What if you weren’t the first police detective to discover the body? Four detectives. Four timelines. One body, watch the teaser trailer for Netflix police procedural series Bodies.

Intriguing twist to the murder mystery genre which comes from the pages of Si Spencer’s graphic novel of the same name. The graphic novel was published away back in 2015 and Torchwood’s Paul Tomalin is the 8 part series.

Four detectives, living in four different eras, find the body of the same murder victim in London’s Whitechapel. They soon come to realise their investigations have them central to a mysterious conspiracy spanning over a 150 years.

Stephen Graham is Elias Mannix a politician based in current day London who seems to be possible prime suspect. The detectives from each era are Kyle Soller, Jacob Fortune-Lloyd, Amaka Okafor and Shira Haas all different eras – 1890, 1941, 2023 and 2053. Will they all unlock the conspiracy that has plagued the investigation for 150 years?

Four detectives. Four timelines. One body. Based on the mind-bending graphic novel by Si Spencer, Bodies is a police procedural with a twist. When a body – the same body – is found on Longharvest Lane in London’s East End in 1890, 1941, 2023 and 2053, one detective from each period must investigate. As connections are drawn across the decades, the detectives soon discover their investigations are linked, and an enigmatic political leader – Elias Mannix (Stephen Graham) – becomes increasingly central. Did he have a part to play in the murder? Or is something far more sinister at play? To solve the mystery, our four detectives must somehow collaborate and uncover a conspiracy spanning over 150 years.

Netflix will launch all episodes of Bodies on 19th October.
