Bodies

Weekend viewing sorted!

Stephen Graham’s latest show Bodies is now streaming on Netflix and has been met with great reviews.

The series arrived on the platform today (19 October) and is a murder mystery set over four different eras, spanning 163 years.

Based on the graphic novel by Si Spencer, the synopsis for Bodies reads:

“When a body – the same body – is found on Longharvest Lane in London’s East End in 1890, 1941, 2023 and 2053, one detective from each period must investigate.

“As connections are drawn across the decades, the detectives soon discover their investigations are linked, and an enigmatic political leader – Elias Mannix (Stephen Graham – Line of Duty, Snatch) – becomes increasingly central.

“Did he have a part to play in the murder? Or is something far more sinister at play? To solve the mystery, our four detectives must somehow collaborate and uncover a conspiracy spanning over 150 years.”

Stephen Graham’s new Netflix thriller series Bodies drops today with great reviews

In the days before its release, the show was met with several positive reviews.

You can read a sample of these right here:

Cosmopolitan: “Seriously binge-worthy TV. It’ll leave your mind blown and you screaming at the screen with all its twists and turns.”

The Guardian: “Ambitious, tense, explosive: this genre-blurring whodunnit travels time to visit four detectives investigating the same murder – in different eras. It’s exceptionally good value.”

Radio Times: “Netflix’s Bodies is almost impossible to define – and that’s one of the best parts of it. Part mystery, part police procedural, part character drama, part dystopia (plus more parts we won’t spoil here), it’s a much-needed breath of fresh air.”

Co-starring Amaka Okafor (The Responder), Jacob Fortune-Lloyd (The Queen’s Gambit), Kyle Soller (Andor) and Shira Haas (Unorthodox), Bodies is available to watch on Netflix now.
