Product Description

Dr. Tony Hill is back in four more dark, gripping episodes of ITV s thrilling series Wire In The Blood. Socially awkward and unorganised, and with his private life spilling from his favoured plastic bags, Tony Hill s unique insight into the fractured mind remains invaluable to Bradfield C.I.D. as the close knit team continue to hunt for the killers, rapists and sadists stalking their streets. And, in this series, nobody is safe. In episode one, Unnatural Vices the victims are having their limbs systematically cut off, apparently while they are still alive, with the masked perpetrator calmly eating their severed body parts in front of them as they remain conscious. Could a police officer be next on the killer s gruesome menu Based on Val McDermid s best selling novel The Last Temptation , Falls the Shadow sees a confused Tony named as the main suspect when an Experimental Psychologist s mutilated body is discovered in her hotel room, with Dr Hill s blood and fingerprints all over the crime scene. Young men are going missing in the dark episode From the Defeated , only to turn up beaten, strangled and shot in the head. The team must discover any link between these deaths and the underground world of dog fighting, and quickly, before another young victim is taken. And finally, in episode 4 The Dead Land , Tony and Alex s relationship begins to grow and evolve, but the socially inept doctor is continually missing all the signals. Meanwhile the freshly cleansed bodies of the homeless and vulnerable are turning up abandoned in Bradfield. Can the team collect all the pieces of the jigsaw before another gruesome death? Starring Robson Green as the hapless yet brilliant Dr. Hill and Simone Lahbib as the supportive and patient Alex Fielding, Wire In The Blood remains one of ITV s most popular series, with author Val McDermid nominated for the channel s Writer s Award for Classic TV Drama, alongside the likes of Colin Dexter, Ian Rankin and Lynda La Plante.

By David TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
Yes sadly my review title is correct - those prats at ITV have axed the series for some bizzarre reason. I guess they just want to concentrate on bad soap operas and reality tv which no one is really interested. No wonder ITV is loosing viewers in droves.

Anyway enough of my moaning and back to the dvd itself. Series 6 contains 4 stories which were originally shown in two parts but for some reason have been cobbled together so you get four single stories.

The first story Unnatural Vices sees Dr Tony Hill and the team investigating a number of dismembered bodies which could be linked to the seedy world of S and M.

Next up is Falls The Shadow which sees Tony suspected of murder while attending a psychologists conference. Meanwhile Alex Fielding and the team investigate a number of brutal murders of prostatutes. This episode is based of the novel The Last Temptation by Val McDermid.

From The Defeated sees young men going missing only to turn up badly beaten, strangled and shot in the head. Could there be a link between the killings and the underground world of dog fighting.

Finally The Dead Land in which Dr Hill investigates a number of deaths of homeless people. All the bodies are discovered to have been freshly cleaned. Meanwhile a dangerous patient of Tony's is on the loose.

All four stories are very enjoyable with Robson Green giving his usual excellent performance as Dr Tony Hill and Simone Lahbib is great as Alex Fielding. The dvd is rated 18 because there are some pritty disturbing scenes particually in the first story but if you are a fan of Wire In The Blood you will probably be used to this. This is a great series which had very good viewing figures which makes ITV's decision to axe it all the more stupid.

Robson Green is excellent in this series, which is full of good story lines and twists and turns. I missed most of the episodes when they were first broadcast, but now I can watch them as and when I want.

Good value and prompt delivery.
