In the pilot episode Boyd had a wife and baby. However by S1 he is very much single and instead has an elder son, who is missing. See more »
In "Cold Fusion", the final episode of Series Five, Grace reads through Clifford Day's criminal record and mentions that, in 1979, he was charged with "conspiracy under the Data Protection Act". However, the UK did not get a Data Protection Act until 1984. See more »
I'd like to put out, how much i am addicted to Waking the Dead. To be honest with you i'm probably obsessed, i have never missed an episode, have them all on DVD and i still watch them. Trevor Eve is a great actor, who is so good at playing Boyd. Sue Johnston is amazing, she is my idol and she too plays Grace well. Wil Johnson is a good actor, plays Spence as if he is the cool guy, I don't know what to say about Holly Aird and Claire Goose apart from that I wish them luck in the future and that their characters will never be forgotten. The Waking the Dead, team gets better at solving cases and the story lines get stronger and better all the time, the writers push it to the limits and this is why i love the show, many others will agree. That is why it has been so successful. I hope the next series is going to be as good despite the loss of two strong characters.
