The assault cropped up on CCTV, likewise the theft of a hand-bag stolen from hospital lab employee Veronica, in fact a Serb refugee who escaped as a small child and lives with her father Dr. Milan Vaspovic.Eve identifies the bag as having contained pure opium which Veronica and her two male Serb accomplices try to recover from the thieves, street kids who knew Boyd's son,Luke. Boyd gets to it first whilst failing to arrest Veronica whilst Eve takes a call to say that Luke is dead. Written by don @ minifie-1

Did You Know?


[Eve has examined a grave containing a mother and son]
Dr. Eve Lockhart: Her son, crucially, hadn't been circumcised.
Detective Superintendent Peter Boyd: And he would have been?
Dr. Eve Lockhart: Oh definitely. Local Muslim boys are circumcised at the age of eight - as soon as they can recite the Koran.
Detective Superintendent Peter Boyd: [sarcastically] Hardly an incentive to learn, is it?

Crazy Credits

Disclaimer: "A recent episode of Waking the Dead: Duty and Honour: Part 1 (2008) included a character called John Garret, a former army officer working in the security industry for a company called APX Solutions. The BBC would like to make it clear that John Garret and APX Solutions were entirely fictional and were not intended to bear any similarity to Jonathan Garratt of Erinys International, to who we apologise for the embarrassment caused."

Gripping episode
3 April 2010 | by (Alkmaar, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

The last episode of WTD 8th season is easily the best of this pack and makes for some intense viewing. The story in todays UK relates back to the war in Bosnia in the 1990s. The flashback scenes with a mother (a stunning performance by Branka Katic) and her children are breathtaking. It is a complicated story and deserves full attention. The regular cast is in top form (they always are): Tara Fitzgerald gets some extra screen time because of her involvement after the war, Sue Johnston as Grace and Trevor Eve as Peter Boyd who's reunion with his son Luke comes to a dramatic conclusion here. One word of criticism: why did they have to cast Sean Harris for the role of Radovan?
