The best Police drama on TV
on 25 March 2010
At last Waking the Dead Series 7 is here!
For me, Series 7 is perhaps one of the best series so far. We see Boyd and the team tackle terrorists, the army and war criminals amongst other cold cases. The first episode "Missing Persons" is in particular a highlight. The second episode revives the Boyd and his son story arc and introduces Boyd's nemesis; if you saw series 8 then you will know who I mean.
As always Waking the Dead's fine cast led by the sublime Trevor Eve combined with engaging and vastly interesting stories mean that the show is without question the best British police drama we have. There can be no doubt that it is one of the best serial drama's that the BBC has produced. Whilst the show is compared to others it is massively superior, and none of its police drama stable mates really can compare to it. Its like Fitz and Jane Tennyson have got together to make a cross between Cracker and Prime Suspect set in a cold case unit! Only, its better. Above all else, Waking the Dead is top notch entertainment.
If you are looking for an intriguing, engaging and most importantly, entertaining two hours then buy Waking the Dead!
