This cut out scene causes a stir

Boerne and Thiel investigated together for the 39th time in the “crime scene”. It was a special commitment for Jan Josef Liefers’ role, because there was a plagiarism allegation against him. And that’s exactly why there were discussions.

Jan Josef Liefers and Axel Prahl The investigator duo Boerne and Thiel ended up in a weird community with a hippie touch, construction trailers and alpacas on Sunday evening. In “Rhythm and love”, the young nude model Maik Koslowski, a member of the spiritually influenced commune “Erlenhof”, was found dead and the Münster cult investigators had their hands full.

In addition to the detective work, it was primarily a personal challenge for forensic doctor Prof. Dr. Dr. Karl-Friedrich Boerne, who took up a lot of space in the Sunday crime thriller. There was talk of the threat of plagiarism proceedings against the vain professor. Has Boerne copied from a well-known colleague during a research project? And who is this colleague anyway?

Prof. Dr. Michael Tsokos from the Charité plays a guest role

A certain Professor Thomsen is mentioned but not shown. A silhouette of the gentleman can only be seen in one tiny shot when he visits Boerne in forensic medicine and clears up the allegations. It was originally planned differently, as it turned out. Because: Prof. Dr. Michael Tsokos, head of forensic medicine at the Charity in Berlin, has opted for a guest role at “crime scene“Get hired – free of charge. But Tsokos was on the set of the ARD crime thriller for a bigger appearance and played more than this one mini-scene.

“Where does censorship begin?” The professor begins an Instagram post on Sunday and explains how the curious cut came about. “Ok, it was not high acting and not comparable with the main actors of the Münster crime scene, but that is not the reason,” said Tsokos, who then reflects the decision of the broadcaster: his series “Autopsy”, which is shown on private television and also with Jan Josef Liefers is to be blamed. ARD only found out about the production afterwards and wanted to prevent involuntary advertising for the format.

At first, the Charité professor showed no understanding for this. He complains: “Seriously, that’s the reason! Which of course was not told to my face, but (cowardly?) Was communicated from the back.” And it gets even more dramatic in tone: “Especially in a time like today, in which potential opinion-making of public broadcasters is repeatedly questioned (and also has to be questioned!) So that the GEZ-financed broadcasters do not finally degenerate into a kind of state television – which, as is well known, we have already had in a German state – I consider acting like that dangerous. “

A guest role, a shortened version and a renowned professor who speaks of “state television”: Seldom has an edited “crime scene” scene caused such a stir. But after about three hours the general tension subsides and Michael Tsokos appeases on Instagram with a new post.

He shows the screenshot of a WDR response and adds in his comment: “WDR reacted quickly and I give credit to those responsible for not neglecting anything here.” Tsokos turns to some commentators, however, who had put him in the “right corner” after his statements against the public broadcaster. That is “really the very last of some who commented on my last post accordingly”.

“You can’t please all these blind fish, who are completely blinded anyway,” he writes in conclusion and declares that he will now speak again primarily about forensic medicine. He had probably imagined his first “Tatort” appearance differently.
