Show Summary

Welcome to the Wire in the Blood guide at TV.com. Based on characters in the novels by Val McDermid, Wire in the Blood centres around Dr. Tony Hill, a clinical psychologist who is able to tap into his own dark side to get inside the heads of serial killers. Working with vice squad detectives, Hill takes on tough and seemingly impenetrable cases in an attempt to track down the killers before they strike again. Set in the fictional Yorkshire town of Bradfield, the show is a fast-paced and thrilling ride that borders on the surreal, adding an additional measure of intensity.

  • SUPERB DRAMA!

    I found Wire in the Blood purely by accident and I am now a die-hard fan. It's quite dark, with just enough wit to keep you from falling over the edge into the great abyss. The intelligent and complex story line demands focus to follow clearly, and make you think. Sometimes the jumps in logic can seem a bit far fetched, but that is what makes it interesting and fun, without having to be a series of mindless chase scenes and explosions. Robson Green is incredibly impressive (and maybe a little bit scary) as eccentric psychological profiler Dr. Tony Hill, and Hermione Morris does a great job as tough DI Carol Jordan, a woman in what is still very much a man's world. All the characters have distinct and believable personalities. All in all, this series is great fun.moreless

    I absolute love this programme, purely because of Robson Green. He plays Tony Hill so brilliantly. He is intelligent yet vulnerable, sexy yet unobtainable. He does not always get the answer right at first but he always gets there in the end showing several other possibilities on the way. The intrigue and mystery stays all the way through the programme, along with will they or wont they with the two main characters falling for each other. Come on Robson give us some more.moreless

    the chemistry between the 2 main characters is good, the plots are generally well written, if you like crime shows about serial killers, then this is well worth a look
  • Great show but: Are they experimenting with the camera work now?

    7.5
    Season 6 started strongly but when we get to episode 5 I get the impression someone is trying too hard on the camera work for artistic effect. Perhaps it's meant to unsettle the viewer for greater impact from the plot. To be honest, I just found it really annoying. Did somebody honestly think this scene would be better if shot from behind a pot plant? or behind a open filing cabinet? The camera was then contrived out of focus on the edges periodically, fisheyed, and then darted from one actor to the next with an abundance of hyperactive zeal! Great Plots and I really like the understated, carrier bagged, Dr. Tony Hill and others. Hope they desist from further artistc excesses!moreless

    I am new to British TV but I continue to be amazed at the quality(if not quantity) of their series'. Wire in the blood is one of the best shows I have ever seen. Robson Green as Tony is just off center enough to be eccentric but likeable. He gets fed information and then mulls it over in his mind until it takes shape. His behavior may seem odd, even slightly crazy, but Tony is just working things out in his own way. What I like most is how vulnerable Tony seems. He is not savvy or particularly social; his brilliance actually hinders him. This show is amazing and a must see for any mystery/ police drama fan.moreless
