'Double Bind' is a particular favourite, a wonderfully peculiar episode (as they all are, in their own way) and the funniest scene I've seen in a long time involves Eve using Spence and Stella to remodel the death of two victims killed in the coital position in 'The Fall'.
The 2008 series was just as good and should be out soon and there's an eighth series currently being made, though sadly Du Jeu is not confirmed for the cast which could mean that Stella has been promoted, killed, finally got it on with DI Jordan or been fired for her propensity for slapping witnesses.
Series 6 is one of the best. Consistently good, each story is one on its own, and never fails to amaze. Of the six here, I think Yahrzeit is one of the best. Based around a story of Nazi war criminals escaping from Germany in 1945 and then settling in London. Their secret eventually emerges when Boyd and Co. re-open an unsolved murder case from 1946 which reveals details of an horrific plan to create a "Master Super Race". There is a tragic twist to this story involving one of the children now grown up who is implicated in the murder of a family whose remains are discovered under the concrete floor of a house where the escaped Nazi war criminals resided. Veterna actress Eileen Atkins guest stars.
Mask of Sanity is the next best story. After being released from a secure psychitric unit where he had served many years for murder, James Jensen struggles to find the truth about what really happened in a children's home where he had been badly beaten, and to find some kind of redemption in order to come to terms with what happened all those years before. The team then turn their investigation onto Dr. Bruno Rivelli who had managed the home at the time and he becomes a suspect in three murders. Jemma Redgrave and James Fox guest stars in this absorbing episode. There are some scenes which are pretty violent and distressing in this episode, so be warned.
The Fall is a brilliant episode.Read more ›
Counting the days until Series 7 is released.
Also, throughout this series, there is a sub-plot about Mel Silver, a now deceased ex-member of the cold case team. You are intrigued about this throughout and wonder if there will ever be an answer to your questions...
Wren Boys: This is a "Good" episode. After the first part, you felt it was better than when it concluded, but still a great watch. It was intriguing to try and find out who killed the boy in the concrete pit, and there were a fair few options on who it might be. I felt that this episode was more implausible and would not happen in real life, at least not to the extremes shown here. In a way it was daft, but it was enjoyable and kept you entertained to the end. A good episode, not the best in the series, but series 6 is only just getting started.
Deus Ex Machina: As told above, this is an absolutely AWFUL episode of WTD.Read more ›
