After the caregiver of a twelve year old autistic boy is stabbed to death in her home, DCI Lewis and her team discover she had been participating in a dating service and led an active sex life. There are many suspects, but the key to solving the case lies with the only eyewitness to the crime, the autistic son of two of the suspects, but he isn't talking to Janine... or even his own parents.

Murder in its simplest form
24 August 2011 | by See all my reviews

A young woman is found stabbed in her house, and the only witness seems to be the autistic boy she looked after and who cannot speak. There are indications that the killer must have been very tall, and the victim had no defense wounds on her arms. DCI Janine Lewis and her team start investigating her past; it seems that she had an ex-lover that she was running away from.

Though not as good as "Up In Smoke", this episode of "Blue Murder" still has plenty of red herrings to divert you; the final solution is both very simple and makes perfect sense. A new addition to the team, a female detective played by Liz White, is very cute ("Do you think he'll go for me?", she asks at one point, about a suspect she's going to meet in speed-dating. "I'll say he will", is everyone's reaction, including mine). **1/2 out of 4.
