Starring Tara FitzGerald, who returns to her role as the fantastic Dr Eve Lockhart from the hit BBC One series Waking the Dead, and Keith Allen as Detective Inspector Hale, The Body Farm - Series One is an original six-part crime drama series released on BBC DVD by 2entertain on 24th October 2011.
Eve Lockhart is an exceptional forensic pathologist who leads a brilliant and ambitious team of scientists, working at the cutting edge of forensic detection. Here, no horror is taken for granted and murder is seen to be what it is - visceral and shocking. Their base is a remote farm from which, with the aid of donor bodies, they conduct research on behalf of police forces around the world into the many ways in which murders can be committed and sometimes disguised.
As the harsh economic climate eats into their funding, and the Home Office's own forensic facility falls victim to the cut backs, Eve accepts DI Hale's offer for The Body Farm to leave the hidden world of academic research for the gritty front line of murder detection. Eve, of course, is no stranger to murder in its many forms, but her new team find themselves rapidly thrust into an unexpectedly brutal new world.
Searching for truth and justice in the darkest human experience, The Body Farm - Series One combines forensic and mortal elements in a cinematic, beautiful, and arresting series.
