Premise
Brilliant neurosurgeon experiences trauma, turns to the dead art of medical examining, still brilliant, but more bitter and sad and haunted.

Primary cast
Dana Delany (China Beach, Desperate Housewives) is Megan Hunt, genius tortured by her personal losses and her recent trauma. Also, bit of a bitch.
Jeri Ryan (Melrose Place, Star Trek: Voyager)  is Kate Murphy, chief medical examiner, Megan’s boss but not her enemy.
John Carroll Lynch (Big Love, Carnivale, K-Ville, How to Make It in America) is homicide detective Bud Morris, Thorn In Side TM.
Sonja Sohn (The Wire) is Bud’s new partner and she wants to be loyal to him, but the sisterhood is powerful.
Nicholas Bishop (Past Life, McLeod’s Daughters) is Peter Dunlop, also wounded but brilliant investigator. Do I sense come-here-go-‘way sexual tension?

But what do I know anyway? After NOT having seen the pilot I predict…
I, like most of TV victims, like puzzle solving. This medical/criminal procedural sounds cookie-cutter, but I like this type of cookie. Plus I love Dana Delany (although not even her nasty-nice turn could keep me watching Desperate Housewives). I will watch. I expect it not to be a chore. If you are so inclined as you watch Tuesday night, Ms. Delany herself will be live tweeting, @DanaDelany

Other reviews
Nine critics so far give Body of Proof an average rating of 56 out of 100.
