Holly Aird (Dr. Wharton) was expecting her second child during season 4 which is why in season 4 her character is nearly always seen standing behind something (or someone in walking shoots) or wearing large coats and lab coats. 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 »
This is a wonderful drama series and I hope there will be much more in the future. Being a fan of CSI (Crime Scene Investigation) but also being a scientist and frustrated with the unrealistic portrayal of scientific procedures in CSI, I'm more impressed by Waking the Dead. Frankie strikes me as a thorough person and very professional, she knows how long it takes to analyse a sample of DNA, and its limitations. All the characters in the Cold Case Unit are totally convincing and fascinating people in themselves, especially Trevor Eve's character Boyd. This series continues to be very satisfying and has depths that are lacking in more superficial "murder mysteries". If only all the cold cases in this country could be sorted out by this lot - it would make life easier for many suffering victims of crime.
