Stephen Graham, a true British icon, is set to feature in Netflix’s latest drama Bodies. The actor featured in a BBC series Time, last year alongside Yorkshireman, Sean Bean and it seems this new drama is set to be as intense as Graham’s recent work.
Hull’s Old Town was transformed last month for the filming of the new crime drama set in London. It is being used as the backdrop for the series based on Si Spencer’s novel of the same name which follows four detectives from four eras investigating the same murder.
This isn’t Graham’s first link to Hull, he featured in the five-part series set in Hull The North Water, which also starred Colin Farrell and Jack O’Connell.
The bafta-nominated Graham will feature in the tense new drama Bodies on Netflix which is set to be released soon.
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.
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.”
Starring alongside the Liverpool actor will be Shira Haas, The Queen’s Gambit’s Jacob Fortune-Llyod, and Amaka Okafor from The Responder.
No release date has been given for the Netflix series Bodies, but we will keep our eyes peeled.
