Dramatic and powerful drama.
8 December 2019 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

Sam is on the hunt fo a deranged, sadistic and twisted killer, she sticks to her guns, and refuses to give in. Burton truly made an impact immediately, she needed no time to settle. I like that they gave her a back story, a troubled family, but the balance was right, it never felt like soap land. Silent Witness became more visibly graphic as the years went on, but the content of this one was certainly brutal. The ending is certainly gripping.

This first story is very rewarding to watch, no wonder the show is still going strongly. 9/10
