Unlike most crime series, Silent Witness isn’t content with just one body. After 10 or so piled up in the first episode of season 15, episode two kicks off with two and a half found in a family home – a mother and daughter dead, the son in a coma. Forensic pathologist Harry ( Tom Ward) has trouble keeping his investigation impartial, as he knows the family and can’t believe the father would have done it. Could the boy in the coma be hiding the answer?
Random fact: Drew Barrymore ( pictured) is the executive producer roducer of this attempt at an edgy answer to MasterChef. Perhaps that t explains the celebrity- ish guests who show up to heckle the contestants: ants: Bijou Phillips ( Raising Hope) in this first episode, then the likes es of Elijah Wood and Jason Lee. It’s all meant to have the air of an n underground food fight club – secret battles in LA restaurants nts after they’ve closed their doors for the night.
