Ten miles away another victim, profoundly deaf Hannah Smithson, is also shot, though her boyfriend's brother Chris, targeted with her, survives but is unable to help with any information. Inspector Jane De Freitas, on the rebound from an affair with colleague Robert Drake, calls in the pathology team but with the sniper at large and shooting indiscriminately Thomas is concerned for ex-wife Julia and their daughter Rosie, now living with former drug user Conrad Devenish. After a fifth victim, Martin Cross,a charity worker at a school is shot the killer rings Jane to tell her that he is unstoppable. Written by don @ minifie-1

Like Those Guys in Washington a Few Years Ago
1 May 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Snipers are such cowards, and this one is plying his trade. Silent Witness has set things up masterfully. Another stellar first episode. Five people are murdered in a seemingly random way. An uptight investigator is in charge. She is wound pretty tight and is under great pressure to solve this case. Of course, the public and her superiors expect her to manage this in a couple days. Also, the new leader of the pack is dealing with an ex-wife and her new boyfriend. He is incredibly jealous and protective of his daughter. Anyway, I look forward to seeing how this gets sorted out. A phone call from the psycho ends the first half.
