Tony Hill goes to America. The DVD comprises only the one episode/film (albeit a bit longer than in the other series) and it is a very boring one at that. The script was probably written too quickly, the result being totally unrealistic and farfetched, the film focuses on Tony's idiosyncrasies without any of the other elements that make the series so great, even the jokes are boring. If you want to be cheated out of your money believing that what you are getting is the next series to Wire in the Blood, get this.

Another good story, but missed the regulars like Alex and Paula, etc; Took a bit of getting used to seeing Dr Tony Hill working in the US enviroment, instead of the gritty north of England, but eventually managed to get into the story. Shame ITV have axed Wire in The Blood and replaced it with so much reality rubbish!! The last regular episode left the viewer wandering whether Tony had killed the mad psycho Michael, but now we shall never know!! (unless one of the other channels decide to take on a new series! One can only hope!!).

"Wire in the Blood: Prayer of the Bone,"(2007),90 minutes, is a feature-length film from the popular British television series WIRE IN THE BLOOD, based upon the widely-praised series of British crime novels by Val McDermid, known by the same name. This possibly free-standing TV episode of the British mystery/crime thriller series was distributed by BBCAmerica among other firms.

In it, British crime-fighting psychologist Dr. Tony Hill (as played by the toothsome TV star Robson Green,Reckless ) crosses the Atlantic to investigate the small-town Texas case of Darius Grady, an American Iraqi war veteran who brutally killed his wife and two children. Can Dr. Hill, who has been hired by the prosecution, show the soldier's defense of post-traumatic stress disorder is bogus, working in these unfamiliar surroundings? Hill has a previous acquaintance with the veteran: while he had been stationed in England at a U.S. military base near Bradfield (the fictional Midlands town created by McDermid where Hill and his usual co-workers are based), the man was charged with the statutory rape of a local 15-year old. Hill had interviewed him, but before the soldier could be prosecuted, the military transferred him back home to Texas. The soldier is now using the same defense that he planned to use then, PTSD. So, will the Texas heat, hostile locals, and a possible violent plot against him prevent Hill from making his findings?

The episode was written by Patrick Harbinson, based on characters created by McDermid, queen of tartan noir. And what's tartan noir, you might ask. A crime novel written by a Scot (duh!

"Wire in the blood" is an excellent series[ five star] albeit that the murders and characters are often bizarre. Robson Green is outstanding as the the obsessive psychologist who contributes so much to give insight to the police detectives in their investigations. There is excellent support from the entire core cast, first class acting and some lovely moments of humour and vulnerability. The writing is excellent and has a sharp focus. You can never get bored with the loner, Doctor Tony Hill [Robson Green] and "she who is wise amongst all other women" loves the series and the main man[ I think it's something to do with those piercing eyes!]. Unfortunately this particular departure of Dr Hill to America is a mistake and certainly not up to the standard of other episodes. Robson Green is still very good but the actor has to cope with some glutinous writing. The story plods along knee deep in treacle to a climax that has a nice twist. Still worth watching but a sad let-down.

Set in America this lacked the presence of the other episodes. Too American. flashing smiles full of white teeth, not a hair out of place. Unrealistic atmosphere as one has become accustomed with films set in the USA. However Robson Green is as excellent as ever and shows how acting should be done.

Robson Greene excels as the wacky psychologist in this feature length movie of the series. This storyline is well structured and maintains interest throughout.
I am never quite sure whether the police would allow the amount of interference that Tony Hill exerts, and I suspect the police would come to the same conclusions themselves often without needing his input! But, this minor reservation aside the movie does not disappoint and true to form, there are twists and turns which challenge the original theories the police and Hill propose, until the final solution is found.
Greene's character is odd, but then many creative people have bizarre or unique personalities, and Tony Hill can never be said to be bland. Irritating, strange and not necessarily particularly likeable, he is very real and he provides a welcome change from the other stereotyped portrayals of the police and professional workers that we often get in other dramas.
The "Wire in the Blood" series is not for the faint-hearted, but given the storylines are based on true cases, then the fiction reflects reality perhaps to a greater degree than might be believed when watching the series.
