5.0 out of 5 stars Now the best TV series in the UK 12 Nov 2008
Format:DVD
Waking The Dead's sixth series in 2007 cemented its place in my heart as the best TV drama in Britain. The cast are superb; Trevor Eve can be hilarious as D.Supt. Boyd, Dr Foley must be the greatest psycho-analyst in the world and I have to say I prefer the imperious Tara Fitzgerald and the hugely under-rated theatre actress Félicité du Jeu to the previous female cast members, especially as Eve seems to spend a lot of time dissecting corpses listening to eighties ska music.

'Double Bind' is a particular favourite, a wonderfully peculiar episode (as they all are, in their own way) and the funniest scene I've seen in a long time involves Eve using Spence and Stella to remodel the death of two victims killed in the coital position in 'The Fall'.

The 2008 series was just as good and should be out soon and there's an eighth series currently being made, though sadly Du Jeu is not confirmed for the cast which could mean that Stella has been promoted, killed, finally got it on with DI Jordan or been fired for her propensity for slapping witnesses.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Episodes As Always! 5 Feb 2011
By E. A. Redfearn TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
It was recently announced that season 9 of Waking The Dead would be the final series made by BBC. All good things have to come to an end someday. In the meantime though, die-hard collectors of this amazing series will continue to purchase these box sets which are now being sold by Amazon at a fantastic price, bearing in mind, the quality of these episodes, brilliant as always.

Series 6 is one of the best. Consistently good, each story is one on its own, and never fails to amaze. Of the six here, I think Yahrzeit is one of the best. Based around a story of Nazi war criminals escaping from Germany in 1945 and then settling in London. Their secret eventually emerges when Boyd and Co. re-open an unsolved murder case from 1946 which reveals details of an horrific plan to create a "Master Super Race". There is a tragic twist to this story involving one of the children now grown up who is implicated in the murder of a family whose remains are discovered under the concrete floor of a house where the escaped Nazi war criminals resided. Veterna actress Eileen Atkins guest stars.

Mask of Sanity is the next best story. After being released from a secure psychitric unit where he had served many years for murder, James Jensen struggles to find the truth about what really happened in a children's home where he had been badly beaten, and to find some kind of redemption in order to come to terms with what happened all those years before. The team then turn their investigation onto Dr. Bruno Rivelli who had managed the home at the time and he becomes a suspect in three murders. Jemma Redgrave and James Fox guest stars in this absorbing episode. There are some scenes which are pretty violent and distressing in this episode, so be warned.

The Fall is a brilliant episode.

4.0 out of 5 stars Still Going Strong 20 April 2013
Format:DVD
Waking the dead series 6, on the whole, maintains the shows high standard of writing, production value and fantastic actors. All the plots, forgetting one episode, are all intricately written and beautifully crafted, all superbly well done. The reason this set did not get five stars is because of one particular episode titled "Deus Ex Machina", I will tell you about this disgraceful, diabolical and too stupid to bare thing lower down in this review, but I will spit out the word "AWFUL" to give you a taste of the future. Despite this, series 6 was great and still the show is going strong. While it is not quite as memorable and solid as series 5, it is still classic crime drama, with loads of sub-plots amongst other thrills that we have learnt to expect and admire - still television at its finest.

Also, throughout this series, there is a sub-plot about Mel Silver, a now deceased ex-member of the cold case team. You are intrigued about this throughout and wonder if there will ever be an answer to your questions...

Wren Boys: This is a "Good" episode. After the first part, you felt it was better than when it concluded, but still a great watch. It was intriguing to try and find out who killed the boy in the concrete pit, and there were a fair few options on who it might be. I felt that this episode was more implausible and would not happen in real life, at least not to the extremes shown here. In a way it was daft, but it was enjoyable and kept you entertained to the end. A good episode, not the best in the series, but series 6 is only just getting started.

Deus Ex Machina: As told above, this is an absolutely AWFUL episode of WTD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Winner! 2 April 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Another wonderful series from the WTD team. I would highly recommend this series. It's a terrible shame that the BBC has just confirmed that there will be no more made after Series 9. Another wonderful series goes the way of Inspector Lynley et al... Brilliant service from Amazon as normal.
