Tony's connection with the police is via Detective Chief Inspector Carol Jordan (Hermione Norris--Cold Feet's Karen Marsden), a shrewd, hard-working cop, who is well aware of Tony's brilliant mind and of his value to the police. There exists almost from the start--and always beneath the surface--a mutual attraction between Tony and Carol, and it is here that Tony most poignantly feels his lack of social skills.
There are, at the time of writing, two sets on dvd (with set three due for release in February 2006).Read more ›
Robson Green is brilliant as Dr.Tony Hill. The stories are portrayed as grittily as they are on paper.
The same suspense, excitement and horror is there. Some of Val Macdermids Tony Hill series have been scaled down for television, but the ensuing TV versions make for exciting viewing. Realistic without being depressing, Violent without becoming nauseous, I would reccommend the Wire in the Blood series to any crime drama buff. Those of you who loved Prime Suspect will not be disappointed with this.
The Wire in the Blood television series is dark, creepy, gritty, and compelling. These are psychological dramas that don't sugar-coat the crimes, the people, or the situations. They're not for everyone, but the majority of mystery/crime drama fans will find them more than satisfying. The characters are well written and acted without being standard or cliche and the stories, while dark, are a compelling look into the psychology of criminal profiling and anaylysis.
Good characters, strong writing and high production standards is what really sells this series.
This is still a series worth buying. I did notice on Series 1, the dvd is in full-screen while it was aired in wide-screen on BBC America. Most people would never notice this, but composition is off in some scenes and lighting is blown-out in other ones.
It's a small and subtle change to certain portions of the episodes.
Still worth buying.

Ok, but if anyone is hard of hearing the accent of the actor (British, american, or Welsh) does not really matter, even the best-spoken english (or french, or portuguese) is difficult to understand for the persons that are hard of hearing. So, unless you have a perfect ear and, (God help you),... Read More

Prime suspect with Helen Mirren has subtitles (the region 2 DVDs). Many of the Poirot´s movies, especially the 4st, 5th and 6th have subtitles for the hard of hearing. An old British mystery serie but very, very good and with the additional bonus of subtitles is Cadfael with Sir Derek Jacobi,... Read More
