Messiah V sees Marc Warren take over as lead actor in the series, appearing as new character DCI Joseph Walker. The series, although loosely connected with the four original series, features an entirely new cast, new writer (this series having been written by Oliver Brown), and largely new format. The plot of this series centers around a massacre in a crack den, followed by an acid attack, the murder of two sisters and a victim discovers with a missing heart.
