Waking the Dead: The Complete Season Seven (DVD)

The award winning and critically-acclaimed crime drama returns for another series of dark, gripping murder mystery investigations. In the six stories, DSI Boyd and his Cold Case Squad enter the visceral worlds of international terrorism, private military contractors, the penal system and sex offenders, Navajo rituals, people trafficking and neo Nazi politics to close more previously unsolved cases. Boyd's son, missing for seven years, also makes a surprise reappearance.

We purchased an all region DVD player so we could watch the last 3 seasons (7,8 & 9) of this drama. The characters are strong and well played. The stories are NOT the same old formulas we see in so many US dramas. BBC does it right and we will probably continue to track down UK and Canadian tv series to watch.

Grace Foley is awesome! The series has great plots, a great cast, characters that are real and multidimensional, and is just an all around excellent thriller/suspense/drama program with a little comedy thrown in for good measure. If you love British mysteries, this one is a must see.

It's a pity, but this Dutch Pal import has all episodes shortened by approx 10 minutes. The cutting has been done "gently", but leaves some strange ellipses.
No subtitles other than Dutch ones.
Otherwise good quality.

It seems each season I watch Waking the Dead the "boss" gets more and more unbearable. This series was no exception. Boyd has problems he chooses to keep to himself and the rest of the team pay for his attitude. At least the final disc of the season brought some relief. Hopefully season 8 will be more congenial.

Seasons 1-5 were good and the show recovers from the debacle that is season 6 and 7 quite nicely, but 6 and 7 have one okay story "Yahrzeit" and a whole bunch of terrible stories. The attempt at character development with the death of Boyd's son fails and the relationships between team members gets flattened. There are also a couple of jump the shark moments that don't work (because sometimes stuff like that does). I almost did not bother with 8 and 9 because of 6 and 7 but they are well worth oer leaping the dead zone that happens in this series.

Some writers on this board have expressed their disappointments with Season seven (7) of `Waking the Dead". Season seven (7) was NOT disappointing to me, as a long time fan of "waking the Dead", in the least.

The two (2) episodes in two (2) parts on each of the three (3) discs in Season Seven (7), as always, were highly intense and with unforeseen, by me, outcomes. I really enjoyed season seven (7) of "Waking the Dead" finding it so very well acted, written and directed.

The leader of the Investigative team of "cold cases" that usually have tie-ins with current murders is DSI Boyd (brilliantly acted by Trevor Eve) who is particularly cranky, short-tempered and bossy this season mainly due to the appearance of his "long lost" son. Thank god, Grace (wonderfully acted by Sue Johnston) is on hand to calm and to "ground" him. His "support" team consisting of a pathologist (she's very astute with a severe smokeing habit) and two (2) other investigators (both greatly acted; with hunky Spence, wonderfully acted by Wil Johnson, being a standout) all of them are not afraid to show their expertise in their field and often go "toe to toe" in disagreements with their leader--certainly that is one of the reasons that I have always loved this very fine British Murder/mystery series.

All-in-all, I really enjoyed Season Seven (7) of BBC's "Waking the dead" (there are some really nasty cases involving horrific murders,terrorism, brutal Neo-Nazis, racism, many war-time atrocities, severed heads, Aids, child abuse, homophobia, etc.) I truly found each episode very exciting and mysterious putting me "on the edge of my seat". By the way, Season Seven (7) has a very emotional ending.

I love this series. It's filled with excellent characters, acted by excellent actors. Season Seven was even better than previous seasons and that says a lot. Now I can't wait fro Season Eight to get to the US. I wish they would put them all out immediately!

This is my favorite TV show. The stories are complicated, and the characters have such diverse personalities. I like having to concentrate closely to follow the show. It's a truly well-written mystery series. I can't wait for the next season to be released.
