Editorial Reviews

Dr. Tony Hill (Robson Green) is a clinical psychiatrist whose extraordinary understanding of the criminal mind has been an invaluable asset to the police. Working alongside Bradfield’s new detective inspector, Alex Fielding (Simone Lahbib), Tony profiles and tracks down vicious killers in Northern England.

Disc 1: Time to Murder and Create
Tony is convinced that a paroled rapist, convicted years ago as a result of his forensic profile, is the man behind a recent string of disappearances.

Disc 2: Torment
Police are baffled when a prostitute’s murder matches a series of killings for which Derek Tyler has already been caught and jailed. While Alex struggles for a lead on the streets, Tony thinks Tyler holds the key.

Disc 3: Hole in the Heart
A businessman and his accountant die in a horrible fire – apparently victims of deliberate arson. Were they murdered by jealous partners?

Disc 4: Wounded Surgeon
Tony’s first case with the police comes back to haunt him when Jason Eglee, convicted of murder on Tony’s evidence, comes up for parole.

Customer Reviews

It's better than Season 2, in my opinion, and on a par with Seasons 1 and 3.
LSA
Dr. Hill's tentative relationships with the the team of detectives, as well as, with his leading lady counterpart also helps propel the series forward.

My only request to Coastal is to release in the US a little quicker, either to tv or to dvd!

One negative comment first:

1. Not only has season five already aired, but so has PRAYER OF THE BONE, a stand alone episode that brings the Tony Hill character to the United States. Realize it has been a year and a half since season four first aired and it is just now being released on DVD. I wish they would put them out quicker and include some extras.

About this season:

1. Someone incorrectly stated that the producers have created a love interest for Tony Hill this season with new DI Alex Fielding, played by Simone Lahbib. That is not true. If anything, this season and especially season five focus more on the investigations and less on the relationships between the central characters. They do explore it to some extent, but it is one of mutual respect.

2. Some will miss Hermione Norris as DCI Carol Jordan initially, but as the series progresses, Simone Lahbib as Alex Fielding really starts to grow on you. As a single mother, not only is she a more fully realized character from the start, but she creates more possibilities for the show and provides a new direction for future episodes.

3. Overall, this is the best season of the four available on DVD. In the first three seasons you usually got one episode that you felt was so-so, but not with this one. The acting is top notch as usual and the episodes have enough variety to make you want to watch the following season. And that is a good thing because season five is even better... I just wish they would put it out on DVD!

Wire in the Blood is one of those wonderfully icky crime dramas that the British do so well. Based on the series of four really creepy books by Val McDermid, this series features the character of Dr. Tony Hill, a clinicl psychologist who moonlights as a criminal profiler for the police in Bradfield, a fictional city in Northern England. The best part of the series is the casting of Robson Green (from the equally compelling British crime drama, Touching Evil) as Dr. Tony Hill. Robson brings a strange likability to Dr. Hill, an individual nearly as tortured as his clients and who has the ability to see the most grusome crimes from the perpetrators' perspectives. McDermid's books, and the first three seasons of the t.v. series, also featured the character of DCI Carole Jordan, the police inspector with whom Dr. Hill has a close professional relationship and would like to have a personal one, only neither of them has any ability whatsoever to maintain a close relationship with another human being. Carole Jordan was played by Hermione Norris, and she and Green had a magical chemistry. Unfortunately, Norris left the show after the third season and it suffers as a result. Sioban Lahbib who plays DCI Jordan's replacement is quite good, but inasmuch as the relationship between Dr. Hill and Carole Jordan was a huge part of the show, the producers sadly chose to try to make the new detective a romantic interest for Dr. Hill from the get-go and it feels forced, leaving the series as just another criminal profiler/cop show about really twisted cases. Good, but not the sublime show that the first three seasons made for.

If you've never seen the show, start with Season 1. If you've seen the first three seasons and liked them, read the books. If you've done all the above and have seen Touching Evil as well, then by all means dig in, but don't expect to be as enthralled as you were.

I've read 2 of the 4 books and have watched the first three series of the show. First off, don't expect the books (do we ever?) which are brilliant (tho even more grusome than the show). Also, don't expect series 1-3 in series 4. It's definitely different. If you are attached to Hermione Norris/Carol Jordan, you may have trouble w/ the addition of Simone Lahbib. I, however, kept an open mind and have been pleasantly surprised.

Simone's rapport w/ Robson Green and her acting is awesome. I also think her character is very well rounded (Alex is a single mum who also struggles w/ relationships; a bit feisty/abrupt, but caring).

Did I miss something where there is talk of a romantic relationship between Tony/Alex? I saw them get closer, but no sexual tension between them. There is definitely a trust and respect that develops, but even that becomes temporarily strained in the later episodes.

The only thing I didn't like about the first episode (Time to Murder) was how they "phased out" Carol Jordan - it was a bit abrupt and not believeable to me given the relationshp between Carol/Tony. She never would have just left him hanging. I also thought that Alex's initial strong rejection of Tony's "help" was resolved too quickly in the episode (she came round too quickly). Maybe not to have been so extreme (Carol gone POOF! and Alex hating profilers) in either case would have been less jarring in the transition, but once the 4th series got going, I was very drawn in and the stories were as good or better compared to the first 3 series. Torment was AWESOME (and no where as grusome as the book)!, Hole in the Heart was a little bizarre and the involvement of the chief was a little hokey, but I thought it was a great episode.
