Stephen Graham features in the new trailer for Netflix drama Bodies, which was filmed in Hull last year. The new murder mystery series examines a dead body that is found in four separate time periods as Graham plays an enigmatic political leader.
This isn’t Graham’s first link to Hull, he featured in the five-part series set in Hull The North Water, which starring alongside Colin Farrell and Jack O’Connell.
Hull’s Old Town was transformed last summer for the filming of the new crime drama set in London. The stunning buildings made for the perfect backdrop for the capital city.
Spanning 160 years, the novel is divided into four different detective stories taking place in different eras of London, so it will be interesting to see how it has been adapted for the screen.
In the trailer we see DS Hasan, played by actor Amaka Okafor. The detective is confused by the case after she finds the body in 2023 – even more so when she learns of the eerie similarities between two previous murders.
Elias Mannix, played by Graham, informs her character that the “body is from the past, present, and the future.”
Mannix says ominously later in the trailer, “It’s hard to grasp, isn’t it?… But I’m going to tell you everything. It’s going to blow your mind.”

The synopsis for the upcoming Netflix series reads: “A murder in Whitechapel. Four different detectives are trying to solve the murder in different time periods: 1890s overachiever Edmond Hillinghead, dashing 1940s adventurer Karl Whiteman, kickass female 2010s Detective Sergeant Shahara Hasan, and Maplewood, an amnesiac from post-apocalyptic 2050, who brings a haunting perspective.
“Together, the four set out to uncover a conspiracy spanning 150 years.”
