Editorial Reviews

“Gripping detective drama” —Daily Record (U.K.)

Philip Madoc (The Last of the Mohicans, Doctor Who) delivers an unforgettable performance as brooding detective Noel Bain in this atmospheric Welsh drama. An old-fashioned and kindhearted cop, Bain solves crimes with his unerring instinct, keen intelligence, and passion for defending the innocent. He also struggles to protect his daughter, Hannah (Ffion Wilkins), from the crime-filled world he knows too well.

Set in a Wales more bleak than picturesque, this acclaimed series has earned comparisons to Cracker and Wallander for its gritty realism and no-holds-barred storytelling. The complete collection includes all three series of feature-length episodes, with guest appearances by Ioan Gruffudd (Fantastic Four, Horatio Hornblower), John Rhys-Davies (The Lord of the Rings trilogy), David Warner (Titanic), and Siân Phillips (I, Claudius).

A strong stomach helps while viewing DCI Bain's final series. Mysteries bathed in blood, crime, grit, disgust, death, violence--but also with some rustic, rugged, Welch scenery, & touching father/daughter moments. Welch graphic crime thriller footage and engaging suspense, makes Bain (Philip Madoc--"The Rivals of Sherlock Holmes" "The Last of the Mohicans") is a crack police investigator, a widower, a father of a young girl, with the toughness of "Callan" (British thriller series). You may turn away at some of the blood and violence but never turn the set off. Who-what-how-when-where is too complex and draws the viewer to a must-find-out conclusion. His tenderness toward his daughter and the sometimes excess of episode murders resemble "Midsomer Murders" (a must hit series). Rough & gritty like "Murphy's Law".

"Contains nudity and graphic scenes" -true to the extreme! Specifically, "A MIND TO KILL SERIES 1" is abundant with violence, male and female nudity, blood, foul language, sex, mutilation, race issues, family violence, homosexuality, drug use, and other derelictions that exist alongside murders. NOT FOR KIDS or the squeamish! Unrated Welsh detective drama. But it is well written, high-suspense, thriller mystery drama.

Now for DIEhards, the dark and bloody episode details:
Series 1
...1 BLACK SILENCE: DCI Bain looks into the murder of a prostitute who witnessed a scab beating by strikers. Labor leader involved? A riff divides Bain's team with the local police, leading to a dramatic conclusion.
...2 WHITE ROCKS: Small Luke witnesses his mom beaten to death. He runs and is helped in hiding. Sick/sinister activity in this holiday park inspires secrets and killings?

4.0 out of 5 stars A mixed bag but enjoyable June 28, 2013
Verified Purchase
The collection included three years of episodes. The first two were interesting but dark and small screen which were okay but not great. The third year was awesome, now showing in full screen, excellent photography and even a more interesting cast. If there are further episodes, I am in.

5.0 out of 5 stars WONDERFUL WELSH INITIATION April 11, 2013
Verified Purchase
This product is the first I've gotten involved with Wales as a setting, and has been a remarkable initiation into the Welsh language, etc. (Not to mention the lead detective's (Phili Madoc) performance.) Mr. Madoc's interpretation is, in and of itself, as titillating as the original stories that are so unique. I'd recommend to anyone who appreciates quality stories, plots, and acting to grab this at your earliest convenience. It's a shame that Mr. Madoc is no longer with us to provide more of this "goodie".
