Wire in the Blood

I finished watching all of the episodes from this British TV series broadcast from 2002 to 2008 via Netflix. The last episode I watched was set in Central Texas, as Dr. Tony Hill (Robson Green) traveled to this far-from-Bradfield location on a case. None of the regular co-stars traveled with him, I was sad to see. This special episode, entitled Prayer of the Bone, had all of the requisite Texas themes: rattlesnakes, murder, death penalty issues, drugs, a honky tonk. Tony rented some sort of Mustang to drive around the fictional town of Luther, Texas. The case was a mixture of Fatal Vision and the story of Todd Willingham, currently in the news again. Seeing this last episode (which was originally aired prior to the regular 2008 season) was a fitting way for me to end the series. Now, on to MI-5, known as Spooks in the UK, starring the wonderful Matthew MacFadyen.
