Product Description

Television drama starring John Hannah. Brian Wicklow (Matthew Kelly) is jailed after a killing spree so macabre that he has become one of Britain's most notorious murderers. Vilified by the popular press and despised by fellow inmates, his notoriety is compounded by the fact that detectives, including Jake Osbourne (Hannah), investigating his crimes have never found the body of his last victim. However no one is safe with Wicklow behind bars.

Synopsis

The Cold Blood - Complete Series 1 DVD contains all episodes from the first series of this gripping ITV crime drama. In series one we're introduced to Wicklow (Matthew Kelly)--the serial killer who was jailed after a macabre murdering spree, which rendered him one of Britain's most infamous criminals. Vilified by the popular press and despised by fellow inmates, Wicklow's notoriety is compounded by the fact that detectives investigating his crimes never found the body of his last victim. And even though Wicklow is behind bars, no one is safe...

Series one boasts a fantastic cast, which includes stars such as Matthew Kelly ("Bleak House"), Jemma Redgrave ("Mansfield Park"), John Hannah ("The Mummy"), Pauline Quirke ("Down To Earth"), Russell Brand ("Russell Brand's Got Issues"), Tony Slattery ("Whose Line Is It Anyway?"), Bill Ward ("Coronation Street"), Phil Davis ("Rose & Maloney"), Nikki Sanderson ("Coronation Street") and Steve John Shepherd ("This Life"). The Cold Blood - Complete Series 1 DVD also features a 60-minute look "Behind the Scenes".

5.0 out of 5 stars ITV drama at it's chilling best 19 Jan 2008
By David TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The complete series of Cold Blood finally arrives on dvd. It was delayed because ITV made a final episode which wrapped up the series nicely. Serial killer Brian Wicklow (played by Matthew Kelly) is locked away in prisoner and plays a cat and mouse game with detective Eve (played by Jemma Redgrave) and ex con Jake (played by John Hannah). I won't go into plot details and ruin it for you but there a several "Silence Of The Lambs" moments. Needless to say there are twists and turns aplenty.

This 2 disk set cotains all 5 stories over two disks. The stories are Cold Blood, Cold Blood 2, Inteference, Dead And Buried and The Last Hurrah. Each story is excellent with only Dead And Buries being slightly weaker than the others. The supporting cast are excellent and include David Calder and Pauline Quirk. For me though, the scene stealer is Matthew Kelly who gives a chilling performance as the serial killer Brian Wicklow.

The picture quality is abit grainy on the first story but does improve. The sound quality is pritty good and the dvd is presented in 16.9 widescreen. The extras are abit limited - all you get is a Behind The Scenes featurette.

All in all this is a superb dvd package and well deserves the five stars I have awarded it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Thriller 26 Sep 2009
Format:DVD
Although Matthew Kelly seems an unlikely choice for the central dark figure, in fact he gives a star performance. The series is often dark and bloody but very intense and full of unforeseen twists. This is very much an English Hannibal Lector and it has a compelling plot and script.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cold Blood - Complete Series 15 Jun 2011
Format:DVD
I never knew Matthew Kelly could act like this - he really gives the WOW factor. I think this is a good series and is just as repeatedly watchable as the Cracker/Trial & Retribution/Prime Suspect et al dvds. Well worth every penny.

5.0 out of 5 stars Intelligent crime thriller 31 May 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have really enjoyed watching this boxed set of a series that I missed the first time around. Although it sounds as if there are only a couple of episodes here you actually get all of the instalments which amounts to about 6 hours worth. The actors are all superb and the characters well drawn and believable. The stories are genuinely chilling but what I really like are the psychological insights that the writers have brought to this series. It is a superior piece of television drama and I would highly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gripping 27 Feb 2011
By Martha
Format:DVD
I have to admit I bought this series mainly because I saw a clip of Russell Brand as John Hannah's stalker. I was intrigued by it and ordered the box to see how the funny man did drama. It only took a few minutes and I was captivated by the story, the brilliant writing and the superb acting. This is one of the best drama I've ever seen. When I'd watched the last episode I wanted to watch it all over again.

John Hannah's portrayal of a broken man, Jake, just out of jail for killing his wife and her lover, is heart-gripping. His feelings for old time friend Eve (Jemma Redgrave), who is a detective now make things even worse as she asks him for help in the case of serial killer Brian Wicklow, performed sensationally by Matthew Kelly, because they once where cellmates and Jake knows how Wicklow ticks. But Wicklow realizes Eve isn't working alone and starts to sets out for revenge - from inside the prison walls!

It really is fascinating to see how Wicklow, while in prison, is still able to manipulate people. I'd never heard of Matthew Kelly before (I'm german), but his performance here is one of the best I've ever seen. While playing a genuinely likeable old man he is one of the scariest villains I've come across.

And for Russell? His character doesn't appear that much, but I wasn't disappointed. This was the Wicklow-show.
