Reviewed on 3/19/2016...
Waking the Dead is a BBC TV series with 9 seasons (2000 - 2011). OUTSTANDING cast of British actors. British Drama at it's best.

DCI Peter Boyd hunts a killer who murdered a schoolgirl five years earlier. Then the killer contacts him saying he's abducted another girl. Could exhuming the murderer's first victim provide vital clues?

DCI Peter Boyd's new "Cold Case" unit believes that the killer of a young girl found in a landfill site is the man they're looking for in a similar case five years earlier. Tensions arise between the two teams investigating the two crimes, conflicts within the unit, and a killer who seems to delight in taunting the police, especially Boyd.

Another great show from the Beeb !
Andrew I. Munro Sr. | Park City, Utah, United States | 09/21/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)

"The premise was original when this show launched.....crime team reopen closed cases and solve old murder mysteries. Since which time there have been several American versions, none of which compare to the original. The show tends to be bleak and US viewers may find it a tad slow going, but the acting is first rate, especially from Sue Johnston from the 80's Channel 4 soap 'Brookside'. Trevor Eve does what he always does...ie. look very sombre, serious and worried all the time. Since his first series on British TV "Shoestring' over 20 years ago, he continues to act the only way he is able...very one dimensional ! But the show is brilliantly made, as only the BBC can.
I am so very grateful that finally these British shows are making it to Amazon.com as the exchange rate...Dollar to Sterling was killing me on Amazon.co.uk. !"
Great British Mystery...

"I first saw this show on BBCAmerica about 6 years ago and was instantly a fan. I am a fan of shows such as CSI:, CSI:Miami, and had seen some of the Cold Case episodes. I do agree with the reviewer above that the episodes are a little slower than the shows here in the US, but Waking the Dead has such great actors and the characters really drive the storylines. Trevor Eve and Susan Johnston play off each other very well. Claire Goose, Will Johnston and Holly Aird who make up the rest of the team are equally compelling. Looking forward to more of this series making it to DVD here in the states. A little disappointed that there were no commentaries or extras but I'm not going to complain because it seem to take forever for British shows to make it on to Region 1 DVDs. Hopefully BBC/BBCAmerica can make that happen a bit more quickly."

"This is a great series. Great characters and plots. The pilot was not shown on BBC America so I enjoyed seeing that. I look forward to release of the following seasons."
