Every so often, Netflix releases a new series that becomes the viral phenomenon of the moment.

Produced in Great Britain, the series blends the best elements from many other Netflix fictions: period drama, science fiction, mystery, action, and compelling characters. Behind Bodies are Paul Tomalin, its creator, along with Marco Kreuzpaintner and Haolu Wang. As for the actors, the main protagonists include Stephen Graham, Derek Riddell, Emily Barber, and Will Merrick. But what is Bodies about exactly?

The series focuses on four detectives who live in four different eras: specifically, 1890, 1941, 2023, and 2053. Simultaneously, these four detectives discover the corpse of the same victim in the Whitechapel district of London. When this happens, their investigations intertwine, leading them to the center of a mysterious conspiracy that spans over 150 years.

Like a mix of Doctor Who, Penny Dreadful, and the story of Jack the Ripper, it is a series that seeks elegance through a journey through the past, present, and even the future of the United Kingdom. Therefore, it is a family-friendly fiction that appeals to various audience demographics… and everyone seems very pleased after watching it.

Although the reviews for the series are somewhat mixed, and not everyone is convinced that it is a new major success for Netflix, the numbers speak for themselves, making it clear that this is a series that they will have to take into serious consideration for the future.
