Silent Witness has divided viewers over its latest storyline about care home abuse.
The plot in episode seven of the long-running BBC drama revolved around the suspicious deaths of a number of people living in care homes.
Disabled actress Liz Carr, who plays Clarissa on Silent Witness, spoke about how the storyline was “really personal” and said watching the episodes back made her cry.
“It’s a hard watch,” she added. “She goes through some difficult times and we see some great strength I think with Clarissa.”
But while some viewers praised the storyline and its portrayal:

Others weren’t as impressed, especially by the denouement of the storyline’s first part, which saw suspect Kevin (played by Toby Sams-Friedman) shot by the police:
As if they just shot the disabled person they were looking for. Once they knew it was him there is no way on earth that would have happened. Worst episode of #silentwitness I've ever seen.
