5.0 out of 5 stars Well Worth the Wait (Although I Didn't....) October 29, 2009
By BeeTee
Format:DVD
As my title indicates, I gave up on waiting for this to come out in the US and ordered the series from the UK a year or so ago. I have a multi-region player, so it was a no-brainer. Waking the Dead is probably one of my favorite crime dramas of all time and this final season with all of the original cast is really stellar. Series 4, originally broadcast in the summer of 2004, consists of 6 two-part episodes (really 12) and there isn't a dud among them. "In the Sight of the Lord" involves the investigation of the unsolved murder of a WWII conscientious objector. The motive behind this murder is a rather gut-wrenching crime. "False Flag" involves the team investigating the unsolved murder of an Irish terrorist missing since 1981. A bit tedious at times but still quite good and better than almost anything out there. In "Fugue States" the team is handed the case of a set of twins missing for 13 years until one of them shows up in an ER after a car accident. The side story here really starts to develop the character of Mel Silver as she searches for her biological mother. The two parter "Anger Management" has the team investigating a suicide at a half-way house with the kicker involving the weapon used. The side story here is a lot of fun as the perennially angry Boyd is forced to take anger management counselling, the effects of which his team find disturbing. In "The Hardest Word" the team is called in when two males are found with the word "sorry" carved into their backs. There is an organized crime tie-in so another team is brought in to help solve the case, creating tension and providing a female of interest for Boyd. The final set "Shadowplay" is really wonderfully done but has a truly heart-wrenching ending. The series was never quite the same after, although still good. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars One of theBest January 28, 2010
Format:DVD
This is one of the best shows from England or anywhere else. I also bought this from the United Kingdom as well as series 5 and 6. I think there are two more seasons that have not come out on DVD even in the UK. I can hardly stand it to know they were made and yet are not available for purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars ANOTHER SUPERB SEASON November 5, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
After viewing Season four (4) of this British Cold Case detective/mystery series, all that I have to say is WOW! "Waking the Dead" Season four (4) is really Television Entertainment at its very, very best. I just loved this season.

The episodes (6 in 2 parts on 3 discs with each part running over an hour) of Season four (4) of this series are so really great. The acting, the writing and the direction of each episode are all simply superb. I really don't know when I've been so well entertained. Each episode was so good that it left me in awe.

Be advised that the episodes in Season Four are intense with no obvious solutions to the mysteries. Yes, there is a tragedy to the Cold Case Unit that will affect the future operations (a "cliff hanger" perhaps?). As I have stated before, this series does not "spoon feed" the viewing public clues. Believe me, one is always trying to determine the outcome until "all is revealed".

5.0 out of 5 stars Continuing British Cold Case Fun April 10, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Season Four of Waking the Dead continues with it's interesting cases, strong personalities of the detectives, and the all around whodunnit enjoyment of the first three seasons. It does come with a surprising twist at the end of the season, but it won't stop you from wanting to see season 5.

The actors have firmly settled into their roles in this season and there are lots of personality issues explored. But, this never gets in the way of the police detective cold case unit focus of the stories. It's a crime story not a soap, and I appreciate that. I firmly recommend this DVD series, but you do need to start at Season one to get the full flavor of this show.

5.0 out of 5 stars CSI but better March 13, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a great series. I have watched season 1-4 and would have purchased all the rest by this date if they had been on American DVDs. Now I will have to purchase a multi-region DVD player. Since the British have so many shows I would love to see, but can't, because of this I will get a multi-region DVD just so I can keep up with what the British have to offer. Waking the Dead is a first rate show. If you like CSI and shows like it I believe you will find this much more enjoyable. Great cast and plots.

5.0 out of 5 stars the best cold case show ever. May 1, 2010
Format:DVD
This season of the four available so far on dvd in the u.s. is by far the best.
And that's saying alot for this series which is the best cold case show ever. The acting is on a superior level and Trevor Eve carries the show as a intense justice driven detective in charge of forgotten cases. And he's backed up by a excellent cast that really put out first rate performances. The dead on this show really look like real dead people often too and the stories are extremely engaging. I would say it's one of my favorite british crime shows ever and that's saying alot. The main problem is that the bbc is way behind on releasing these to our region. This is series four from 2004 and they have already shot 8 seasons and will have another one in 2011 making it season 9 with perhaps even more in store. So they really need to get on the ball and release the other seasons to us as soon as possible.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Substantive British Police Procedural June 17, 2013
Format:DVD
If you like gritty British police procedurals, this series is stellar. The plots seem quite original - probably because each show is in two parts so there is ample time to develop complexity and back story. Boyd, the team leader for the cold cases, is showing development as a character and mellowing nicely. He is fairly magnetic as a character, a bit imperious, but warm and occasionally vulnerable. The ensemble works well together and by now you really know each team member - their strengths and peculiarities.

Love to watch these while on the treadmill as the pacing is good and the plot has some intensity to make the time go by quickly. Each show is quite distinct from the others and the endings are usually not predictable. I think the series just continues to get better and deepen. Great job by the writers, actors and producers.
