4.0 out of 5 stars Second season of this excellent series 14 Mar 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
The second season of Wire in the Blood is every bit as good as the first, filled with gruesome crimes and twists and turns. All four episodes are included on this dvd - Still She Cries, The Darkness of Light, Right to Silence and Sharp Compassion. Even the weakest of these (the far-fetched The Darkness of Light) is very watchable.
Building on the events of the first season, Clinical Psychologist Dr Tony Hill (Green) and DI/DCI Jordan (Norris) have developed a professional relationship that is very much in the Mulder and Scully mould - one relies on fact and the other on intuition. There is a closeness, trust and caring that suggests more than friendship but never goes beyond. The relationship between the two is pivotal to the series and both leads do a great job.
As with the first dvd, the extras are barely woth mentioning (short interviews with Green, Norris and the author of the books) but this dvd is still worth the money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Blood Red and Green 15 May 2003
By Mikki S
Format:DVD
Robson Green has two fan bases - the over 30 Mum who remembers dapper Robson in 'Soldier Soldier' and me. I am neither 30, nor am I a Mum, and I couldn't stand the aforementioned, until I saw 'Wire in the Blood'...
Green's master stroke was accepting the script of a drama slightly more complex than most he has played before. Traditonally his roles have been rather flat, lacking in depth, and thus turned some viewers like me off. However as Dr Tony Hill, a police psychologist, he shows facets of his acting ability that were previously hidden under a bushel - the man undeniably has talent.
Hermione Norris cannot be ignored as Green's colleague, a driven and smart woman with more than a little attraction to our complex friend. There are scenes between the two of great tension, frustration and tenderness, and the suspense will tear you apart.
The storylines are engaging, and occassionally a little shocking, but by that token they spark emotion and bring a level to this police drama that is largely unparalleled in UK crime drama(it will certainly appeal to Morse and CSI fans). McDermid's symbiosis of the private and personal lives of her characters takes you into their worlds and to a certain extent you start to empathise with their emotions.
'Wire in the Blood' is the surprise addition to my DVD collection this year, and righteously so. Not bad for a man whose middle name is 'Golightly'....

Most aspects of the stories have been discussed in the preceding episode reviews, so I won't add anything other than to say I own both Wire in the Blood seasons and can highly recommend them as an any season gift, or to enjoy yourself.
A few words on Robson Green....
Prior to viewing WITB I was entirely unfamiliar with both Robson and his acting career. However, I've found his characterization of Tony Hill always fascinating, compelling and a delight, so I was frankly surprised by the somewhat negative comments by several UK reviewers concerning Robson and his abilities as an actor. From what I've read, it would seem that they are dragging behind them a heavy load of "Robson Green Baggage." I would suggest to any other UK viewers hesitant to give WITB a look due to prejudices against Robson Green: Drop the RB baggage outside the front door, sit down, turn off the lights, and enjoy some of the finest writing, producing and acting (yes, Robson too) that television has to offer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cripping and Intelligent 20 April 2004
Format:DVD
In deference to Dragon, I am a woman, but not the type to turn a head atevery good looking actor in the business. We have so few decent dramaseries in the US, that I've taken to watching BBC America regularly. It'sthe only place where I can watch intelligent dramas, mysteries andcomedies. It's that bad in the US right now. I always watch the premiereepisode to see if the show is worth watching. Some are and some aren't.
My first encounter with "Wire in the Blood" was "The Mermaid's Singing". I only got to see half of it, but BBCA usually plays any set of seriestwice before taking it off, so I knew I'd see it again.
"The Mermaid's Singing" was incredible. Intense, frustrating andexciting. The same with "Shadows Rising" and "Justice Painted Blind". With TMS, my heart was pumping as Tony Hill's door bell rang. Hill is onthe phone trying to get a message to DI Jordan when the attacker takeshim. Strung up in Strapaedo(torture) Hill puts his mind to work to gainhis captors trust, even though the viewer can feel the panic he is tryinghard not to succumb too.
There is a wonderful chemistry between all the players. This series is anassemble cast series, although the two main players, Dr. Tony Hill(RobsonGreen) and DI Carol Jordan(Hermione Norris) have a special relationship. She has made it obvious that she fancies him and is vocal about it. He isat a loss of how to deal with it, but if you read the book, his behavioris more understandable. At times, you can wonder if their romance willever get off the ground, but if the series follows the trend of thenovels, it will.
The dvds are good and the special features are average. Short interviewsand biographies. The real jems are the films themselves.
I do own these 3 films and I do recommend them to anyone, especiallyAmericans, who wish intelligent dramas and murder mysteries.
