Wire in the Blood Series Five

Robson Green and Simone Lahbib are back on the trail of horrific and callous serial killers in a new series of the hard-hitting and acclaimed ITV1 drama WIRE IN THE BLOOD from Coastal Productions.

Robson Green plays clinical psychologist Dr Tony Hill, whose uncanny ability to see into the minds of murderers affects him deeply as he finds it difficult to distance himself from disturbing cases.

Simone Lahbib is DI Alex Fielding, who has learned to trust that Tony’s intuition can sometimes mean the key to cracking a case when physical evidence is hard to come by.

The four new, feature-length episodes see Alex and Tony join forces to hunt down the men or women responsible for a catalogue of terrifying and shocking killings.

The drama also stars Emma Handy as DC Paula McIntyre and Mark Letheren as DS Kevin Geoffries.

 

Episode 1: The Colour of Amber

When a young girl is abducted from a housing estate, Alex and Tony know they may only have hours to get her back alive.  While Alex launches an Amber alert – a massive public appeal – Tony builds a profile of likely suspects.  A distraught mother reports her daughter Janita as missing, but the Amber alert produces no information.  Is the abduction all it seems?


On the edge of a troublesome housing estate a woman sees a young girl being snatched by a man in a car. Alex (Simone Lahbib) and her team know their chances of finding the girl alive decrease sharply after the first hour. Only one per cent of abduction cases survive beyond a day. New ACC James Morrison (Christopher Colquhoun) reacts by calling an Amber alert, which floods the media with public pleas for information. He also pulls Tony (Robson Green) in to help with profiling likely abductors.

Episode 2: Nocebo

Black magic is the theme when Alex investigates the deaths of a teenage girl and a young boy, who bear signs of ritual killings.  The trail leads to animal sacrifices and paintings in blood.  As the investigation turns personal, Tony remains sceptical but Paula and Kevin appear to be cursed by voodoo dolls.  Then Alex and her son become the killer’s latest targets.

A teenage girl and a young boy are found dead bearing signs of what appear to be ritual killings.  Alex (Simone Lahbib) is upset by the lack of care shown by their bereaved families as she’s having problems of her own with her son Ben (Thomas Byrne).

The trail leads to links with a property tycoon who’ll stop at nothing to get the rent paid, a preacher whose “healing” activities involve animal sacrifice, and a self-styled artist whose works not only depict violence but are painted in blood.

For Tony (Robson Green) the dead bodies could be a warning and he puzzles over what the killer might want to gain and why.  Is this religion?  A curse?  A threat?  Is it one killer or two - with one suspect the acolyte of another?

Episode 3: The Names of Angels

Two career women are found raped and strangled in Bradfield wearing the clothes and identities of other victims killed years earlier in Europe.  The trail leads Tony and Alex to successful businessmen – but are they guilty or victims of identity fraud?  As he tries to unravel the deadly puzzle, Tony faces a problem of his own when 18-year-old released killer Jack turns up on his doorstep. 

Tony (Robson Green) is faced with a series of deadly puzzles when a killer rapes and strangles young female victims in Bradfield but chooses to dress and identify them as young women he killed several years before in Europe.  Why is he boasting to police about his past, leaving the bodies where they can easily be found?  And why - and how- is he choosing confident, successful victims from the world of business, and killing in Bradfield?

Episode 4: Anything You Can Do

When a vulnerable elderly woman is suffocated in her own home, Alex and Tony suspect Bernard Kelly, a security guard who has a dysfunctional relationship with his mother.  But when the killings escalate, it appears to be the work of more than one murderer.  Could the deaths be connected to the sudden return of Tony’s old hero, respected psychologist Jonathan Goode?

The murder of an elderly woman, suffocated in her own home, seems too deliberately staged to be an accident of robbery. And when Alex (Simone Lahbib) calls in Tony (Robson Green) he realises that the killer will strike again. To set a trap, Tony and Alex hold a public meeting which Tony predicts the killer will be unable to resist attending.  At the meeting, Tony’s profile of the murderer sees one member of the public stand out as prime suspect – thuggish security guard Kelly (Ian Peck), who lives with his overbearing mother and has also been seen near the scene of crime by several witnesses - including frightened local man Donovan (Ken Bradshaw).
