The second season of Wire in the Blood is every bit as good as the first, filled with gruesome crimes and twists and turns. All four episodes are included on this dvd - Still She Cries, The Darkness of Light, Right to Silence and Sharp Compassion. Even the weakest of these (the far-fetched The Darkness of Light) is very watchable.
Building on the events of the first season, Clinical Psychologist Dr Tony Hill (Green) and DI/DCI Jordan (Norris) have developed a professional relationship that is very much in the Mulder and Scully mould - one relies on fact and the other on intuition. There is a closeness, trust and caring that suggests more than friendship but never goes beyond. The relationship between the two is pivotal to the series and both leads do a great job.
As with the first dvd, the extras are barely woth mentioning (short interviews with Green, Norris and the author of the books) but this dvd is still worth the money.

Having watched and bought the first series of Wire In the blood on DVD, I couldn't wait for the second series. I love most crime drama's but this really has got the edge that no other has. It might be a bit over the top, but I love it. If you've got the first series it's a must, if not get it anyway.

Wire in the blood series 2 is just as gripping and exciting as the first. Although the second series is a bit more far-fetched than the first, its still one of the most interesting programs on TV. Robson Green suits the part perfectly and Hermione just gives the perfect match.
A must see for all Cracker/Prime suspect fans.
