Detective Superintendent Peter Boyd is the leader of a police team which investigates unsolved murders using modern technology.
The first series secured strong ratings, with episodes 1.3 Waking the Dead: Burn Out: Part 1 (2001) & 1.4 Waking the Dead: Burn Out: Part 2 (2001), receiving 8.4 million viewers and a 38% audience share. Persistently high ratings meant the programme was recommissioned each year for either the summer or winter schedule.
Det. Supt. Peter Boyd:
Thanks, Frankie, this thing's been costing me a fortune!
Dr. Frankie Wharton: I get the pounds, you can keep the fifties!
In S1 Boyd is talking about his missing son who is named Joe in the episode of the Blind Beggar, but in S7 when he turns up, his name is Luke.
US broadcasts were cut down to approximately 50 minutes per episode to allow room for commercials.
