DVD review: Waking the Dead: Series 5

Waking the Dead’s fifth series is, on the whole, not up to the standard established by its predecessors, although it does offer some real gems of entertainment at various points throughout its 12-episode run. Like Boyd, the programme may not live in the real world and may at times baffle with its seemingly nonsensical twists and tangents, but, when it’s firing on all cylinders, the journey, however convoluted, is always an engaging one.

Waking the Dead’s seventh series begins airing tonight on BBC1, and, to coincide, I’ve reviewed 2 Entertain’s DVD box set of Series 5, containing all 12 episodes on six discs.
