DCI Banks Season 5
1.) Description (Editorial Reviews)
A DCI Banks returns for its grittiest season yet with an explosive serial crime story that weaves through all six episodes. When the victim of a frenzied attack is found in woodland, the team wonder if it s a random killing or related to the location a shrine to a local girl who recently committed suicide there. But when Banks uncovers a link to local crime boss Steve Richards, he formulates a theory of his own.
2.) Special Features
Elsewhere what starts out as a missing person s case soon escalates into a kidnap and ransom. And Banks and the team have a painful job finding out how a recent tragedy occurred. While Chief Superintendent Anderson puts pressure on DI Helen Morton to close the case, Banks becomes increasingly certain this is all down to one man crime boss Steve Richards.
4.) Top Customer Reviews
The last three years have taken a dreadful toll on my favorite British policemen:
-- "Foyle's War" ended in 2015 after eight seasons.
-- "New Tricks" ended in 2015 after twelve seasons.
-- "Inspector Lewis" ended in 2016 after nine seasons.
-- "DCI Banks" ends in 2017 after five seasons.
-- "George Gently" will end in 2017 after eight seasons.
We may come to look back on the last ten years as the Golden Age of British Police on Television.
Christopher Foyle, Robbie Lewis and George Gently are better known to us Americans than Alan Banks or the eccentric geezers from "New Tricks".
Inspectors Foyle, Lewis and Gently all received national exposure on Masterpiece Mystery.
But my local PBS station (Univ. of Illinois) never broadcast "DCI Banks" or "New Tricks".
I found them at the library and took a chance.
This series is far the best and we are very unhappy that it has been cancelled. In this case rage British writers are making a big mistake. This was the greatest. As good as Midsomer Murders.
