Eve Lockhart leads us into her other world on ‘The Body Farm’, a private forensics facility that is pushing the boundaries of scientific research and crime solving into unchartered territory. Eve is an exceptional forensic pathologist who leads a brilliant and ambitious team of scientists at the private facility where human remains are donated for scientific research. They are called upon by police forces all over the world to provide expert knowledge to help solve crimes. Here, no horror is taken for granted and murder is seen to be what it is--visceral and shocking.

-'The Body Farm' itself-a collection of farm buildings in an unspecified location filled to the rafters with digital and computerised technology that 'real' forensic teams can only dream about. It is too technical,giving the impression that serious crime can be solved merely by pressing a button.
-The character of 'Oggy',one of the 'team'.A stereotype- techno-phobe,uber geek happiest at his terminal and totally at odds with the real world.A past illness is hinted at but not developed. He is a genius-can spot a death scene fungus sent to him via an I-Phone and give its latin name.He self harms to test viral infection!! Yes,its that sort of pretentious programme.
- The lone police presence-played by Keith Allen, a seemingly one man police district with no other officers or means of solving crime. He therefore enlists the assistance of the good Doctor and her team. To be fair, Keith Allen gives a restrained performance but just who is he?
-Who indeed are this specialist team and who do they work for? The viewer is expected to accept what is shown without asking what? who? or why?
-The hour long format which wraps everything up in a nice little parcel with plots so thin that you can spot the suspect(s) a mile off and are expected to suspend disbelief that a hospital ward sister would allow a woman with no ID into intensive care just because she claims to be working for the Home Office! The same said woman then proceeds, with some level of accuracy, to inform the patients relatives of the patients condition and recovery prognosis!!! Utter fallacy.
-Snap decisions are made, with little to back them up,and they usually-wonder of wonders-turn out to be right.Read more ›
There is no doubt that one of the series failings is that it is anonymously named as 'body farm'. Forensic and crime scene investigation is a very topical angle on drama at the minute. I felt that the BBC should have allowed the series to develop onto a second series, so as to perhaps uncover some perplexing issues which have been brought to the writers attention by reviewers here.
The reviews also mention the lack of 'real world' 2013 Britain we live in. DNA analysis, data protection act all out the window with privacy and social networking services not even entering the equation! I think people have taken some of the series strengths, far too seriously. Its the underlying stories and plots which give 'Body Farm' its uniqueness.
