Robson Green (Rocketman, Reckless) stars as Dr. Tony Hill in Wire in the Blood, based on the best-selling novels by Val McDermid. In the season premiere, Tony is invited to Texas as an expert witness in a case where an Iraq combat veteran has confessed to brutally slaughtering his wife and two young children. His defense team claims that he�s suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, but the prosecution asks Tony, who met with the soldier in the UK, to join them in disproving that claim.
