One day, forensic pathologist Dr Keith Simpson asks a keen young journalist to be his secretary. Molly Cooper, although none too keen on being a secretary, is intrigued to find out exactly what goes on behind a mortuary door.
'Miss Molly' quickly becomes indispensible to Dr Simpson as he meticulously pursues the truth. Accompanying him from the morgues to some gruesome crime scenes, Molly observes and assists as he uncovers the secrets that the victims keep.
Molly's character is based on the real Molly, Molly Lefebure, on whose memoirs of these early forensic days the series is based.
A very good programme to watch.
The style of the show is colorful, bold and loud. It completely throws you because there's nothing quite like this on TV in this era. So watch this with no preconception's and you'll enjoy.
The team doesn't flow as well as the Bletchley lot or Foyle but they are a great cast nonetheless.
