Format: DVD
Blue Murder, is a police procedural/murder mystery from Britain's ITV. This is a terrific series that personifies a woman in charge.

Caroline Quentin stars as Detective Chief Inspector Janine Lewis, a woman with more on her plate than most. The series takes place in Manchester, and some of the accents are most pronounced. DCI Lewis is in charge of mostly male detectives. In Series 4, there is a lovely female added who has no difficulty showing the males how good she is. the team loves and respects DCI. Lewis has a lot going for her but she is also a single mom of four children. She is pregnant in the first series when her husband leaves her for another woman. By Series Five, Lewis has learned how to deal, almost. She has a live-in nanny, but her two older children are teens, and the third chid, Thomas is always in trouble. The dad has moved to another country leaving Lewis to cope all on her own.

Her colleague, DI Richard Mayne, played by Ian Kelsey, is a friend and it is often suggested a romantic interest. He seems to be a comfort, and they are always joking. Lewis tells Mayne that he has the best a** in Manchester! Lewis can count on Mayne, and that is important in this series.

The stories are well written and filmed. Many times, I think I have figured out the plot, and then someone new or a missed clue is added to set me off track. Manchester, is a lovely city, gritty, full of crime, but, still, an involved and fascinating. It appears that Series Five was the last one of this series. I will miss the group, and most of all, DCI Lewis.

Series Five is the best series of Blue Murder (and the last ever).

Janine's kids father is living in another country and her teenage son is taking out his father's absence on her by being rude and skipping school.

Janine finally has to decide between her career and her kids after her son gives her a few home truths about her never having any time to spend with him.

When Janine sees she has no choice but to quit her job, Richard tries to talk her out of it.

Their is a really great 2 part story that ends the series with some nice shocks and surprises, will Janine quit her job for the sake of her kids?

A good series which has kept to its original concept of a cop and a mum balancing both sides of her life. Great shame there will be no further series.

This was the final season of this excellent police crime series set in Manchester.
The screenplays throughout have been superior to most; but for me it's the characters that have top appeal. I could wish that Janine's ex-husband had been still around - that interplay was very real - but his absence introduced new possibilities for scripting her family life, which were taken up and interwoven very well.
Delightful to have a heroine who's not your standard shapely good-looker; delightful, too, to have the yummy Ian Kelsey as her would-be squeeze.
Basically, well worth buying. I'm very glad I did!

My wife informs me how great this DVD was. She throughly enjoyed the previous series 1-4. Caroline Quentin is maturing into a great belivable actress. Watch and enjoy.

Very good series, and a great storyline. A human touch also added. Well worth watching. Is there a series 6.

Just finished watching this run on ITV - excellent viewing - very easy and enjoyable to watch - no complicated and 'difficult to follow' plots just straight forward who-dun-it with a nice mix of serious/fun characters.
Saying that,however, the final '2 part' episode takes on a far more serious story line involving Shap and also Janine's (the always great Caroline Quentin) family predicament with her son Tom (an ever improving Ceallach Spellman) at odds with her own career aspirations.
Great viewing and a great series.

great show, love caroline quentin, she is a superb actress. pity there were only 5 series. the other actors all work well together, they just bounce off each other. as a police show it's not stodgy, & keeps you enthralled. well done. uk does superb tv shows.
