Editorial Reviews

As seen on A&E

"The U.K.’s answer to our CSI" —Oklahoma Gazette "Well paced and intriguing” —London Evening Standard (U.K.)

"Intelligent, edgy, and gripping" —The Times (U.K.) "Smart…an understated, enjoyable drama" —London Evening Standard (U.K.)

Fans of CSI will be drawn to Murder Investigation Team, which authentically profiles the gritty realities faced by the Special Crimes Unit of London’s Metropolitan Police.

From the creators of The Bill, this critically acclaimed police thriller follows an intense team of investigators led by DC Rosie MacManus (Lindsey Coulson, EastEnders) and DS Trevor Hands (Michael McKell, Emmerdale Farm). The detectives rely on both new technology and old-fashioned instinct to find those responsible for gruesome crimes.

Love triangles, family estrangements, greed, and lies lead to a series of wrong turns and dead ends, building the pressure to solve cases while the evidence is still fresh—and, sometimes, before the killer can strike again. Along the way, the investigators struggle to walk the line between professional loyalties and personal interests. Claire Higgins (Hellraiser), Kenneth Cranham (Rome), and Anthony Stewart Head (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) guest star in these final episodes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Much Better Than Season 1 April 23, 2012
Format:DVD
I watch all the British series like this one, and thought season 1 had so many problems. Too many to go into, but the constant shaking camera trick was enough to make you seasick. Season 2 is totally different, including some of the cast. Now it is first rate. I'm sure that if this series was like season 2 in the beginning, it would have continued for many more years. Too bad they got it right too late, now I want more.

5.0 out of 5 stars BETTER THAN SERIES ONE March 13, 2012
By sabu
Format:DVD
I'm so glad they decided to produce a 2nd series of this wonderful and engrossing drama series. Series two, in my opinion, has surpassed series one. It seems to contain superior scripts that blend perfectly with the superb acting. Here's hoping there's a series three.

5.0 out of 5 stars BETTER, LONGER EPISODES, SAME FAST THRILLER PACE February 6, 2012
Format:DVD
Realistic investigation struggles. Now cop stuff, plus personal issues with MIT racing to solve crime. It explodes with pace and intrigue making 4 thriller episodes filled with police action, raids, chases and arrest struggles. False leads, new suspects, and dead ends cause this team to dig in the London sewer fringe. DI Trevor (Michael McKell) is promoted to Gov while DS Rosie (Lindsey Coulson) is upgraded too. DS Purvis (Richard Hope) is the 3rd cop back. Other regulars are new to the series but keep the same velocity and thrill.

Bonus material confirms the series was shot with High-Def cameras and it matches the technology driven team assigned grisly crimes. Guest stars are included as both good and bad guys/girls. There is occasional sharp wit, but mostly sharper evidence considerations, at least with personal issues are not clouding the moment. That human side of MIT cops is a stronger focus, over Series 1. Office relationships and personal problems form side-plots that carry over from one episode to another. But each episode has its primary brutal death (graphic images) to solve.

Series 2 has four 70-minute episodes...a few guest stars are listed, only some.
SDH subtitles available
1 PHONE TAG: Trevor and team look for an ice pick killer. This and all episodes are shot through with cop jargon. The murder seems to have association with stolen mobile phones and a sordid game of phone tag. Is the victim's father's kidney need a motive? New team player, DC Sharpe (Diane Parish) must prove her worth. Guest stars Kenneth Cranham (Without Motive) and Clare Higgins proves theirs.

2 VIPER'S NEST: Did a favorite doctor jump or get pushed off the hospital roof through a skylight of the canteen?

4.0 out of 5 stars Gritty London Police Procedural February 4, 2014
Verified Purchase
Characters in this series grow on you and are pretty compelling. Plotting is contemporary. For example, the first episode involves playing an online phone tag game - only the victim really does get murdered. The pace is fast. Like the team of investigators. If you like British contemporary crime shows, you may want to sample this.

5.0 out of 5 stars fast and well acted crime show. August 11, 2012
Format:DVD
This one was series two which ran in 2005. the first 8 episodes ran in 2003. This was a spinoff from the bill. the bill ran from 1982-2011! or so. it produced more episodes over a thousand! than any other british drama ever. For some reason this never got the chance at a third series. It's very slick and fast paced with a cool rock music soundtrack. Itv would later ax many of it's biggest shows due to bankruptcy in the last few years. But at this time , they didn't give this one enough time to catch on. And unlike the bill which had tons of episodes. !,000 + ) this had only 4 hour and half eps in series two. series one had double the episode count of this one. This takes place in london in the mid zeros of course and it's fast and well produced. You can tell it was not a cheapo show. the lowest rating on here for this one is a three star. And I disagree with that. This should appeal to any fan of crime shows.And it even has subtitles if you need them. This was one of the better more realistic cop shows from the last decade out of the uk. And it's a shame it never had more of a chance. the bill isn't around either now but it had a great run at least! like taggart did.

2.0 out of 5 stars A Boring Detective Series June 23, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Murder Investigation Team was on TV for 2 seasons. The first season was better then the second season. In the second year they changed characters and the storyline.
The scripts were not well written and very boring. You felt like the writers were plucking ideals from the newsprint and trying to write a script around it. This worked really well for Law And Order because the writing was excellent. In this situation the scripts were uninteresting and did not come together. None of the main characters grabbed your attention. In recent years the quality of the British Detective Series has declined. Unfortunately the Brits have copied more and more the American Style Detective Series format.

3.0 out of 5 stars Murder Investigtion Team. June 10, 2012
By David
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
They only made two series of Murder Investigion Team in 2003 this one was much better than the first, which I found hard going. When you consider what's available now to watch of a similar nature, I can see why they pulled the plug on this one after two series. It's still worth watching, but well behind TV series, like Above Suspicion and Scott & Bailey.
