Storyline

Tony Hill finds himself in unfamiliar surroundings when he travels to Texas to assist the local district attorney in the case of Darius Grady who is accused of murdering his wife and two children. Tony had already met Grady when the latter was stationed at a US military base near Bradfield and was charged with the rape of a local 15-year old. He was sent home by the military before he could be prosecuted in the UK but is using the same defense in the murder of his family as he did then: that he is suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder resulting from his service in Iraq. While he doesn't find that Grady is suffering from PTSD, Tony finds far too many holes in the case for him to believe Grady is guilty. Written by garykmcd

Tony in Texas
20 June 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Dr. Tony Hill travels to Texas to be an expert witness in "Prayer of the Bone," a special episode of "Wire in the Blood."

Tony is there to assist the local district attorney in the case of Darius Grady, who has confessed to murdering his wife and two young children. Tony knows Grady from a time when Grady was stationed at a U.S. military base near Bradfield and was charged with the rape of a 15-year-old. The military spirited him out of the U.S. before he could be prosecuted. However, Grady's defense is the same one he used in England: he has PTSD from his service in Iraq.

Tony does not think Grady suffers from PTSD. He's also not sure Grady is guilty.

Tony wanted to stay in a place like Linda Hamilton did in "Terminator," so he's at some awful motel. And it's hot.

This is a strange episode with too many characters who came and went before we got to know them, and people acting strangely for no reason. Tony is much funnier in this episode than he usually is, and the atmosphere certainly is Texan. One feels the heat. (It was filmed in Austin.)

I think I prefer the handsome Tony at home among his people, but this was a nice change. I especially liked the female judge (Jennifer Griffin) - she was excellent.
