Editorial Reviews

Wire in the Blood: The Complete Second Season Extraordinary understanding of the criminal mind enables clinical psychologist Dr. Tony Hill (Robson Green) to empathize with both victim and murderer. Working with Carol Jordan of the Bradfield Police (Hermione Norris), Dr. Hill profiles and tracks down vicious killers in northern England. DISC 1 - STILL SHE CRIES When Dr. Hill enlists a female student in the reopened investigation of a serial killer, more than his judgment is called into question. DISC 2 - THE DARKNESS OF LIGHT Current murder victims found beneath ancient remains lead Dr. Hill to the supernatural conclusion that the same murderer is at work. DISC 3 - RIGHT TO SILENCE Two brutal murders point to a notorious gang boss who is in prison. Could he be orchestrating the killings from behind bars? DISC 4 - SHARP COMPASSION Someone is preying on Bradfield’s most vulnerable hospital patients. Emerging reason to suspect terrorism attracts the attention of MI5.

The second season is even more exciting and action-packed than the first season, especially the first DVD in this set, Still She Cries, where you get to see Dr. Hill's patient Maggie try to reconcile the haunted images of her victims by finding where she buried the bodies, Dr. Hill help DI Carol Jordan and the Bradfield police find their latest serial killer (very good bursts of analysis by Dr. Hill, very gripping. It feels as if Robson Green is now comfortable with playing Dr. Hill and is starting to live the part). There's the mind f*ck of one of Dr. Hill's post-graduates, and personally I think she should have really lost her lunch when DI Jordan told her who she'd been with.

The second, third, and fourth episodes are all as different from each other as the first season's were. Yes, there are a core group of actors but I don't feel as if I'm watching a "Crossing Jordan" sitcom. These all feel as if they are separate movies with full attention paid to script writing, location shoots, camera focus and background scenes, and sounds and soundtrack music. They don't drag out the latest high-tech gadget to solve a crime which is so common in the US (though I'm sure the crew are working their butts off behind the scenes to give me this wonderful series); Dr. Hill's analysis is the primary tool, and I'm kept glued to the screen watching and enjoying the pursuit and the twists each case takes. This is very high quality cinema that I hope will be come cult status. If you enjoy this you'd also enjoy Christopher Nolan's Memento starring Guy Pearse and Carrie-Anne Moss. Both involve your brain and your emotions in ways I'd thought the screen had long forgotten.

Wire in the Blood is a truly disturbing, and riveting British crime drama that delves into the darkest depths of the human mind. Clinical psychologist Tony Hill (Robson Green) plays the central character in this series and besides his day job as a university lecturer, he also helps the local police in the town of Bradfield solve the most horrific crimes. His counterpart (for the first three seasons) is the competent DI (later DCI) Carol Jordan (Hermione Norris) whose meticulous, analytic, forensics-based approach to solving crimes nicely complements the more eccentric methods employed by Hill. It is Hill's job to get into the minds of the most depraved and disturbed serial killers, and at times his methods are downright ghoulish (he experiments to see how he could choke himself on newsprint in one case), but his methods almost always yield the results needed to solve crimes.

The second season is even better than the first with four compelling cases to keep viewers glued to the screen. The episodes here are:
Still She Cries - Tony tries his desperate best to get Maggie, serial killer of children (and with whom he has worked for the past five years) to reveal where she hid the bodies of her victims. Meanwhile, there's a serial killer targeting young women, and Carol gets stalked by the killer.
The Darkness of Light - When the police discover an old burial ground dating 500 years holds not only the older corpses but also evidence of more recent victims, Tony comes in to help solve the case. The pattern of the crimes is very similar to the 500-year-old crimes, which leads Tony to suspect a ritualistic element to the killings.
Right to Silence - Carol is now a DCI, and works on a case involving the murder linked to a gang boss.

This show always works and given that it is formulaic and does resort to putting Tony in danger himself now and again (I can never believe that a cop or other professional would ever get caught by the serial killers they are hunting) it still works. The show provides working stories and a character who is believably so damaged that he only works within the confines of the working world he has committed to. He is a character that knows his limitations, continues to be eccentric without being stupidly quirky (I hate Monk for this reason) and allows enough humanity in now and again that you can believe his intimate relationships work. There is also enough variety in criminals to keep the stories worth watching and attention do dialogue is always obvious.

Season two continues the intense drama and character development of Dr. Hill and his relationship with both DCI Jordan and his career. The psychotic characters reinforce what I can only describe as great writing and acting. Wonder why our networks cannot seem to produce anything of similar quality on a reasonable basis?

This has what American TV drama lost. That is, a degree of reality. Gil and the crew at CSI can find a partial serial number on a fragment of tail light lens and figure out that they're looking for a navy-blue '93 Chrysler. Bones has a 110 pound woman who can take on any 250 lb., 6'5" professional boxer. Wire in the Blood has mysteries unfold without any such annoyances. When DCI Carol Jordan gets attacked by thugs, she drops with the first punch and spends a week in the hospital. For someone who's used to American police dramas, this can seem a little slow at first but, if you pay attention and let the story draw you in, it's worth it. The strength of the show is the great writing and acting. If you prefer the special effects and superhuman traits, watch Bones.
