Waking the Dead
Det. Supt. Peter Boyd (played by Trevor Eve) is the leader of a multi-discipline police team of detectives and scientists, the Cold Case Squad, which investigates old, unsolved murder cases using modern methods and new technology that may not have been available during the original investigation.
"I've been watching the series on BBC America. Turned it on part-way through an episode and haven't turned away yet. It is exceptionally well-written and well-acted and positively disturbing. Love it. I was especially impressed with the most recent episode, "Into Thin Air." Actually taped it and sent it to my sister the mystery buff, who doesn't have cable. She passed it on to our parents (who don't have cable, either). Mom wants to see more. If anyone from the BBC is reading this, PLEASE SEND MORE!"
"The Bottom Line: "Absolutely fabulous" I love this programme - and I'm gutted that the current series has had to end! But, having said that, I can't wait for series six. Bring it on (fast please!)!!! This programme is not just about DNA matching and stuff (if you want that watch CSI), but it involves so much more. The back stories of the characters all come in, and there is often a lot of doubt if an old case of somebody on the team is called into question. Superb acting, great writing and brilliant direction all make this programme what it is - FANTASTIC!"

"Trevor Eve is is simply excellent,as is all the cast. Together they try and solve cases which have gone "Cold". The direction and script are wonderful, well put together and acted with so much heart. Those who haven't seen it yet, I recommend you do soon."
