Storyline

Mary Olivant turns out to have been the Van Buren's nanny at the time of Jacob's disappearance and a body unearthed near to where her corpse was found is identified as that of the little boy. Diederick Van Buren had been paying her thousands for years but she had recently seen Klara and told her the true fate of her brother. The so-called bodyguard was actually Diederick,allegedly working for MI6,and the pathologist who pronounced him dead three years earlier was Sabiston,working with Superintendant Mansfield in a cover-up on behalf of the embassy. Harry finds Jack,who has gone into hiding and who saw all that happened on the night of the shooting,for which reason he is protecting the killer. Written by don @ minifie-1

It's so good. One of the best.
28 October 2019 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

The Lyell team have to overcome the Red tape and diplomatic stumbling blocks to solve the many crimes.

In the previous episode we got a little bit of gore, but nothing like we got here, this was back to the old times, gore and bits galore. I wish they wouldn't be so graphic, there's no need, particularly when the writing is so good, the story should have done all the talking.

Credit to the writer, for delivering such an intriguing, multi layered mystery, intelligent drama at it's very best.

Super production values, it looked amazing, I particularly loved that Alfa Romeo Police car.

I would argue this is one of the best episodes of Silent Witness, high quality in every possible area. The ending is phenomenal. 10/10
