HASH(0x89c02b94) out of 5 stars ADULTS 5-star Content--COURSE CRIME--TOUGH COP--TENDER HEART 29 Jan. 2013
By Harold Wolf - Published on
Format: DVD
A strong stomach helps while viewing DCI Bain's final series. Mysteries bathed in blood, crime, grit, disgust, death, violence--but also with some rustic, rugged, Welch scenery, & touching father/daughter moments. Welch graphic crime thriller footage and engaging suspense, makes Bain (Philip Madoc--"The Rivals of Sherlock Holmes" "The Last of the Mohicans") is a crack police investigator, a widower, a father of a young girl, with the toughness of "Callan" (British thriller series). You may turn away at some of the blood and violence but never turn the set off. Who-what-how-when-where is too complex and draws the viewer to a must-find-out conclusion. His tenderness toward his daughter and the sometimes excess of episode murders resemble "Midsomer Murders" (a must hit series). Rough & gritty like "Murphy's Law".

"Contains nudity and graphic scenes" -true to the extreme! Specifically, "A MIND TO KILL SERIES 1" is abundant with violence, male and female nudity, blood, foul language, sex, mutilation, race issues, family violence, homosexuality, drug use, and other derelictions that exist alongside murders. NOT FOR KIDS or the squeamish! Unrated Welsh detective drama. But it is well written, high-suspense, thriller mystery drama.

Now for DIEhards, the dark and bloody episode details:
Series 1
...1 BLACK SILENCE: DCI Bain looks into the murder of a prostitute who witnessed a scab beating by strikers. Labor leader involved? A riff divides Bain's team with the local police, leading to a dramatic conclusion.
...2 WHITE ROCKS: Small Luke witnesses his mom beaten to death. He runs and is helped in hiding. Sick/sinister activity in this holiday park inspires secrets and killings?
...3 GAMEBOYS: A youth found charred in a pig pit and confirmed to be a "rent boy." A nearby local man commits suicide by hanging. Bain's daughter thinks she loves a rugby player.
...4 REST NOT SECURE: Daughter Hannah resents dad as a cop and leaves. Bain's work & thought is distracted. A gang-style war gets Bain, a suspect, and the suspect's mom shot.
...5 SON OF HIS WORKS: A body, nude, run over, beaten, and shot, appears to have also first dug his own grave. A religious hippie compound, drugs, dollars, the victim's daughter, all near the murder scene, looks related.
...6 RACHEL HARDCASTLE: Hannah is still unhappy living with Dad. Bain ignores one and gets flirtatious with a concert pianist. In the meantime a toy model car builder's wife is killed & YOU get to watch the splattering & details.

Series 2
...1 BLOODLINE--2 suicides? A pact? There's more to be found, including another body.
...2 DEATH WATCH- A charred body is found where vigilante locals mock justice. This road to murder is ugly-a typical case for Bain.
...3 GAME PLAN- Seaside resort. Bain goes undercover to find hard evidence. Daughter Hannah pops up. Welsh spring break, including drinking nude bathers.
...4 HEAD OF THE VALLEYS- Wealth & power on the wrong side of the law. An old corpse leads to an ongoing crime dynasty not opposed to bloody, ruthless, tactics.
...5 INHERITANCE- Business capitalists vs environmentalists in a small village in Wales. Violent deaths come in a series bringing Bain to investigate and into the conflict's center. Includes bodies in the buff-not for kids.
...6 STRANGE TERRITORY- A Celtic burial ground gains a teenage body. Bain finds both a boyfriend & a psychic to be suspect while family of the victim moves toward their own dark version of justice. Hannah gets a bit frisky.
...7 GREEN WOUNDS- Less blood-accelerated suspense! Bain has continuing nightmares of his wife's death. Seeking revenge he stalks the man at the same time Hannah is being stalked.

Series 3
...1 SHADOW FALLS- Welch DCI back after a leave. Child suicide at a waterfall, but Bain digs deeper at his daughter Hannah's suggestion.
...2 BOX- Crime is a psychotic, pervert, kidnapper who kills. While this investigation progresses, Bain tries to deal with Hannah--at the station--a new copper--soon in danger.
...3 THE LITTLE HOUSE IN THE FOREST- Did the forest dwelling pedophile kill a teenage girl? Bain teams with a young cop to solve this case--much to her dismay.
...4 SOUNDBITES- Fire is the chosen form of revenge for an abandoned son with a schizophrenic mom & politician dad.
...5 THE INNER LIFE OF STRANGERS- Wales Pop Singer star, Meesh, retires & heads home. First one, then another, and another connections are murdered. Bain must try to stop her from being a next victim.
...6 COLOUR BLIND- Racial tension leads to a death. It will require Bain & his crime team to keep this community from a violent eruption. Racism & Relationships cross.
...7 ENGINEER- A post-surgical coma causes parents to act desperately. The Doc's daughter disappears in a bloody trail. Can Bain's team stop additional tragedy?
...8 BLOOD AND WATER- A foster brother kills pregnant sister. The killer's blood brother (a cop) covers for him. A murderous family mess of a crime for Bain. The homey final scene is a smashing way to end "A MIND to KILL" final episode.

HASH(0x89c02be8) out of 5 stars WONDERFUL WELSH INITIATION 11 April 2013
By Garnet M. Taylor - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This product is the first I've gotten involved with Wales as a setting, and has been a remarkable initiation into the Welsh language, etc. (Not to mention the lead detective's (Phili Madoc) performance.) Mr. Madoc's interpretation is, in and of itself, as titillating as the original stories that are so unique. I'd recommend to anyone who appreciates quality stories, plots, and acting to grab this at your earliest convenience. It's a shame that Mr. Madoc is no longer with us to provide more of this "goodie".

HASH(0x8a55036c) out of 5 stars A mixed bag but enjoyable 28 Jun. 2013
By Harold L. Firestone - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
The collection included three years of episodes. The first two were interesting but dark and small screen which were okay but not great. The third year was awesome, now showing in full screen, excellent photography and even a more interesting cast. If there are further episodes, I am in.

HASH(0x8c7315d0) out of 5 stars SUPERB !!!!! 27 April 2015
By They - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I first encountered this series in 1994 when it aired on S4C (British Channel 4 in Wales). It was broadcast in Welsh with English subtitles; and, even though I dislike subtitles because they're so much work, I eagerly awaited the next episodes. The late Philip Madoc (d. 2012) produces a most personable lead character; one never tires of his mellifluous voice (reminiscent of Richard Burton.) The Welsh accents in this series are quite strong but, if needed, there are English subtitles. The 21 stories are all interesting and well-acted; they are not as gritty, violent or dark as many recent series and nothing is gratuitous. And, at over 90 minutes long, the plots are intricate enough to hold attention throughout. Haunting theme music from a celtic flute. It's a shame this series isn't better known; it's one of the best.
