And Then I Fell in Love - Part One

Series 15 - Episode 11 And Then I Fell in Love - Part One



If the plotting in Silent Witness was as immaculate as its sense of style, it would be the best crime show on TV. What the series does very well is film horrible, upsetting stories with such lovingly art-directed care that we’re seduced one minute and repulsed the next.
In this episode, for instance, while the pathologists joke around in their lovely clothes and stylish apartments, the main plot concerns an Asian gang grooming white schoolgirls with drugs and jewellery, then sexually exploiting them.

It’s really nasty stuff, and we flit uncomfortably between the two worlds with the nagging sense that the script is dwelling on the horrors of the abuse a little too pointedly.
Meanwhile, Harry and Nikki share a takeaway and listen to Coldplay in her flat. Is it me or are they flirting?


Part one of two. Nikki sees a barefoot girl being knocked over by a car, marking the beginning of a case that takes the team into the harrowing world of sex grooming and teenage prostitution. The police know the girl has been abused and suspicion soon falls on her stepfather. Meanwhile, an early-morning bath saves Harry's life, and two puzzling corpses are brought in to the centre - a heavily tattooed man and a decomposed body found at the airport. Guest starring Sanjeev Bhaskar, Elyes Gabel and Madeline Duggan.
