Murder on the Home Front

Set during the London Blitz of 1940, Murder on the Home Front is a vibrant, original crime drama. This is a world where people live life in the moment. It is also a world where criminals can use the blackout and devastation to hide their darkest activities. As the Luftwaffe drop their bombs, below people are literally getting away with murder. Dr Lennox Collins (Patrick Kennedy) is a pathologist new to murder cases, obsessed with pursuing the truth through all means available. He is often at the cutting edge of new thinking in pathology from chemical tests to the controversial inclusion of the study of the psyche. Molly Cooper (Tamzin Merchant) is not only the first secretary to a pathologist, she is the first woman allowed into a very male world. All Lennox knows is that she has a strong stomach, 60 words a minute and a keen brain. When together they discover a serial killer at large under cover of the Blitz, Lennox has his work cut out convincing the police to have faith in his methods and theories.

Full of suspense, tons of twists and turns. London in the middle of World War II was a dangerous place filled with threatening East End characters, possible spies everywhere and corpses stacking up at unbelievable rate. This has a huge potential as a mini series. Who do we talk to?

More episodes, please!

In addition to being a good procedural (good job, writers and actors), it blends in history and science in digestible bites. Potentially equal to or better than Foyles War series, imho.

Great British Drama
Review by Oregonian G. on 07/17/20 review stating Great British Drama
Excellent story line, believable characters, time period costumes and sets. A little humor helps offset the drama. Highly recommend this one. Wish it could be a series for more of the same.
