A long time coming.......but worth it
on 17 September 2007
Why do the BBC keep delaying their release dates? This dvd was due out last year and has only just been released. So, was it worth that wait - you bet it was. Amanda Burton return as forensic pathologist Dr Sam Ryan. Series 2 of Silent Witness contains 4 stories each with two parts. Unlike the Dutch release which cobbled the 2 part stories together.
The first story Blood, Sweat And Tears concerns the death of a boxer and a series of deaths and accidents related to the gym where he trained.
The second story Cease Upon The Midnight is about the supicious death of a terminally ill man.
The next story Only The lonely sees Dr Ryan investigating the strangulation of a woman with her own tights. The m o seems similar to an old case.
The final story Friends Like These sees Dr Ryan at odds with her Police collegues over the investigation of an old woman beaten to death. The police think they have their man but Sam is not so sure.
The stories are well written and very enjoyable. There are some new characters like Detective Superintendent Peter Ross who is an ex lover of Dr Ryan's and once again the sparks fly. I only hope that the BBC start to release the rest of the series alot quicker. So come on BBC 2 Entertain get your scates on. We want more classic Silent Witness like this !
