Series 1 - 3. The Silent and the Damned - Part One

Radio Times
Review by:
Patrick Mulkern

The drama picks up two months after Javier Falcón’s discovery of his own family’s appalling secrets, and he’s still smarting. While we gawp at the Seville scenery – and struggle to accept Robert Lindsay, Kenneth Cranham, Bill Paterson, Henry Goodman and Emilia Fox as Spaniards – this adaptation of Robert Wilson’s book The Silent and the Damned gives Falcón two grisly murders to solve. One involves a tongue being hacked out. It’s a delirious watch.
