have never stuck it through to the end. The best thing in it was the scenery!
