I've watched this British series several times over the years and I never tire of Amanda Burton as the demanding, know-it-all, on-her-way-to-be chief medical examiner. You'll never tire of watching her put her outdated male colleagues in their place. These guys could be living quite happily in the 19th century. They seem definitely not to have noticed that women are invading the quiet, smelly halls of the morgue. The plots are pretty sophisticated for 1996. And the forensics are adequate, but it is 1996, so don't expect too much CSI-level pyrotechnics.
One thing this series does very, very well, and it has nothing to do with whether or not it is dated -- unlike some newer police/pathologist procedurals, Amanda Burton's extended family and her difficulties with them, and theirs with her, form a seamless part of each plot. Her young nephew is always sticking his nose in where he isn't required. Burton's long-suffering sister really has had a less exciting and profitable career because she, of necessity, had to care for their aging mother. Burton is seen as the family member who has made it big, but who has also walked over and across others, including family, in order to achieve material and career success. These issues seem a little dated in this context, but it's extremely well done. Also check out Amanda Burton in another series called Commander. Silent Witness, of the two, is my favorite, however.
