Season 4

Waking the Dead is a British television crime drama series created by Barbara Machin which follows the work of a special police team who investigate "cold cases", usually murders that took place a number of years ago and were never solved.

The series aired in the UK on BBC One from 4 September, 2000 to 11 April, 2011. There are 92 hour-long episodes in nine seasons.

Waking the Dead aired in South Africa on DStv's BBC Entertainment (formerly BBC Prime) channel. See "Seasons" below for seasonal broadcast dates and times.

Season 4 originally aired on BBC Prime from 23 August to 28 September, 2006, on Wednesdays and Thursdays at 21h00. There are 12 episodes in the fourth season.

Season 4

Chief Inspector Boyd and his team are back to reopen the files of more cold cases.

A spectral leader calling himself The Shepherd is inciting vulnerable women to commit murder; a sadomasochistic killer is counting off his victims, leaving the word 'sorry' carved into their skin; and the discovery of an unexploded bomb threatens to bring unforeseen upheaval to the team.

Meanwhile, Boyd's visiting a shrink to deal with his anger management, while an apparently mild-mannered ex-con starts to reveal signs that he's actually well-connected in a sinister crime ring.

Whatever happens, whatever the result, Boyd is determined to get to the bottom of every crime, even if he must examine his own ways of working to unravel the truth.

But the final case of the season brings a shocking turn of events, that will shake the team to its core.
