Special Features


Editorial Reviews

Based on the characters created by best-selling author Val McDermid

Dr. Tony Hill (Robson Green) is a clinical psychologist with an extraordinary understanding of the criminal mind. Working alongside Detective Inspector Alex Fielding (Simone Lahbib), Tony must race against time to profile and track down vicious killers before they strike again.

Disc 1: Unnatural Vices
Dr. Tony Hill investigates what appears to be the honor killing of a young Kurdish woman. However, the site where the body was found yields remains of other victims and an even more gruesome motive for the crimes.

Disc 2: Falls the Shadow
After several colleagues are murdered, Tony is arrested as the prime suspect. With time to ponder the ritualistic nature of the attacks, he finally finds a link with several recent prostitute killings.

Disc 3: From the Defeated
Tony becomes absorbed in a bizarre chain of murders in which each perpetrator in turn becomes the next victim, but the unusual modus operandi – always involving the same gun – remains identical.

Disc 4: The Dead Land
A killer starts dumping the bodies of homeless men in the financial district of Bradfield, leaving little evidence behind. Meanwhile, Tony fails to foresee the threat to his own life from a mysterious stalker.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Great August 1, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Robson Green is back in the sixth and from what I found out final season of the amazing Wire in the Blood series. I have always preferred the UK crime/mystery programming over the bland U.S. shows. Season 6 is just as gripping and tension filled as the previous five seasons. The crimes are just as bizarre, violent and twisted as the previous seasons and I absolutely love it. Green is perfect as Dr. Tony Hill and Simone Lahbib is great as DI Alex Fielding. If you have see the previous five seasons of Wire in the Blood then season 6 will be exactly what you of the best crime series I have ever seen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wire In The Blood Continues Its Excellence August 8, 2009
This series is based on the novels of Val McDermid. It is a very faithful recreation of the novels with perfect casting of Robson Green as psychologist Tony Hill. Carol is no longer his policewoman partner but she has been well replaced by Alex Fielding. Hill is especially a misfit in much of regular society and is only at his best when delving into the criminal mind. Green perfected all of Hill's tics so that he is seen in all of his odd duck glory. These are all murder cases and most of them are serial murders. I've enjoyed every season of this series and am sad to hear this one is evidently the last. The British do a marvelous job on tv mystery and crime series. One thing that especially distinguishes a British series is that it never takes the easy way out. If it is better for the show, the UK series will go the the extra mile by killing off characters and taking other unpopular plot twists which are anathema in an American series. An American series always has more of a Disney patina to it regardless of which studio made the series. We in America rarely can resist adding schmaltz, sentimentality and morals to our tv series. The British are made of sterner stuff, as they say. I've also read Val McDermid's novels of Tony & Carol. They are excellent and much more detailed and complex than the tv series. I've also listened to some of the audio versions which are also quite good. You can't go wrong with this one.

3.0 out of 5 stars Blood-Letting November 10, 2009
By Hikari
All good things must come to an end, and alas, after 6 seasons, the road has come to an end for Dr. Tony Hill, at least in his BBC incarnation. This final season displays a few of the strongest episodes we've seen in a good while. Robson Green dropped many of Dr. Hill's more endearing idiosyncracies during the past two seasons, but all his patented tics return in force in "Falls the Shadow", an episode lifted directly from a Val McDermid novel. Such is not usually the case; most of these episodes retain the characters created by McDermid, but are not her plots. The dynamic between Tony and DI Fielding has settled down from its earlier antagonistic vibe; Alex is softer, more feminine and not as biting as she used to be. It seemed like they were priming us for a romance to develop between Tony and Alex, and now we will not see that happen. As a staunch Carol Jordan supporter, I am just as glad about that! There was no apparent attempt made to tie off loose ends, with the final episode ending ambiguously, which makes me wonder whether another season had in fact been planned before the plug was pulled. All is not lost, however: Val McDermid has just come out with another Tony-Carol book, so our shy forensic lovers continue to have lives on the page. Here's hoping the success of this show will propel Robson Green to long-deserved movie stardom in America, now that he has the time.

5.0 out of 5 stars For fans of "Criminal Minds" willing to step up. August 27, 2009
This series just keeps getting better and better, it was always fantastic. Each of the four episodes is equal to a feature movie...but better than most movies in a similar vein release in theaters every year. The last serial killer movie that I think came close was "Se7en," and that was a while back.

While the villains and the circumstances are often pitch black (you thought Hannibal Lecter was creepy? I smirk at your innocence), the thing that keeps the stories from growing unbearable is the main character, Tony Hill, who in the grand tradition of "defective detectives" like Monk and Columbo, has appealing character quirks that help humanize the entire show. The writing is top-notch, the acting excellent, and the production values better that what American viewers typically expect, apart from the best of the premium cable series.

If you enjoy "Criminal Minds," but wish it had more grit and stronger characters, this series is for you. It's tough to watch, but it's exhilarating, too. And for what amounts to four really good movies, this is packaging of season six is even a pretty good value.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another good season October 20, 2010
I was getting annoyed with the writers the first couple episodes because there were some crazy coincidences in the first one that could not ever happen and in the second I felt they were drawing our heroes the investigators way too much into the drama. I think Cracker made the same mistake dramatizing the principals instead of letting the cases be the framework they operate around. Anyway I just finished the 4th episode and I felt the season turned itself around even though the ending was not appropriate for a conclusion to the series. They didn't seem to realize it was the end and you can't blame them for that. All in all Green was tremendous, he seems to really take everything to heart. It's like you can see the wrinkles forming as he deals with all the murder and dysfunctional personalities. The portrayals on this show are VERY realistic compared to US television.
