Peaky Blinders' Stephen Graham Stars in New Netflix Mystery

Netflix's freshly baked offering, a murder mystery series boasting the notable star power of Stephen Graham, known for his role in 'Peaky Blinders', has certainly made a strong impression. Freshly released on October 19, this time-hopping detective narrative has rapidly grabbed attention, scoring a 71% rating on Rotten Tomatoes and getting showered with four-star ratings from various media outlets.

Critics are quick in their applause. Dan Fienberg, from The Hollywood Reporter and one of the critics on Rotten Tomatoes, finds the show to be a delightful blend of the absurdly amusing and the outright ridiculous. He believes that the audacious high-concept narrative is regularly amplified by an exceptional cast and creative production quality spanning multiple time periods. Kate Sánchez of ButWhyTho echoes this sentiment, deeming the show as a proficient exploration of people, places, and time.

Adding to the chorus of admiration, The Guardian, which awarded the series four stars, paints an intense picture of the show. According to them, the Netflix original is ambitious, filled with tension, and has explosive sequences. They elaborate that the show confounds genre definition with its thrilling whodunnit structure that employs time travel and follows four detectives investigating a single murder across different eras. The Guardian also emphasizes the excellent value that this series offers.

Netflix, which released the trailer for 'Bodies' very close to its release, describes the series as a captivating thriller with an intriguing concept of time-slipping. It follows four detectives across four separate timescales, probing into a single murder case. The detectives need to alter the trajectory of Britain's future by cracking this murder case that has already significantly affected history.

The storyline draws inspiration from the graphic novel by Si Spencer. Fans of the original piece will be pleased to hear that according to The Standard, the show remains faithful to the original plot. This fidelity to the novel ensures that fans will not be grappling with continuity issues.

At the helm of the direction is Paul Tomalin. The cast brims with talent, comprising Jacob Fortune-Lloyd, Shira Haas, Amaka Okafor, and Kyle Soller. They share the stage with Stephen Graham, who has previously exhibited his acting prowess in 'Boiling Point' and 'This is England'.
