Publisher's Summary

Hugo Speer stars as John Stone in Series 5-7 of the gritty, fast-paced crime drama created by Danny Brocklehurst

Manchester detective DCI Stone and his team are faced with ten complex, morally challenging cases in this collection of hard-hitting radio dramas.

As Series 5 opens, Stone is still reeling from the mishandled shooting of Callum Gartside, a gunman who had murdered his own family. With his personal life in tatters, he must find the strength to hold it together and do his job. In Dirt by Martin Jameson, he investigates a body in a flooded gravel pit; in Blood Money by Richard Monks, he looks into the hit-and-run killing of a cyclist; and in A Cut Above by Marcia Layne, he looks into a suspected case of female genital mutilation. Progress, by Alex Ganley, finds him searching for the murderer of a garden centre owner; while Broken, by Vivienne Harvey, centres around a missing pregnant woman.

Series 6 includes Disclosure by Richard Monks, Wishing Well by Alex Ganley and Dan Allum, Casualties by Martin Jameson, and Damage by Vivienne Harvey. In these four episodes, Stone unearths dark secrets following an arson attack on a school; struggles to find the truth about a dead body on an abandoned travellers’ site; hits an unexpected obstacle in a murder investigation and goes undercover after a series of suspicious deaths among the homeless community.

In Silence, Series 7 follows one case across ten episodes, written by Martin Jameson, Richard Monks, Cath Staincliffe, Alex Ganley and Vivienne Harvey. After a fire at a hostel, a body is found – but who is he? Stone’s enquiries lead him to re-examine a murder investigation from twenty years before, and uncover a web of lies and deceit that make him confront his past mistakes and lead to personal trauma.

Flawed but exciting.

My only real criticism lies in the performance of and the character of DCI Stone. Hugo Speer delivers every line with a world-weary sigh ... every line. He even world-weary sighs when he has no line. Also, he is thoroughly unlikeable. Not sure why the authors have made him such a prick. Terrible father. Faithless husband. Good cop, except when he's thundering in an interrogation or going soft on female suspects or other authority figures, like his boss. But, a very gripping story, well planned and executed. Some unnecessarily long diatribes by Ms. Jackie in the final story, but overall very engaging. Kudos to Craig Cheetham and Deborah McAndrew for their strong performances. Ultimately, I would have preferred to see Mike Tanner as the protagonist. Better man.

Moved me to tears

These three series of Stone are magnificent audio drama. The characters grow, transform and truly engage. The stories are excellent and very believable. The final episode of series 7 is powerful like nothing I've heard before- and I write AD, and listen to a ton! Hats off to Danny Brocklehurst and his crew of writers, the actors and directors of this outstanding drama. I certainly hope there will be more because these characters are absolutely real to me.

Bravo.

Not Bedside Reading

Loud sirens,ambulances and people yelling at each other... Not my cup of tea. Better as a TV performance.

Realism

I wanted to put 5 stars for overall and performance as well but it won’t let me
The characters are wonderful as are the gritty story lines. Usually I am not a fan if mixing personal stories in with the main plot but in this case it works for obvious reasons of work versus home life. Well done writer actors and directors. Loved it

Feels very real, I’d like to find more like that

That is some reeeally good audio series. First of all: marvelous acting and great sound effects. It doesn’t feel at all like actors recording a script, but as a real action going on in various places and conditions. Everything is very natural!
There are some funny moments along with heartbreaking ones (like the final dialogue of series 7). I was also glad to hear Alice as an active character of series 7, who plays important role in the plot.
I’ve been looking for something like that since finished this collection.
