I just get amazed with the complexity and feel of this British drama about a band of merry forensic pathologists. This week’s episodes concentrated on murders that revolve around a school. I like it how the cases can become interrelated after some time. The character development is also very nice. These episodes center around Leo and his past. We discover how it has marked him. Also, the way that the murders are related is really disturbing. Things like these have been known to happen in reality and it is dreadful to think that children are pushed along these lines of thinking without having the ethical or moral dilemmas that come with them.
Basically, the story revolves around a murder squad, people murdering others without any clear lack of conscience or guilt. Murdering for no logical reasons except spite. Maybe one of the murders that involved a case of incest had some relevance, but the others were just bad.
An excellent show, I recommend it to fans of CSI, Crossing Jordan and medical/police dramas. I however black out the autopsies, I find them too dehumanizing to watch, but otherwise, I think this show rocks.
