Very much enjoyed this season after "taking a hiatus". Of course Tara Fitzgerald draws me back, but the drama is a little less psychological and the grittier episodes are balanced with somewhat more upbeat stories. Worth watching also for new character, a former police woman, who adds a different attitude, and stands up more to Boyd character.

It was O.K for a home TV movie. I was entertained and interesting. But it was NOT worth the long library wait or the price to rent from a Red Box. I fast forwarded a lot but not all the way.

The four cold cases in season eight of Waking the Dead are dark and complex. The first case is an investigation into a double murder that took place in the 60s. The case revolves around twins who didn't know that the other twin existed as well as Greek gangsters. DS Stella Goodman gets shot protecting one of the twins and she subsequently takes her leave from the team. A rape and murder case that took place twelve years earlier is reopened beginning a hunt for the two rapists who committed the crimes. The third case is very eerie as the team investigates disaster relief workers who smuggle people into the country so that they can harvest their organs for transplant. Finally Linda Cummings the former prison guard and serial killer instigates an investigation into two deaths at the secure mental facility where she is imprisoned. DCI Boyd and Linda play a cat and mouse game as they try to outwit each other.
