Editorial Reviews

Award-winning and critically acclaimed crime drama Waking the Dead returns with a dark and frightening series. With new offices in an eerie basement, a new team member who has secrets of her own and Boyd seemingly more reckless than ever, how will the Cold Case Squad survive? Stunning visual effects, a new score and ambitious stories that force the team to re-evaluate their relationships with each other making this series is deeper and darker than ever before.

It is my understanding that there is only going to be one more season of "Waking the Dead" which makes me very sad, I've grown to love this series with its very intense stories and characters--such great acting, direction and stories. Season Eight (8) certainly has all of the aforesaid attributes that has caused me to adore this series. Once again, in Season Eight (8) Boyd, as leader of a brilliant British "cold case" team, solve some very intense and frightening cases that have gone "cold" but with "tie ins" with current murders. Boyd is still very "short-fused" which leads to many battles with his team--the psychologist Grace (wonderfully acted by Sue Johnston) , the very good detective and sexy Spence (greatly acted by Will Johnson), other detectives and a pathologist. All of the members of the "Cold Case" team are more than willing to go "toe to toe" with their leader Boyd when they disagree with his "methods" in solving a case. Those heated battles are the prime reason I have admired this series for so long. Season 8 is filled with those "battles" involving the lost of a team member and also featuring the pathologist Eve--the actress that plays pathologist Eve truly gives an overwhelming performance in one story really proving that she is a superb actress. In that two part episode, Spence (as acted by Will Johnson) also shines as an actor!

Yes, there are only four (4) episodes that run about an hour and forty minutes each in Season Eight (8) instead of the usual six (6). However, because this season is so superbly written, directed and acted, I was greatly entertained.

Same great show, same price but only 4 stories compared to previous seasons. Each story has two 58-minute episodes. Don't get me wrong, this show is very much worth watching and if you enjoyed previous seasons you won't regret the effort. I just want the usual ~6 stories if they are going to charge the same price.

SPOILER ALERT!
The team is whirling with change and potential change as they move into a new location, a team member dies(this was shocking and unexpected) and another leaves.

5 stars for the show minus 1 for fewer episodes/price. Please indicate if this review was helpful.

I noticed a 1 star review and wanted to counter it. Yes Waking the Dead is one of the premier TV series from the UK. It is thoughtful and intelligent. Series 8 and it final season 9 are excellent. I have seen the UK versions of it. The criticism is not the content or the series, but release schedule for a series that already completed. Come on. Finish the releases and the series. How come the US versions are delayed by years.

We will soon run out of this series and that is too bad. These characters, Boyd, Grace, Spence, et al, are the most interesting and complex characters since Hill Street Blues. We will feel like family is missing and will be reduced to watching something much less satisfying and interesting. If you haven't seen any of Waking the Dead yet, start with the First Season and prepare for a bumpy ride!

My husband and I were fans of the earlier series of Waking the Dead and were very disappointed when the later DVDs were not Region 1 compatible any longer. Finally, I realized that an all region DVD player would solve our problem and we are back enjoying Boyd at his almost at tantrum throwing best.

Interesting new member of the team adds another interesting dynamic in the latter series.

Great action and suspense mixed with more than a few shockers. All the old favorites are back and a new member joins the team while another grows restive and plans to leave.
Michelle Dockery as one of the principles is a nice surprise for those of us Yanks who are accustomed to having seen her only as Lady Mary (Downton Abbey). Her role here gives her an opportunity to expand her range in a role that is a broad departure from Lady Mary; though I can't say I liked the ending, it was skillfully done / written, placing her character in a "role" she'd never imagined for her (character's) self. As close to a spoiler as I dare venture.
The return of my favorite villianess in this series, Linda Cummings is a very apt end to the season, filled with rapid fire action and machinations as she spars with Boyd in a game of wits and evil cunning (on her part, natch). Great stories / writing.... can hardly wait for Season 9 to arrive on my doorstep!

It's a pity, but this Dutch Pal import has all episodes shortened by approx 10 minutes. The cutting has been done "gently", but leaves some strange ellipses.
No subtitles other than Dutch ones.
Otherwise good quality.
