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.
Dr. Frankie Wharton:
I don't like the way the semen was left, though.
Det. Supt. Peter Boyd: So how do you like your semen left, Frankie?
In series 5, episode 1, the date on the CCTV camera shows "12 Sept 2005", but the CCTV shots from episode 2 show "15 Jan 2005", even though the plot leads us to believe the two episodes are chronological.
US broadcasts were cut down to approximately 50 minutes per episode to allow room for commercials.
