"Silent Witness" has been reliably excellent in recent years, but every so often this show transcends even its own high standards of storytelling, as shown by this episode. It's riveting from the very first scene; and about 45 minutes into the first part, the intellectual equivalent of a shrapnel bomb goes off, so quietly you hardly notice it (rewind!); and from then on, it's pure catnip for the mystery-plot connoisseur. Seriously, this episode carries all the moral weight and ambiguity of "Silence of the Lambs," and even (at a few points) matches that movie for horrendous suspense. Emilia Fox proves worthier than ever to serve as our template for The Wisest Woman in the World, and I am loving the addition of David Caves to the cast. The last time "Silent Witness" created such a masterpiece was last season with the episode "Death Has No Dominion," written by Ed Whitmore, who also has a co-writing credit for this episode, so a special shout-out to him. Bravo to all concerned!
