Whether he's trying to crack a mystery involving internet chat rooms, a deadly hypnotist, DNA evidence or suicide cults, Dr. Tony Hill (played by Robson Green) has an extraordinary understanding of a criminal's mind, which has proven to be an asset to the police in northern England in Wire in the Blood, a series based on characters created by mystery author Val McDermid. Working alongside Detective Inspector Fielding (Simone Lahbib), Hill is able to track down killers by actually visualizing the crimes. His ability to empathize with both victims and killers is something that drives his colleagues crazy, but his theories have time and again proven to be dead-on.
The Wire in the Blood: Season Six DVD set of 4 discs contain the 4 2-part episodes of the 6th and final season that originally aired on ITV1 during the fall of 2008. ITV cancelled the series earlier this year citing high production costs.
