SILENT WIT­NESS, ABC1, 8.30pm

Herald Sun - Switched On - - Friday -

WE open with a mon­tage that sets up the back­story of a mur­dered fac­tory owner so quickly it could be mis­taken for a re­cap of a pre­vi­ous episode. You won’t think that though, be­cause it’s in­ter­cut with a cage-fight­ing match. This seems a puz­zling meta- phor for the busi­ness world, un­til you re­alise it’s just a way of in­tro­duc­ing Emilia Fox’s new on­screen part­ner, Jack (David Caves), who re­places former ‘‘ on again/off again’’ guy Harry (Tom Ward). Fea­tur­ing nasty union­ists, il­le­git­i­mate chil­dren and shad­owy es­corts, the mys­tery un­furls like a flower as more and more in­for­ma­tion is re­vealed.
