Dr Megan Hunt...former top surgeon, now epic Medical Examiner, and general know-it-all-about-everything, except how to be a wife, mother and friend, but she's learning on the job! Yes, I think that about summerises 'Body of Proof', a US star vehicle for Dana Delany (of recent 'Desperate Housewives' fame) with a supporting cast of who, who, who (only Jeri Ryan, of Voyager, stands out as a semi-recognisable face). However there are pop up 'special guest stars' which add interest.
Basically, the story is police procedural and episodic, with only family strands (i.e. Megan's inability to connect with her daughter) that spread across the series. Dana Delany does well to carry the show, but the writer's insistence on making her a general know-it-all is grating. If the show reaches a second season it would be nice to have a slightly humbler Dr Hunt, who learns and grows from others, rather than being the only one who seems to know what on earth is going on in the ME's office. Also I do question whether a woman who spends so much time on her feet at the surgical table would ever be able to maintain the standard of high-heel that she sports through every episode
On the whole a sterling effort, B+ for a first season, but there's work to do if 'Body of Proof' is going to become the level of hit series than Delany has enjoyed before.
