Storyline

Confectionery magnate John Briggs,head of an ailing empire and at odds with union leader Kenny Barber,is found dead of an apparent heart attack in a hotel bedroom. He was about to sell his company to millionaire Emmett Schwartzman. His sole heir is long estranged daughter Geraldine,to the chagrin of his brother Phillip,whom Geraldine appoints as company director. Young police pathologist Jack Hodgson claims Briggs was murdered,believing he had been with a prostitute,and is sufficiently persuasive that Leo recruits him to replace Harry,now working in New York. Briggs' right hand man Trenter pays off escort Deanna Collier,who is actually Geraldine's daughter and had just tracked Briggs down. Geraldine gives Deanna a charm bracelet but soon afterwards the girl is murdered. Written by don @ minifie-1

A Great Series Finale
14 February 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This episode, along with part two are the best I've ever seen, and I've seen them all from the very outset. Silent Witness now in it's sixteenth incarnation has been rightly maintained by the BBC due,in the main, not only to it's enduring popularity, but also the quality of the writing and the character continuity as the actors come and go over the years. The storyline in these two episodes is intriguing and plausible, and the screenplay sharp and uncomplicated. The acting consistently superb without being over dramatic and the location believable as war torn Afghanistan, although I'm sure it wasn't. Moreover, it was the direction that won me over, it was well paced and kept my interest piqued for the two hour plus duration. So, overall a great series finale that all involved can be very very proud of. Highly recommended.
