Silent Witness

We all know by now that the Silent Witness pathologists are multi-taskers. Take Nikki who, entirely spuriously, accompanies the detective-of-the-week as she interviews a suspect. Nikki doesn’t like the tone of the conversation and jolly well lets the detective know what she thinks: “She was in pain and you went too far.” And what business is that of yours, Nikki?

But let’s be generous, the cops in this are always such jobsworths that they need all the help they can get. Thankfully Nikki and new friend Jack work everything out. Though you might be scratching your head by the end.

About this programme

2/10. Part two of two. Nikki, Leo and Jack struggle to ascertain how the latest victim was killed and ended up in the Thames. However, when Geraldine Briggs makes a sinister confession about the daughter she gave up for adoption and why she disowned her wealthy family, the course of the investigation changes dramatically. Emilia Fox, William Gaminara and David Caves star, with Sharon Small and Liz Carr.
