So I never review, but this is getting a lot of hate & I’m honestly not sure why. No, it’s not a masterpiece, but it’s enjoyable enough for what it is, I’m just over halfway through and I’m pretty sure I’m going to finish this one. The cast and plot is solid, not stellar but not unbearable either. The cases thus far are interesting, nothing particularly clever, but nothing disappointing either. The 2nd leads are decent enough & I’m actually enjoying the main leads relationship so far, it’s not as heavy handed or blatant as some comments have suggested, a bit of slow burner, but it fits with the characters and story. We haven’t gotten very far in the over arching story of Dr Win’s mother yet, but I’m definitely looking forward to it.

This review may contain spoilers

not the worst dr qin series but editor sleepy worst editing

i have watched dr qin 1, 2 3, silent evident, movie red wedding
overall, Dr. Qin is a character who has a past trauma ,, can from his girlfriend, mother or father,or etc

the investigation crime genre drama like this the most important thing is the theme of the case, and the method to solving te case perfectly, and I don't really like it if the investigatuon drama is censored, for this drama other than the corpse which is very pathetic they are not too censored, so I know what they show ,for case 1, very sad it's censored but from what they say I can google it(if you dare to look)

this drama is NOT the worst of the dr qin series, to be honest the themes of the cases they show are quite interesting and solving cases always have a plot twist, but for the main case it looks very stupid, from episode 9, I already realized who the culprit was, but they still postponed it, and continued change their statement, maybe the scriptwriter or director forgot alreadt made plot A But changed to plot B in later

I think, when editing this drama, the editors were very sleepy, there were so many loophole, they made the story can chain all clues, but many statements they didn't show and only mentioned it after and kept changing the statment (not include reconstruction, they have a lot of imagine reconstruction),most clearly happened in case 2 in episode 9,, it was clearly said before that the killer threw the delete button into the river,, but they changed the statement by saying the killer helped liubing from river to put the delete button in his hand (ep 9, 21:58) ,, but in ep 28 they change again the button was throw into the river

the cast acting not very bad, but they use stuntman the scene really obvious,, lintao, qinming,,

Qin Ming, l a person with cleanliness, maybe not the worst? he just like clean but not OCD, except the first 2-3 episodes there are no scenes that show he very like clean

An Ran, she is beauty in this drama,her acting not bad,,

case theme list:
1. case 1, giant corpse,, surogacy
2. case 2,, death live streaming
3. case 3 wax corpse
4. case 4, rape and murder
5. case 5 drown child
6. case 6 skeleton case
7. case 7 main case
the delete button appeared very suddenly, from ep 9, they already know that the deletebutton has some connection with "zhangyuxin" but they keep delaying, arguing that there is no solid evidence, dr qin is who linking liubing's death to zhangyuxin, but when ep 26, qinming said"i know her, she is one of my mother patient" from ep 9 HE ALREADY KNOW HER! why he said like he didnt know her before?
It's very stupid if they already know for who the murder happened for(because of ZYX), but they don't look for the killer from the people around them

""review per episode by me ""

#ep 1,, Are pickpockets stupid? already knows his friend has been arrested, instead of running away, he keeps stays until they realizes his whereabouts

#ep 2,, family member told to recognize the victim's body, the swollen corpse, the younger brother when he saw it immediately cried? seriously? How can the swollen corpse be recognized at a glance?

#ep 3,,, 8:10 ,, why i feel the conversation between lin and qin not connected? why connect with gen ? like two topic
18:38 , lintao looks very hard holding the pressure in his hands for CPR, so fake ,very obvious

LYS when he work overtime he takes zolpidem, its a meds for insomnia? by means helping people to sleep? , isn't it wrong? someone who works overtime takes helping sleeping meds? not the meds helping him stay wake

#ep 6,, 9:27 ,, an ran eat tobiko sushi, tobiko sushi use fish eggs right? but qinmin use his logic said its crab's egg

#ep 8, from when leiming become related to xujiang? hire murder?! ,, didn't xujiang say he just a debt collector?! why Leiming suddenly became a murder hirer, if he wanted to become a murder hirer why did he ride motorcycles following behind them?

Leiming and Liubing's fight video when band was taken from the top, who took it?

#ep 9, WHY THE DELETE BUTTON SUDDENLY APPEAR? from the start it was never discussed AT ALL!

and from when the delete button releted with qinming mom drowned? his uncle who has the case file doesn't understand when qinming given the delete button to him, his uncle ask for proofing the connection between the delete and qinming mom death

#ep 10, 8:05 , raining, use children umbrella ,narrow,,, did they forget to bring their brains? or the buildings at their right and left is a shadow? or their eyes left at home? they just walk on the building shop terrace so they don't get too exposed to the rain

30:16 ,zheng hao said, "are you not the waiter here?",, and she reply "i have learn violin for 4 year ",, does that answer make sense?

# ep13 ,25:10 ,, horse farm security said the CCTV recordings only keep recordings for 1 week but when asked about CCTV recordings on May 23, which is 2 months ago, the recordings are still stored, the statement is contradictory

#ep 14,, 15:27 ,, shen li said, he brought the corpse back her home, and use phone cable with zhenghao fingerprint to tie the victim,, how can he know that the cable have zhenghao fingerprint?

ep 18,, Masisi's mother want to divorce? does she think she's really cool? she just want to create a new masisi for her 2nd child

ep 21,, the murderer said want to make it look as if qing hua was killed by leilei's kidnapper,, by means of directly directing the police to rescue leilei first to catch qinghua's killer, catching himself? is he stupid? Moreover, the murder happened around the murderer, did he think the police were stupid? not make a sense

ep 25,, qin ming go to see an ran and anran
directly contacted captain li,, they shouldn't be that far from qin ming, but why did they go to an ran's room for so long? even they go there by running ?

30:18 ,,, when anran pushing lintao's wheelchair,,, the news reporting yunxiang couple got attack by someone,, but the news happen before the police know about linyun,, linyun report attacked in ep 26 24:37,, i think they got attack twice but they dont look like got attack twice

ep 26 ,, ep 9 qinming who told people to check about zhangyuxin (liubing case) but he was shocked when he found out that zhanghua had a relationship with zhangyuxin?


the question i want to ask:

1. ‎xiao ma jia is who? in case 2 they looking for him/her but not say who is he/she
2. where xuezi go when she missing? her employees said when she came back she was always happy? I thought this was part of the clue that should be investigated, but not
3. if main killer want revenge why not start long time ago?, but 10 years later? why did he say the time has not come yet, what is he waiting for?

Series for strong minded people

I really enjoyed watching the series.
it was fun and interesting to watch this version of Medical Examiner Dr. Qin, and this would have been the best version of and only if An Ran’s character was written in a more better way.
I found her character to be a bit annoying. apart from that, other things were amazing to watch and also fun to see such a mystery drama after a long time. The story was amazing, it put me on the edge till the very end.
The other characters were will written as well.
I would highly recommend watching this drama..!
But be careful because there is a lot of gore and negativity which might not be easy for everyone or soft hearted people to handle

How does it feels...

Even though everything was perfect the romantic development between ML and FL was slow. Thus, the mood goes off. If you watch it you might feel a little boring but if you are a thrill lover and also like twist then it is definitely a good choice.

The acting and character development was good. Twists and thrills were perfect. The story developed in a good way and also mysterious feeling will made you feel excited through the end. The acting sometime left a bad taste but the over all acting was good. As for music, it created a very mysterious impression through the whole series. The vibes were perfect. The set up and cast was also good.

This Qin Ming is the worst of the worst!

This mind reader is the worst of the worst Qin Ming I’ve ever watched. The large scenes of romance between Qin Ming and An Ran ruined the plot of the suspense drama. Its genre should be changing from suspense to romance and its ending theme song “love you love you love you” for suspense now will be suitable to its new genre of romance, Most of actors and actresses lack of acting skills, they can only read the scripts, but they can’t act. They have the problems of expression on their faces. Especially Qin Ming played by Zhang Yao, something wrong with him, his acting skills in Love in Between were great, but in this Qin Ming were terrible. And his short haircut makes his face looks like a teenager while Qin Ming character should be mature.

The Criminal Suspense has changed into Love Romance drama!

I have to give 1 star, but not for drama, for my review so it can be posted.

As soon as the Medical Examiner Dr Qin’s the mind reader has been broadcasted, the audience who loved criminal suspense drama were very exited to watch it, but then they became very disappointed after watching 8 episodes. They felt that they’ve been cheated by the producer of the drama, they didn’t get what they expected.
The emotional scenes occupied more spaces than the suspense scenes and most of the scenes are illogical.

Qin Ming, played by Zhang Yao’s setting is a high-IQ forensic doctor, a new graduated student. He is not familiar with the world and does things in a straight-forward manner, which is a very test of acting skills.
As a new forensic doctor graduated student, Qin Ming seems to be on the hook, and he can actually tell when the thief falls down with the naked eye. After the thief fell down to the ground, he directly went up to the operation with a pen and alcohol, ignoring the risk of postoperative infection. Qin Ming, a new forensic doctor graduated student became a magic doctor in seconds. Not only is the story old-fashioned, but this exaggerated theatrical treatment is a bit outdated today.
Qin Ming claimed to be obsessed with cleanliness, he had to wipe his hands with a wet wipe when shaking hands. But, he touched the skin of Lin Tao when he took Lin Tao’s hand off his shoulder during dinner. He didn’t use a wet wipe and didn’t even go washing his hands. When Qing Ming was drowned, An Ran gave Qing Min emergency first-aid mouth-to-mouth. After Qing Min woke up, he knew his mouth touching An Ran’s mouth, the two warmed up at night because of the mouth-to-mouth respiration. An Ran dug a spoon of ice cream for Qing Min with the spoon she had eaten ice cream, Qing Min who was obsessed with cleanliness eating the ice cream in that spoon. An Ran was stunned after Qin Ming ate the ice cream she gave to him because; An Ran ate that spoon, and Qing Min actually ate her spoon!

Lin Tao, a policeman played by Peng Chuyue had to stand still shouting at Qing Min instead of going after the thief who stole the mobile phone. Lin Tao took action only after Qin Ming stabbed him down, and he didn't look anxious at all, and he seemed to be joking when he questioned Qin Ming. He’s joking, he’s spitting and he’s confusing all the times. Lin Tao, not only did not reflect the qualities of a professional criminal policeman should have, but also infinitely magnified the shortcomings of Lin Tao's characters. And the whole police station seems to run in private by the Lin Tao’s big family.

An Ran, played by Tang Min, a graduated forensic doctor should be intelligent, but she acted like a brainless young girl. She knocked on the door in pajamas and brushed her teeth to wake up Qin Ming. She entered Qin Ming’s room without consent and she was stunned after seeing his fruit? She went to investigate the crime scenes alone at night without using her phone to call anyone to know. Although she was out of danger, she made a big mistake by investigating the criminal case alone at night. Director Chen did not punish for her mistake because Qing Min took all the blames defending her action. Director Chen even gave Qin Ming face and praised the two, telling them to have a love romance half day off. When the two returned home, An Ran’s mother was worried, and the whole family was anxious. Qin Ming became the scapegoat again, a contain of water for An Ran’s disaster relief was poured on the Qin Ming’s face.
An Ran’s family held a thank-you ceremony to thank Qin Ming for saving An Ran. An Ran’s father and Qin Ming became brothers and had to drink a bowl of wine together. Qin Ming was reluctantly given a sip to Lin Tao, but he still drunk falling down from up stairs. An Ran carried Qin Ming’s body who had a plaster cast on his foot, suddenly she looked at her watch worrying about the urgency of her task, ignored completely about her priority task carrying Qin Ming in her arm, let go Qing Min falling down from the stairs again. If Qing Min was an 80 years old patient, he could have his bones broken or die from falling the stairs. An Ran did not rush to pick him up, just stunned looking at Qing Min and the two looked at each other in their eyes from distance. An Ran said more than once that their town was "a small place”, but look at the the police station, the building is quite big. A big house, big room, big yard, big family many aunts, uncles, cousins and cousines sitting together in a big dinning table and everyone in the big family speaks Chinese with a different accent because actors and actresses came from a different region. Luo Qi, a fashion witch said that she participated in Fashion Week in Longfan City and she should have stayed at the Longfan luxury Hotel. It can be seen that Longfan City is a relatively backward township, but it can host a large-scale fashion activities such as a Fashion Week.
An Ran spoke out that she respected Qin Ming and believed everything of Qin Ming. But when she saw the electric shock box in Qin Ming's room, she didn’t ask Qin Ming for the reason why did he have the electric shock in his room, but turned around and reported Qin Ming. The problem is that An Ran, an intelligent forensic doctor acted so brainless all the times, no responsibility and belief in wearing a police badge.

Medical Examiner Dr Qin: the Mind Reader solved the support crime cases in 26 episodes, but solved the main case of Qin Ming’s mother murder case only in 2 episodes. Four forensic doctors and two policemen are in love in the police station during the crime suspense investigation. The love cases solved faster than the criminal cases and needed the love cases to solve the criminal cases. The horse ridings, the bike ridings, and some emotional scenes are likely the TVB Hong Kong styles, the British styles. The soundtracks of 2 emotional theme songs: Hate and love « Between » and Love You, love you, love you « Time Answers » the lyrics are mixing in Chinese and English languages really got nothing to do with the crime suspense investigation drama at all. The crime suspense soundtracks should be the suspense background music such as synthesizers and strings action instrumental intense, nightmare or panic music background instruments!
Some crimes scenes are not detailed enough. The real murderer was the boss of Chef Zhang’s family. After the criminal investigation was over, Qin Ming became a normal person and at the end, he officially announced his love relationship with An Ran, as the audience who complained that criminal suspense has changed into love romance drama.

The presentation of surrogacy, mistresses, love PUA, workplace bullying, father, mother, children, son, daughter, internet violence, the electric shock etc…and the supporting roles are average. However, such a story that will inevitably attract attention is buried by the protracted plot and overly lengthy emotional lines.

This new modern Qin Ming’s mind reader mosaic pictures in ancient arts played back to the ancient times where forensic doctors can wear the police uniforms and investigated crime as policemen, but they appeared in the modern times. In modern times today, forensic doctors can’t wear the police uniforms and can’t investigate crime as policemen anymore, the forensic chemists, forensic pathologists or forensic doctors don’t do detective work in the field and detectives don’t spend time in the laboratory examining evidence, these are two separate arms of law enforcement. 

This new modern Chinese Medical Examiner Dr. Qin: The Mind Reader ressembles to the British movie’s Sherlock Holmes: The Hound of the Baskervilles in the 19th century. Except Holmes and Watson were mature, independent and they had no love romance relationship. They travelled by train together from London to the Baskervilles to investigate a mystery murder of Dr. James Mortimer’s friend. Detective Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John Watson focused only their duties. Watson to collect the evidences causing the death and technical analysis in laboratory. Holmes to investigate the mystery murder in the field. Their professional detective and doctor’s duties became the world famous of mystery murder criminal investigation which translated into many languages included the Chinese language. It’s possible that Qin Ming’s mind reader copied some ideas from the Hound of the Baskervilles?

In conclusion:
The 4 main lead young actors and young actresses played the roles pretending so hard from new graduated students to become magic professionals in seconds that make illogical. Chinese graduated doctors still need to be trained by professional before going to work by their owns and they can’t wear the police uniforms, do detective and the police works in the fields.
Producer, director and screenwriter got to know, making drama is like making food.
Making drama, you got to tell the truth to the audience, what kind of genre the drama you’re making, what extra scenes you’re adding, write clearly the genre of your drama. You got to be awarded of the audience who dislike love romance in the plot of criminal suspense drama. Director Shi Lei in his interview promised to respect the audience, but he didn’t.
Making food, you got to tell the truth of your ingredients you’re putting in your food, write clearly the ingredients on your labels before advertising and selling to the consumer. You got to be awarded of the consumer with food allergies.
The producer of Medical Examiner Qin Ming’s Mind Reader should be fined by China’s SAMR for at least RMB 7.22 million (US$1.08 million) for false making the genre of drama, false advertising and violating advertising Chinese’s laws: Criminal Suspense has changed into Love Romance drama. And the disappointed audience need their money back from Youku Suspense.
