Waking the Dead: Season Three DVD
A stylish, contemporary thriller series. The Cold Case team is a crack squad of police investigators who reopen unsolved murder cases, using new technology to re-examine evidence that hopefully will lead to the killer. They are at the cutting edge of modern police investigation, but they have been given just one year to prove their worth.]]>

The "Cold Case" unit of this series is comprised of a Psychological Profiler (played greatly by Sue Johnston), three detectives and a pathologist with one of the detectives (played wonderfully by Trevor Eve) being the Unit's leader. ALL of the actors are superb. As I have said in my review of Season two(2) of this series, what I really adore about this series is that all of the members of the Unit are "experts" in their profession and are not afraid to disagree with the Unit's leader (played by Eve); therefore, there can be major disagreements and "battles". This season the actors certainly seem to be really "into" each of their role without one "weak link". My god, they all are very good. Of course, all of this greatness in this show, to me, has to be attributable to the fabulous scripts.
The stories of each episode in Season three (3) are simply fantastic. They all are so well written. I too particularly loved the episode entitled "Walk on Water". That episode had me biting my nails. In fact, I could not stop watching this season until I had viewed all of the episodes. This season is so great; I loved it.
By the way, I must add that I really feel that this series is for adults with mature minds. I used the subtitles not because of hearing problems but to catch the superb well written mature dialog.
As a (hopefully) helpful aside for fans of this series: Further seasons of this great series aren't currently available from the US Amazon, but you can get Seasons Four, Five, and Six from Amazon.co.uk. The prices on entire seasons are currently £11 ($16)-£12 ($17) each, which is pretty fantastic. Shipping wasn't too bad either. With the pound being weaker against the dollar, now might be the time to order. If you haven't ever ordered from Amazon.co.uk, your same log-in and password will work. You will need a multi-region player as these are Region 2 and will not play on standard American players. Amazon carries some Phillips brand multiregion players for anywhere from $50-$75, right now. I hope this information is helpful to other fans of this fantastic show!
I saw Season One and Two. Am in the process of viewing Season Three. It's a series, which is getting better and better. This is not an easy accomplishment. Especially when the stories are so well developed and the acting superb throughout. A CSI British style or should I say BBC's view of that corner of criminology. It isn't CSI Las Vegas or Miami, but far superior. I already have purchased Series Four and plan to get Series Five, as soon as it arrives on the U.S. market in January. In short order, I have become addicted to Waking the Dead and look forward to the stories to crackle and pop during the long winter evenings. It's an expectation thoroughly pleasant to look forward to!
It's British TV and one of their best.
