Messiah 5 The Rapture does not feature Ken Stott or any of the cast from the previous Messiahs, instead it stars Marc Warren (Hustle)and features a brand new investigation team. Marc Warren and the rest of the cast do an excellent job playing troubled detective Joseph Walker. Messiah 5 sees Walker an his team investigating a series of killings with mysterious symbols left in sand by the victims.

Like the other series Messiah 5 moves at a good pace and I quickly got used to Marc Warren being in it and no Ken Stott. There are a number of good twists and I did not guess who the killer was this time. I only guessed the killer in Messiah 2 and 4. There are no extras on the dvd which is a little dissapointing. Hopefully they will make Messiah 6 soon - it would be nice if it had both Marc Warren and Ken Stott in it. So if like me you enjoy a good murder mystery then Messiah 5 The Rapture is well worth watching.

Marc Warren's character is absolutely flat. You are supposed to believe he has inspirations though basically he just waits around until someone else dies or someone else suggests he does something. No 6 for me.

This DVD is a pathetic attempt by the BBC to fool the viewing public by re-using the title of an excellent show on a mediocre new entry. This show has no connection to the previous episodes of Messiah - totally (everyone) different cast and different writers. Only connection to the older version is that there is a serial killer with a religious theme and police try and find him. The ripoff could be tolerated if the new series had any redeeming values but the actors are stiff (actually they are all stiffs). The main plot is predictable and the side subplots are uninteresting. Fortunately, the episodes are only 60 minutes each so the viewer suffering does not last too long.

storyline was very good as you would expect from the 'messiah' production team. marc warren brought his own character to life very well, but he is no ken stott who played in the first 4 series. having said that, if you enjoyed the first four, i would recommend this dvd as well.

I first watched Messiah many years ago and fancied a re-run. I didnt have series 5 on DVD so ordered this. This is such a brilliant series. If you like a good crime story - A bit gory and quite tense then this is for you. For the time it was released it was quite innovative. The characters are well formed and brilliantly acted and always with a twist at the end. If you have never seen Messiah then start at series one with Ken Stott and you will be hooked. Its BBC drama at its best.

I did not know how I would cope with Marc Warren in the role that Ken Stott did so very well in the previous series of 'MESSIAH' , but was pleasantly surprised.
Whilst not as intense as Red Metcalfe, he is certainly a very good contrast to the darkness of Red.
Still very good script writing, and the supporting cast are more than competent.
Buy it to add to the previous 4 series - you won't be disappointed !

The cast is totally different to the previous Messiahs and unfortunately the characters are not very strong in Messiah 5. The storyline I found interesting and overall I enjoyed the Series but compared to Messiah 1-4 it is poor. Unlike some of the other reviewers I do think it is worth watching but don't expect the same quality of psychological drama as with the previous 4 series or you will be very disappointed.

Enjoyed this very much but have to say not as good as the first 4 in the series. Complete change of cast without any explanation was puzzling but none the less, it made captivating viewing
