Product Description

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.

I enjoyed watching the Body Farm. I think the show deserved a second series. I think Tara Fitzgerald is excellent in this series as Dr Eve Lockhart. Also I thought Keith Allan was good as well as DI Hale. I thought the six stories where excellent. The fact that Trevor Eve was part of making the show I thought it was well made. I know the series does not get the very good reviews but I still enjoyed watching it.

Dr Eve Lockhart (Tara FitzGerald) from Waking the Dead gets her own series.So where does it go wrong?
-'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.

As a fan of Waking The Dead, and BBC drama in general, I was looking forward to this series. Week one left me feeling unconvinced, weeks two and three have consolidated my disappointment - I totally agree with the comments of the first two reviewers. Additionally, there are just too many occasions when the viewer is required to suspend belief in relation to timescales for complex scientific analysis to be undertaken and this detracts from the suspense. There are some good bits, but these are overshadowed by the overall lack of credibility in the plots and a dvd of the series will be at the bottom of my priority list.

I really felt I had to add my voice to the reviews here on this TV series. There is no doubt that the action is fast paced and each episode could have been expanded or 'grown' into three, one hour long parts. As it is, it is condensed. The pace is fast and you are quite honestly riveted to your seat because if you blink, you could miss a key moment in the story. The stories are very clever, good in my opinion. Issues raised like 'mercy killings' and people dying by taking an 'epileptic seizure' highlight just some of the ignorances of todays society.

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.

I thoroughly enjoy this series - not to watch while you are eating a meal though! It's a pity that the series didn't run longer - I'd have certainly wanted to watch more of it.

It should not come as any surprise I bought this for the one episode Jonas appeared in. I haven't gotten around to watching any other episodes so far as there are times I think some series/movies which are too graphic and gory, authentically made and would scare the daylights out of the seasoned movie buff. I'm not too keen on a lot of the explicit stuff or bad language which seems to be the norm these days. I bought The Street by Jimmy McGovern for the same reason and found that extremely brilliant throughout. No wonder it won BAFTA awards at the time.

Absolutely fantastic. Extremely disappointing that this wasn't liked enough, by the critics, to continue. Great premise and promise; superb acting by talented actors. Some inconsistencies with reality but it's fiction, so who cares. Don't be put off by the naysayers, watch it for what it is, entertainment, and enjoy (although maybe not while eating...)
