Storyline

Dr. Eve Lockhart and her three assistants Rosie, Mike and Oggy are forensic scientists at the 'body farm'. They are called in by inspector Hale when the remains of two youths are found in a derelict tower block. It is initially assumed that they were bombers who blew themselves up but Eve believes they were murdered prior to the explosion. DNA links them to Jojo Collins,a pregnant girl who attempted suicide and is now in a coma. Jojo's father,an ex-soldier,admits to killing the boys because they raped her but Eve believes he is sheltering somebody else. Forensics and detection will work out just who.

Not a hugely promising start
10 August 2015 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

As a huge Waking the dead fan I purposely did not watch this, until now. Waking the dead felt slick, fast paced, well directed and somehow sleek, first impressions of the spin off series are, slow, clunky and limited. Eve Lockhart was my favourite of Waking the Dead's morticians, her character was so interesting and deep. It just feels that there is something lacking, the opening credits are cheap looking, initially I can't decide if it's Eve, Johnson etc that are missing. The crime scene is a little unconvincing looking, it looks unconvincing. The team of characters also seem a little uninspiring, we have Oggy, refusing to take his medication, the moody Mike, and the fresh faced Rosa, the latter placed by the normally wonderful Wunmi Mosaku, but even she seems a little lost in the script. I really can see why Tara was given a series, she's a fantastic actress and a very interesting character, but this is a struggle, even Keith Allen's not having the best of times seemingly. By the end of the first episode we have hit every single cliché under the sun. Does the tsetse fly exist in the UK, not sure? The music was always well scored in Waking the dead, it helped build tension, add drama etc, it's so flat in this episode. A very average start.
