Series 1 - 4. The Silent and the Damned - Part Two

Radio Times
Review by:

“Bad blood will out,” Manuela (Kerry Fox) warns her brother Javier; she blames him for her son’s death (he was gored in a bullring). Indeed, bad blood is the motif of this final episode: Javier has it on his hands (gouging an eye from a corpse in the mortuary is just one of his misdeeds), and the wealthy Ortega family is harbouring an appalling secret.

Again there’s a sense of imbalance as high-calibre actors Robert Lindsay, Kenneth Cranham and Bill Paterson show up for minor parts, but let’s
hope Sky complete their ravishing adaptation of Robert Wilson’s four Falcón novels.
