I couldn't wait till this episode was over.
Dani Weinberg Ph.D. CDBC
MIT provides an emphasis on real police work and human drama, rather than far fetched "super science."

Format: DVD
Sometimes gruesome, always gritty, crime sleuth team. Realistic faced investigation struggles are dramatized. All cop stuff, only a hint at MIT individual lives outside of the investigations. Episodes are filled with police action, raids, chases and arrest struggles. Clue searching moves at a fast clip with false leads, new suspects, and dead ends. This team must dig for clues in the bowels of London society. Certainly not the scenic vistas of `Midsomer Murders' series. Drugs, incest, murder, rape, prostitution, mutilation and other things are seen which are not on the tourist brochures.
A crack team with women in the forefront. 2 beautiful ambitious female MIT leads, one nail tough, one a bit softer. A bit of a British "Cagney & Lacey" but with more raw & cruel crime.
A dialogue quotation is series descriptive: "Forensics would like you to have a look at some vomit."

Episode details, 49 min each, with SUBTITLES:
1 MOVING TARGETS
DI Vivien Friend (Samantha `Sam' Spiro) heads MIT (Murder Investigation Team) in a shooting case of a police Sgt. A second victim at the scene is a credit card thief. Who was the target? How much police involvement is associated with the duel deaths? Commentary option with episode 1.

2 DADDY'S LITTLE GIRL
A dead body of a 3-year missing girl is found in concrete. DI Friend is not so sure the obvious suspect is the truth.

3 RUBISH
A boy's body (minus its heart) is found in a refuse barge. The MIT finds some distasteful clues. There's more to this murder than meets the eye...and nose.

4 READING, WRITING AND GANGBANGING
A vagrant's beating murder and a questionable teacher's suicide set the MIT looking for a connection and ultimately the solution.

Very good plots, story lines and believable characters. Enjoyed the way the team worked together. If I have a criticism with the show it would be that the dialogue could have been a little livelier. All in all, though, a thumbs up.

Format: DVD
'Murder Investigation Team' is a spin-off 'The Bill' and begins with solving the murder of Sgt. Boyden. The casting in this show show just didn't work. The 2 female leads are embarrassingly bad - no similarities to Cagney & Lacey. The supporting cast just seemed to go through the motions. It's hard to really put a finger on what was wrong with the ensemble, other than they just didn't work. The stories were gritty, but also heavy-handed and predictable. This is possibly worth a rental if you are bored, have nothing else in your queue, and want to watch an English cop show. However, there are much better shows out there, including 'The Bill.' I'd go with 'George Gently','Dalziel & Pascoe' or 'Lewis' before buying this. I own the DVD's and would love to get rid of them.

EACH EPISODE ON THIS 3 DISC SET BEGINS WITH THE DISCOVERY OF A BODY AND THE STORIES UNFOLD AS EACH PIECE OF EVIDENCE IS EXPLORED COMPLETELY BY ALL MEMBERS OF THE TEAM THAT IS LEAD BY BOTH LADIES. THEY SOMETIMES SEARCH IN THE VERY DARK,BRUTAL AREAS OF THE CITY LEAVING NO STONE LEFT UNTURNED. A SOMETIMES VIOLENT + GRITTY SERIES WITH GREAT ACTING BY ALL, ESPECIALLY THE 2 LEADING LADIES.

This series looked good on the web page, but turned out to be A Dsappointment. Background noise prohibits hearing and understanding anything most of the actors said. Everyone talks at once on top of that. The screenplay seems disjointed and caused me to be confused as to what was going on. We quit watching them after the first 2 or 3. I'm not a person who is critical for the pleasure of it. We've watched a LOT of British Mystery dvds, and have found some difficult to understand, but this series stands out in that regard.

This is a very edgy series and I enjoyed the stories and action very much. However, I'm not thrilled with the choice of actors, so I probably won't buy any further seasons.
