Waking the Dead: The Complete Season Six (DVD)

Chief Inspector Boyd and his team are back to reopen the file of more cold cases in this Emmy award-winning drama. Series Six sees Boyd and his team delve deep into the culture and traditions of Irish Travelers to investigate the mysterious death of a young boy drowned in a concrete pit; uncover a gruesome secret buried in the City of London around the time of Black Wednesday; and re-visit three murders once thought to be the work of a notorious serial killer, but now are under suspicion. With pressure from all sides, not least MI6, can the team shed new light on past cases to ensure that justice is done in the present?

This show which lasted nine seasons was the english cold case series , only it was much darker than our now as well cancelled series. I disagree that this only about the characters argueing. This show is the same as it always was. the lead character is a driven man who has lost everything but his job. He yells when things don't go well sure but the staff is dedicated to him. He is the father figure to the them and only in this season does Grace the mother figure of the group finally confront him about his disfunctional behaviour. WHy do they put up with him because they are a team and they know he cares. He's not a bully. The cases run from showing about how lsd destroyed people in the 1960's and it did do that , to nazi cases and much more. Each case is two episodes long and the show shouldn't have been cancelled. It wasn't done because of ratings that's for sure as this one was quite popular. WE have three more dvd sets coming , and lets hope they don't continue to only release one set a year. That would be a huge mistake as it would be 2015 before we get the final set. The acting in this one is outstanding and this series had the two newcomers from last series getting more at ease with their jobs. There is little in the way of extras on this set. But if you like dark crime dramas played out over two episodes and that's 12 eps for this set then you will enjoy this one. And this isn't a csi show , it's more grim but engaging. And finally even the lead character has to face some of his disfunction in this one.

Season six (6) of BBC's "Waking the Dead" is, per usual, so very good keeping me well entertained with its very well written, directed and sometimes very scary episodes also with its extremely good acting.

In spite of many cast changes (i.e., third new pathologist, this season), season six (6) shows "short-fused" Chief Inspector Boyd (brilliantly acted by Trevor Eve) and his Cold case investigative team solving some really nasty "cold cases" that many times have "tie-ins" with current nasty crimes. Much to my joy two (2) of the series' "old" characters and two of my favorites are still around helping Boyd solve these very horrendous "cold case" mysteries. The two returning characters that I adore are the psychologist Grace wonderfully played by Sue Johnston who is always able to keep Boyd "grounded" and functioning at his brilliant best along with super sexy and tough Spence greatly acted by Wil Johnson--he certainly gets the other characters, this season, out of some "tough spots". Again this season, the members of the "Waking the Dead" cold case team are very sure of their individual expertise in their profession and are not afraid to go "toe to toe" with their leader (Boyd) in expressing their opinions on how to solve a case. I have always loved the "knock down" arguments that they all can have. That "feature" of this series is very evident in Season six (6). By the way, the "new" pathologist is acted greatly--I like her.

All in all, I loved Season six (6) on three (3) discs with six (6) episodes that are in two (2) parts.

I have enjoyed the first six seasons of Waking the Dead, which chronicles the cases of a specialized unit of London coppers. The unit chief is played by Trevor Eve (Heat of the Sun) who resembles Victor Garber (Alias). Eve is a good actor, but he (or his director) have been developing a taste for scenery chewing over the seasons. Although Waking the Dead is certainly one of the best Brit procedurals, it has been sliding downhill a little. The whodunnit part of the show remains strong, but the interpersonal tensions of the squad have slipped into melodrama, making my review of Season Six a little less glowing than earlier seasons.

This is still a good show, but alternatives present themselves, like Case Histories, Whitechapel, Sherlock, Single-Handed, and, with a fond bow to Morse, Inspector Lewis.

The quality of the stories seems to keep slipping! Wanted to like this series it has many top notch actors, but there is too much filler material to include constant flashbacks of the same scenes over & over & over again!!!! I found myself getting extremely bored with all of the stories on this disc. Personally, I would not recommend this season!!! The first three seasons were the best and then the quality tends to go downhill from there!!!
