Bonekickers, Season 1

Description

Each spine-tingling episode is a window through to an exciting period of history, including the excavation of murdered 18th century slaves, the possible discovery of the True Cross, the looting of Babylonian relics from the Iraq War and the exploration of secret chambers underneath famous Roman baths. Using state of the art techniques and old-fashioned digger’s instinct, Gillian and her team — forensic expert and her former lover Dr Ben Ergha (Adrian Lester), the brilliant but lecherous Professor Gregory 'Dolly' Parton (Hugh Bonneville) and eager young intern Viv Davis (Gugu-Mbatha Raw) — piece together incredible stories and conspiracy theories from the past.

The worst show the BBC have produced in a long time

(This review is based on episode one) If there were negative stars this would get about three. I still can't get past the abysmal script -it's awful. Then there is the props - the worst of which was probably the wobbly swords the baddies were carrying, although the ancient manuscript with bright white pages probably ran it a close second. But I really wouldn't care about the inaccuracies and completely unbelievable archaeology (digging at night - hoiking valuable artefacts straight out of the ground - then leaving them unpreserved lying around the 'lab'), if the plot, story and script (yes I still can't get over it) were not pants. The beheading scene could have been from a Python movie. And at the end when the team have survived a life threatening encounter, people have died and priceless relics have been lost - it's off down the pub. Well, cut out the middle man, save yourself some time, and go straight down the pub without watching this.

Very bizarre programme??

Well I am guilty of watching the first 2 episodes and have to say its a bit strange. They start off with a sort of cross between Time Team and Waking The Dead and then towards the end of the programme it suddenly changes to a Indiana come The Mummy extravaganza. It gets so far fetched that it becomes laughable. I mean the 1st episode we are supposed to believe that they suddenly find themselves in a secret chamber filled with crosses and one of them is supposed to be the cross that Jesus was crucified on...COME ON...Can we be even slightly realistic. I cannot bring myself to watch any more of them. For a supposedly adult themed drama its got more far fetched comedy moments than Blackadder, Open All Hours and Only Fools, put together. Miss it or regret it forever!!!!

Fantasic New Drama Series From The BBC

Although the title and the bad press for the first showing of Bonekickers due to the beheading scene, might have put some people off. I would recomenrd this fantasic new drama series from the BBC to anyone. The storylines are first class and so is the acting. Think The Da Vinci Code mixed with Indiana Jones but with a female and you've be on the right track.
