Set during the London Blitz of 1940, “Murder on the Home Front” is a vibrant, original crime drama set in a world where people live in the moment, but also a world where criminals can use devastation to hide their darkest activities.
As the Luftwaffe drop their bombs, people are literally getting away with murder. Dr. Lennox Collins (Patrick Kennedy) is a pathologist new to murder cases, obsessed with pursuing the truth through all means available. He is often at the cutting edge of new thinking in pathology, from chemical tests to the controversial inclusion of the study of the psyche.
Molly Cooper (Tamzin Merchant) is not only the first secretary to become a pathologist, she is the first woman allowed into a very male world. All Lennox knows is that she has a strong stomach and a keen brain.
Together they discover a serial killer at large under cover of the Blitz, and Lennox has his work cut out convincing the police to have faith in his methods and theories.
