The Cold Case squad is a crack team of three detectives, a forensic expert and a psychological profiler. Their job is to reopen the files on unsolved murders. In this season, a psychotic killer is the key to an investigation when a victim who survived is harassed by a copycat assailant; a deathbed confession appears to link the hanging of an East End gangster and the assassination of the jury who found him guilty; the team come up against a wall of Whitehall secrecy when a petty burglar is acquitted of murdering a prominent Home Officer advisor; and DCI Boyd makes terrible mistakes while under pressure to discover the truth behind the disappearance of an 18-year-old girl.

The squad investigates four murder mysteries in season two of Waking the Dead. A serial killer behind bars is the key to solving the disappearance of a young woman. A hanged man and his gangster brother are critical to solving murders committed by a dead and mysterious hit man. A high government official as well as a CIA agent stonewall the investigation into the murder of a high profile Whitehall official. The final unsolved mystery reopens a missing person case that happened many years earlier. Typically there are multiple suspects as well as considerable drama as the squad sorts through all of the leads and evidence in each of these cases.

This is an excellent series. I give it 5 out of 5. I really enjoyed it and found it often better than Prime Suspect
