SEASON SYNOPSIS


Human remains yield vital facts in London University’s forensic pathology department, where Professor Leo Dalton (WILLIAM GAMINARA), Dr. Harry Cunningham (TOM WARD) and forensic anthropologist Nikki Alexander (EMILIA FOX) examine gruesome evidence in four new cases. Does Leo want justice – or revenge – for the deaths of his wife and child? Race to the scene of a drive-by shooting littered with dying gang members. You’ll wonder why kidnappers killed their victim before they delivered the ransom note, and what connects four apparently unrelated suicides.

 

SPECIAL FEATURES – 0/5


This 8-episode season is housed across two DVD-R discs in a standard clear case. No slip cover and no features are included.

 

VIDEO – 3.0/5, AUDIO – 2.75/5


The show is presented with a 16×9 enhanced 1.78 widescreen aspect ratio and looks decent with some minor artifacts while colors are on the muted side, probably in keeping with the darker tones of this series. The Dolby Digital 2.0 track is fine for a show of this caliber, but I did notice some static noise and hissing here and there though nothing out of the ordinary nor distracting.

OVERALL – 2.75/5


Overall, Silent Witness isn’t a favorite British crime show of mine but does feature some decent performances from its lead cast with some interesting enough cases. This DVD release is on the basic side however, the 8 episodes are spread across two DVD-R discs, so this is part of the BBC Archive series.
