DNA (2004) Review
(More customer reviews)I've always been a fan of Tom Conti and this series reflects not only his excellent acting but the complex character he portrays. From the first episode I was hooked and only wish there had been more episodes. Conti portrays a coroner who, due to an emotional breakdown, had been encouraged to leave his post, thus becoming an author. His personal life is a mess; his wife is cheating, his son procrastinates as to his future and Conti becomes personally involved in a murder case. His illness rears its ugly head and he and those around him wonder if he is involved in this murder. If you like fast-paced complex murder mysteries, DNA should not be missed. Welcome back, Conti, please don't stop.

Forensics expert Joe Donovan uses science to snare killers-and save himself. Award-winning actor Tom Conti (Shirley Valentine; Reuben, Reuben) stars as Joe Donovan, an accomplished but troubled criminologist who returns from a mental breakdown to lead Manchesters crack Forensic Investigations Unit. Called in to consult on a murder case that suspiciously resembles the one that drove him into near madness years ago, Donovan redeems his reputation and rediscovers his devotion to the job. Yet his professional dedication bleeds into his personal life, alienating his wife (Samantha Bond, Die Another Day, Tomorrow Never Dies) but appealing to his son (Ryan Cartwright, The Grimleys), who wants to follow in his fathers footsteps. Packed with fascinating procedural details and wickedly captivating plot twists, every episode of DNA delivers edge-of-your-seat suspense. But with its complex characterizations, it also explores the human dimension of the scientists who solve crimes.
