One of the advantages of UK drama Silent Witness is that it focuses on not one but two crimes in each two-parter, which means if one episode doesn’t grab your attention the other just might. In this week’s case, both programs will.
It starts with the gruesome discovery of a well-decomposed body in an old building about to be knocked down and rebuilt into lowcost housing; and a father who holds a hospital ward hostage so he can turn off his son’s life support.
Suggestions are the two stories are linked but, either way, this is an emotional rollercoaster of a week.
