About the Series: Waking the Dead

Recent advances in forensic science, psychological profiling and new technology have revolutionized crime-solving. Now mysteries which have lain dormant for years can be reopened with a good chance of success. The Cold Case squad is a crack team of police investigators. Set up with the specific brief of reopening the files on unsolved cases, they re-examine the evidence and requestion witnesses. If anyone can track down a killer years after a murder, they can.

Leading the hunt is DS Peter Boyd. Haunted by the disappearance of his own teenage son years ago, he is committed to getting at the truth at all costs. Assisting him are a team of expert professionals: psychological profiler Dr Grace Foley, forensic scientist Dr Frankie Wharton, and detectives Amelia (Mel) Silver and Spencer Jordan, Boyd’s second in command. They are the best minds in their field and dedicated to their jobs. But digging up the past can be dangerous. The killer is still on the loose and could strike again…


About Series 2: Waking the Dead

In Series 2, a psychotic killer is the key to an investigation when a victim who survived is harassed by a copycat assailant, a deathbed confession appears to link the hanging of an East End gangster and the assassination of the jury who found him guilty, the team are up against a wall of Whitehall secrecy and a Home Office audit when a petty burglar is acquitted of murdering a prominent Home Officer advisor, and Boyd makes terrible mistakes while under pressure to discover the truth behind the disappearance of an 18-year old girl on Hampstead Heath in 1989.
