Storyline

Nikki and Jack assist DS Sally Kirchner in identifying teen-aged Alice Preston, who was murdered and her baby taken live from her womb. DNA identifies the father as married Simon Turner, who admits to a one night stand with Alice but claims he never saw her after giving her money for an abortion. Alice was a drug runner, sharing a flat with two other drug dealers, Mark Blakefield, who is also murdered, and Nuri Kavur, who turns out to be the informant for DI John Brooke of the drugs squad. Nuri believes his uncle, Turkish gangster Bekir Humadi, has slain the others after a consignment went missing and fears for his own life. Brooke arrests Humadi for the slayings, after finding evidence at the flat but Jack believes he is actually framing the Turk. Written by don @ minifie-1

Complicated and absorbing.
13 July 2014 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Having mourned the loss of Leo and Harry for some time now, I'm gradually coming to terms with Jack as Nikki's latest colleague/sparring partner.

This episode seethes with false starts, red herrings and other distractions. Just as we think we may have made sense of some of it.....we haven't. Still, that's "Silent Witness" and it's what we've come to expect.

As usual, although there is a reasonable amount of actual pathology involved, our dauntless pair still do a great deal of their own sleuthing and investigating. Do real pathologists have time for this sort of thing, I wonder? Do they trot around interviewing suspects and getting themselves into dangerous situations? No matter.....it all makes for a good story.

My one really big beef (and it's a BIG one) is with the ABC programmers here in Australia. The very moment the episode ended, next week's preview flashed on the screen, before I had a chance to turn it off, or look away. Great......there was a full screen shot which literally gave the whole plot away. This is not the first time, either, and it's INFURIATING!
