Summary

DCI Greave is on the hunt for serial killers in this gripping Radio 4 full cast crime series.

Series 1:

Each Roman Catholic parish compiles a Book of the Dead from the lists of departed loved ones submitted by parishioners. Printed on the front of the envelopes are three words: November Dead List. In this series, a young priest opens one such envelope and discovers not a list of the dead but a list of people he knows to be alive and members of his congregation. At first he thinks it's someone's idea of a joke. Then the people named start turning up dead. 

Greave is played by Nicola Walker

Series 2:

Set in rural Norfolk, one of the lowest crime areas in the country, DCI Greave leads a team investigating two potentially linked murders. Both victims had their heads shaved antemortem, and Greave discovers a link to a case in London a couple of years ago: the Dead List murders. At each crime scene, she's found prayer cards depicting Christian martyrs whose deaths correspond to the victims in her case.

Greave is played by Lia Williams

Listen with the lights on

Series 1 was brilliantly performed b the cast and quite scary towards the end. I'm waiting for daylight to proceed with series 2. Well done, everyone. I wish the BBC would release more audio work done by Nicola Walker,

Great Crime Drama

Really enjoyed this drama, which was well acted and scripted. So engrossing that I listened to it in 1 sitting. The only comment I would make is that I would like to have known who was in the cast and which character they played.

Scary!

An excellent drama with lots of twists and turns to keep you guessing until the very end.
Not recommended as bedtime listening.

Weak Stories Well Performed

Well acted but weakly plotted stories that slowly grind their way to a predictable denouement.
