Tv Season Info

Series 1 introduces Philadelphia medical examiner Megan Hunt (Dana Delany), a neurosurgeon who changes careers when an accident leaves her unable to operate. While investigating various cases with her partner, Peter Dunlop (Nicholas Bishop), her work style often clashes with the people she encounters on the job, including boss Dr. Kate Murphy (Jeri Ryan) and detective Bud Morris (John Carroll Lynch). Unfortunately for Megan, her personal relationships don't fare much better, as she has difficulty dealing with daughter Lacey (Mary Mouser), ex-husband Todd (Jeffrey Nordling) and mother Joan (Joanna Cassidy).

Critic Reviews for Body of Proof Season 1

All Critics (19) | Top Critics (13)

Body of Proof for the most part plays dead within the realm of plausible crime-solving, interesting characters and assumptions that Delany's once-promising career would do more than wither on this vine.

Top Critic

It's too bad Body of Proof is so unambitious and, at times, clumsy, as it goes through the motions of solving murder mysteries.

Mar 29, 2011 | Full Review…

The result is a formula procedural that's too often creatively timid and emotionally disconnected.

Top Critic

Body of Proof would be interesting enough if it were just Quincy with better legs. Add the other elements and you have something worth checking out at 10 o'clock.

Mar 29, 2011 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Nothing would make me happier than to see Delany, who's one of my favorite actresses, starring in a smart network drama that gave her the kind of range Laurie gets in House or Falco and Collette get on Showtime. If only Body of Proof were that show.

Lofty pronouncements tend to make their speakers sound silly.

Mar 29, 2011 | Rating: 4/10 | Full Review…

You know those promotional logos that networks sometimes put in a corner of the television screen? They're highly annoying, but... perhaps ABC should consider putting the words "You are stupid" on the screen whenever it airs Body of Proof.

Mar 29, 2011 | Full Review…

Body of Proof seems less likely to drive viewers away, at least not viewers content with whodunit crime procedurals.

Mar 29, 2011 | Full Review…

Body of Proof doesn't break any new ground as a procedural and has more than enough hokey moments to make you look elsewhere.

Nov 13, 2018 | Full Review…

She's got a lack of FEELINGS and FRIENDSHIPS and way too much in the way of CAREERISM... But damned if Delany doesn't make all of this at least palatable, if not actively enjoyable.
