Silent Witness

Series 15 - 7. Redhill - Part One

Radio Times
Review by:
Jane Rackham

Out for a head-clearing drive one night, Leo happens upon a concussed woman covered in blood after she apparently crashed her car. She dies in his arms. DI Bridges (Gillian Kearney) is convinced the husband is the culprit, but as the victim was a prison inspector who, with her colleague, was investigating a suspicious death inside the notorious Redhill Prison, Harry, Nikki and Leo are not so sure.

The prison officers are not exactly forthcoming, and that, along with a shockingly brutal closing scene that will stay with you for hours, seems to prove that the docs are right to be distrustful. Concludes tomorrow.

About this programme

7/12. Part one of two. There is little sympathy when child-killer James Wade dies in his cell, but Leo's encounter with dying ex-prison inspector Rachel Kruger compels him to investigate the notorious Redhill jail - only to come up against a wall of silence. Meanwhile, Harry meets Wade's sister Miriam and agrees to help find her brother's killer. Forensic crime drama, starring William Gaminara, Emilia Fox and Tom Ward, with Juliet Aubrey, Gillian Kearney and Jaye Griffiths.
