Waking The Dead

On Sundays and 2nd part on Mondays at 9pm on BBC1. Starring Trevor Eve, Sue Johnston, Wil Johnson, Estha Hall, Felicite du Jeu

Last week was the start of the new series of Waking The Dead and I was pleased to see its return as there really isn’t a lot that I like on telly! It’s on its fifth series now, and I only caught it’s fourth for the first time; so if you don’t know what it’s about: a group of cold case police investigators work on reopening and solving crimes.

The new female character wasn’t brought in with a large role straight away in the first episodes, and they dealt with the difficulty of working without Mel (who used to be played by Claire Goose) pretty well, without over-doing it.

I enjoyed watching the first 2 episodes but I think they were being a bit too ambitious with the complicated plot in that story. There were moments where I was getting side-tracked with a magazine on my lap instead of getting drawn into the drama on the telly. I’m hoping this was just an attempt at an interesting story to get people watching this series, and that tonight’s episode will be more of a straightforward who-dunnit muder!

I’ll be watching it again, but I’ll have a magazine ready just in case.

26/09/2005 I am adding to this review:

After watching last night’s and tonight’s episodes, my suspicions are confirmed and these two were far better than last weeks and no magazines were needed!

I was wrong about the character who I thought was staying last week, and actually Mel’s replacement, Stella, appeared on Sunday and was part of the story today. She’s likeable, and I think she’ll be good. I’m looking forward to her story being revealed as there were hints that there’s something more to her than it seems at first.

Like I said, the story was great this week and I really enjoyed watching it. As usual, however, they seem to suddenly run out of time and don’t bother to finish some of the smaller things going on. The dodgy copper who shot the other dodgy guy wasn’t seen getting arrested, and there were loose ends needing tying and it was just an annoying ending. Other than that though, I have no complaints and I’ll be setting my Sky+ on Series Link to record them all so I don’t miss any.

This week is Thyroid awareness week and the 25th of May is World Thyroid Day. It feels like every day of the week and every week of the year is National or International awareness day for something or other. Well, this is mine. I hope we don’t get too weary of these sorts of days and weeks that we become indifferent about them. Anyway, I wrote more about my Hypothyroid disease story on a post a few years ago if you’d like a read of that first; and please scroll down to watch the video I made about it as well…
Rogue theatre company review
Review of The Firebird by the Rogue Theatre Company in Cornwall
August 31, 2018
Imagine, if you will, being met by a fairy at the edge of magical woodland, and led down a secret pathway shaded by old twisted rowan and chattering leaves of beech, but lit by glinting lights strung through the branches. Each way you turn you’re met with strange and eerie settings of mysterious white princess bedrooms, strangely metallic baby clothes hanging on a line; gothic ravens adorning old books; abandoned tea parties disturbingly strewn with red; and odd antique paintings foreseeing the future; each with its character singing, dancing or otherwise performing as you pass. And that’s just the beginning…..
