Fascinating series, though rather explicit. Robson Green is exceptional as Dr. Tony Hill, a brilliant, albeit strange, psychiatrist solving crimes for the British police. The mysteries are complex and challenging. The subplot between the investigators is just enough to provide relief from the intensity of the criminal investigation, which is detailed in both graphic images and vivid descriptions. Not for the weak stomached. The series is very addictive; having the complete set of 1-4 will be handy. Each disc is one 1.5 hour episode (though in season 1, each episode is divided in two).
Intelligent plotting, acting, cinematography, and story line

"Robson Green and a brilliant cast of pplayers bring process series to a new height in this classy psych series. BLOOD IN THE WIRE eclipses the American versions of these kinds of programs. Story lines are mature, intelligent, and explore the profoundly dark sides of human beings in a way that does not merely exploit but seeks to enlighten. The quality of the writing and psychological insight each program brings the audience is a cause for discussion among adults, a group for which American TV rarrely writes."

"I often love BBC mystery/crime drama series. This is one of my favorites. I have watched every episode in Seasons 1-3 at least 4 times in the past 2 years. I admit I am less fond of Season 4. What I love about the series is that the scripts are intelligently written, topics of each episode are different and unusual--rarely ones I've seen on American television, very well-acted. In Seasons 1-3, the dynamic between Tony Hill and Carol Jordan adds further continuity and interest to each episode. Location shooting also further enhances the stories, such as the episode where Jack--a serial rapist, beater, and killer--harms the girls in a former chapel and buries their bodies either in the church cemetary or dumps them in nearby rivers. The only reason I am not fond of Season 4 is that I didn't care for the character replacement for Carol Jordan when actress Hermione Norris left to go to Spooks (Roz Myers). Somehow the feel of the entire show changed, even with many old regulars, and I never personally liked those episodes as much as the earlier ones."
