Brilliant, passionate and eccentric, clinical psychologist Dr. Tony Hill (Robson Green) has an extraordinary understanding of the criminal mind. It enables him to empathize with both victim and murderer ? and even to visualize the crimes. Working alongside Detective Inspector Carol Jordon (Hermione Norris), Dr. Hill helps the police profile and track down vicious killers in northern England.

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.

I just finished watching Season 3, and am officially addicted. While I am waiting for my Season 4 disc to arrive, I will try to control my jones by writing this review.

Both Hermione Norris and Robson Green were unknown to this American prior to watching this series, but they are both fabulous in their respective roles as DCI Carol Jordan and profiler extraordinaire Dr. Tony Hill. Dr. Hill can best be described as 'quirky', sometimes unsettlingly so, in his methods, and his ability to intuit the minds of twisted serial killers leaves him several bubbles off plumb in normal human interactions. However, DCI Jordan is similarly laser-focused on her career, and over the episodes she and Dr. Hill have forged a real and tender bond that makes each the other's best and most reliable friend. Though Carol and Tony often come tantalizingly close to becoming far more than friends and professional colleagues (and for these two rather damaged, very lonely people, we want them to stop dancing and just get it on already!), so far the series, prudently perhaps, keeps any romantic feelings bubbling under the surface but as yet unacted upon.

There are unmistakable echoes of 'Prime Suspect's Jane Tennyson in Carol Jordan that go beyond blonde hair; Helen Mirren brought us a cautionary portrait of a workaholic police inspector whose career and natural inclination shut meaningful personal relationships out of her life until it's too late. DCI Jordan is in danger of treading down that same path if she's not careful. Perhaps (and I hope so) this series will finally wrap up with Tony and Carol as a couple, and save Carol from Jane Tennyson's fate. In the meantime the dance is fun to watch.

"Fun" might perhaps be the wrong word for a series that is unabashedly grisly. Really.

I love the series, and the videos are great. The quality is excellent. However, English is not my first language and the lack of Spanish (and any other language) subtitles was a sort of disappointment. I didn't know that before the purchase. Fortunatly, the audio is great. And if you don't mind the absence of subtitles, I totally recommend it!

I became a Robson Green fan when I saw the first season of Wire in the Blood. Since then, I have read the books, and watched Green in his other crime series, Touching Evil. If you like to watch films about police solving serial killer crimes, you will enjoy this. The crimes are shocking, the denouement is interesting, and at the heart of the story is the developing relationship between Dr. Tony Hill (Green) and the police woman with whom he works these crimes.

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.

Widescreen?
I ordered 2 seasons from Amazon. Season one was from Amazon's main site and is 4x3. I purchased Season three through one of the Marketplace merchants and it is 16x9. Haven't gotten Season two yet so can't say . . .
