Netflix’s Stephen Graham Bodies series set in four different eras has dropped

Netflix’s Stephen Graham Bodies series set in four different eras has dropped

The 'mind-snapping' new series is available to stream now

Stephen Graham’s latest murder mystery series - with a sci-fi twist - is now streaming on Netflix.

Bodies lands on the streaming platform today (19 October) and promises to keep viewers firmly on the edge of their seats. You can see the trailer here:

The series, which is based upon the graphic novel of the same name by Si Spencer, ‘is part sci-fi, part murder mystery, part period drama, and part police procedural’, according to Netflix.

A synopsis from Netflix teases: “When a dead body appears in the streets of London, it seems like business as usual for the detective working the case. Unbeknownst to her, that same victim shows up in the same spot across three other points in time: in 1890, during the Victorian era; 1941, some of Britain’s darkest days of World War II; and 30 years in the future. As the investigations converge, they reveal a sinister conspiracy that threatens London.”

Set across four time periods - 1890, 1941, 2023 and 2053 - Bodies was created by Paul Tomalin, who says the show is ‘mind-snapping’.

Stephen Graham stars in the ‘mind-snapping’ new series.

He told Netflix: “It’s a police-procedural show that shifts and transforms from moment to moment, so you never know what’s coming next… This is a kinetic, ambitious thrill ride - a wolf in [a] detective drama’s clothing.”

While Graham, who has previously starred in Peaky Blinders and Boiling Point, said: “When I heard that [directors] Marco Kreuzpaintner and Haolu Wang were combining to do the series, that sold it for me.

“Writers Paul Tomalin and Danusia Samal did an amazing job of keeping it fresh and exciting.”

Alongside BAFTA award winner Graham, the murder mystery will also star Shira Haas from Unorthodox as investigator DC Iris Maplewood living in 2053; Jacob Fortune-Lloyd (The Queen's Gambit) as Detective Sergeant Charles Whiteman during the 1941 investigation; Amaka Okafor (Greatest Days) as Shahara Hasan, the present day detective sergeant; and Poldark star Kyle Soller as 1890s detective inspector Alfred Hillinghead.

Bodies is set across four time periods, spanning from 1890 to 2053.

Fortune-Lloyd said: “Each detective is going through very different things, but each of them starts to work out that this is no ordinary cadaver.

“There is something very dark and menacing behind its appearance in these different time periods.”

Sounds pretty good, eh?

And if you fancy getting to the bottom of this particular murder mystery, then you’re in luck - because all episodes of Bodies are available to stream right now on Netflix.
