Wire in the Blood

Show Tidbits
Wire in the Blood was nominated for the Edgar Allan Poe Award twice. Once in 2005 for Best Television Feature or Mini-Series Teleplay and in 2006 for Best Television Feature or Mini-Series Teleplay for the episode "Redemption".
According to author and creator Val McDermid he took the title Wire in the Blood from a line in T.S. Eliot's Burnt Norton (1935), the first of the Four Quartets. Metaphorically it represents the feeling of adrenaline pulsing through one's veins.

The trilling wire in the blood
sings below inveterate scars
appeasing long-forgotten wars.
The dance along the artery
the circulation of the lymph
are figured in the drift of stars
