DCSI Mike Walker and DCI Roisin Connor are back for more crime fighting in Trial & Retribution Set 6. Releasing from Acorn Media on January 1, 2013, this set presents the four concluding mysteries from the hit British series created and written by Emmy nominee and BAFTA winner Lynda La Plante. If you’re new to the series, the Trial & Retribution concept is very similar to Law & Order, taking viewers from the crime scene to the forensics laboratory and from police headquarters to the courtroom.
Set 6 episodes aired in the UK in 2008-2009 as Volume XIX: Tracks, Volume XX: The Siren, Volume XXI: Ghost Train, and Volume XXII: Shooter. These episodes feature an investigation into a teenager’s murder, the sensational automobile accident and death of a man and his famous fiancee, a teenager’s fatal fall from a Ferris wheel, and a jewelry robbery gone wrong. They have never been aired in the U.S. before.
Starring David Hayman (Sid and Nancy) as DCSI Mike Walker and Victoria Smurfit (About A Boy, Ballykissangel) as DCI Roisin Connor, two dedicated investigators on the London police force. The series follows each of their cases from the scene of the crime to the jury’s verdict, portraying with uncompromising realism the professional and personal pressures which these profoundly committed detectives endure. The series co-stars Dorian Lough as DS David “Satch” Satchell and Vince Leigh as DS Sam Palmer. Special guests include Roy Marsden (P.D. James’ mysteries), Vincent Regan (Lockout, 300), Benjamin Whitrow (Pride and Prejudice), and Sally Dexter (Dalziel & Pascoe, Sugartown).
If you’re a fan of the series you’re going to want to see these final episodes. The characters grow even closer in these last four episodes and the story arcs are even stronger and grittier than any which have come before. Available as of January 1, 2013, don’t miss Trial & Retribution Set 6.
