Storyline

As Nina lies in hospital Jack works out that Sarah could not have shot her whilst Sarah's supposedly dead husband Latif tells her that he did not kill Amir. Waite, however, sees him a a prime suspect and Amir's brother Kamal also agrees that the couple are murderers, before he too is killed. As a result Sarah aims to leave the Jihadis, who are planning an attack on a particular building and in thwarting it the police and pathologists must discover the link between Latif and Kamal and save another anti-fundamentalist opposed by Sarah.

weaker n weaker & insulting to boot
12 January 2016 | by muchechopsSee all my reviews

Silent Witness has lasted 19 series because it was something different: different in format, content, & style, if perhaps not in character.

of recent series it has become weaker & weaker since it stopped being about pathology & more about forensics: it's morphed itself into a pale imitation of CSI et al. & it's insulting its subject matter & audience in doing so.

more & more it sounds & looks as if it's written by white, middle-class men for a white middle-class audience: these last two episodes, Flight, about Jihadist Brits was SO ponderous, & clichéd, & insulting to our intelligence that this is how British Muslims think & behave, whether Jihadists or 'moderates'.

I thrilled at how original the BBC output was in the early 2000's, with Silent Witness, Spooks & Waking The Dead pushing the stereotypes of police procedural & serial drama, however now, with the demise of Waking & Spooks, & the transformation of Silent Witness, the very differences the Beeb were making are lost.

The pathologists in Silent Witness now follow the Police & do all their thinking for them, while the forensics uncover everything & piece everything together... & the seriousness of subject matter is diluted & polluted to entertain its mid-evening audience...

perhaps I am expecting too much of mainstream drama & that this is tackling national issues is as best a way as it possibly can, & that I'm yearning for a format & time-slot that doesn't yet exist, but this story Flight, while making excellent points about Islam, Muslims & radicalisation, did such a poor job of context, characterisation, & procedure, that I am really dissuaded from continuing to watch Silent Witness. which is a shame, as I'm enjoying the classics on DVD at the mo...
