Wire in the Blood

Wire in the Blood

Considered one of the best psychological thrillers to come out of the UK in the last decade, Wire in the Blood focuses on the life and work of Dr. Tony Hill (Robson Green - Touching Evil, Reckless), an eccentric clinical psychologist who possesses the uncanny ability to get inside the head of a killer to help solve their crimes.

DCI Carol Jordan (Hermione Norris) exits the department, and England, unexpectedly leaving Detective Inspector Alex Fielding (Simone Lahbib - Season 4) to take her place. After a rough start, Tony joins up with Alex and her team as they slowly begin to work together, taking on the toughest and seemingly impenetrable cases, to beat the killers and the clock, before they can strike again. An intensely fast paced and thrilling series, that uses a combination of scientific expertise and an obsessive attraction by Dr. Hill to the murderers he must track down. The show borders on the surreal, which adds an additional measure of intensity.

Brilliant, passionate and eccentric ...Rating: 1 likes, 0 dislikes

I found this series especially delightful because Robson Green's character lives within the confines of his own mind. Though he shows remarkable insight into the actions of the violent and deranged, he also displays that phenomenal lack of social consciousness that is particular to geniuses and artists (as in "Yes, I just invented nuclear fission, but no, I didn't know I was supposed to wear socks and shoes to this award ceremony."). This makes for some truly unusual and amusing situations, that help bring levity to the gruesome crimes he investigates. Read more
