Bodies was created by Paul Tomalin and is based on a DC comic of the same name and a graphic novel by Si Spencer.
It tells the story of four detectives from different time periods in 1890, 1941, 2023 and 2053.
But it turns out that they have all discovered the same body on a London side street and must work together to solve the murder.
Bringing the truth to light… is a matter of time.
