2 hours of silent witness. Followed about 50% of it. Pivotal discussions between lead cast members unintelligible. Couldn't follow it by the end. Is it me?

I’ve just finished watching and have literally no idea what it was about.

MargoChanning Tue 09-Jan-18 22:18:18

I watched the first half an hour of episode one and gave up. Not because it's confusing but because it's so damn dull!

OhFucko Tue 09-Jan-18 22:18:30

Completely baffled.

Duller than a dull day in dullsville.

When was it on and which channel? Missed it !

DH and i watched it and loved it. Didn't find it hard to follow at all. You do have to really pay attention though. We had both worked it all out before the end.

Not just you.

I gave up on the last series by episode 3 I think as it was just so boring and the storylines were too predictable bit thought I'd give it another go.

Episode one started out well but by the end of tonight's I was trying to figure out if the was a connection between the 2 cases that warranted the jumping from one to the other.

Did I miss something?! confused

blueskyinmarch Tue 09-Jan-18 22:25:46

The two cases were not connected.

BishBoshBashBop Tue 09-Jan-18 22:25:47

I didn't find it difficult at all, sorry.

YerAuntFanny Tue 09-Jan-18 22:33:39

So what was the point in having both cases in one plotline?

That's what I found weird.

Silent Witness used to be excellent then Harry and Leo left which seemed to be when the storylines started to go downhill.

Harry 💕

2 cases????

YerAuntFanny Tue 09-Jan-18 22:53:54

Calzone grin

At the start of episode we saw the family in the cottage being stalked which tied in with the bloke being found in the reservoir (atleast I think it was a reservoir!) which they were investigating.

Then somehow Nikki was following up leads on her missing friend and trying to pin it on the new bloke.

It was like they devoted the first 30 minutes of Ep1 to the family and finished it in the last 30 minutes of Ep2 filling the space with Sally's case hmm

ChardonnaysPrettySister Tue 09-Jan-18 22:58:19

I wonder if Nikki has any friends left by now.

They all seem to be disappearing or being murdered.

God, I thought it was just me! Total crap!

Thanks Aunt Fanny but I’m still none the wiser 🤪🤪

HowDoIGetOffTheBus Wed 10-Jan-18 00:23:38

I lost track and am still not sure who killed Sally and why.

llangennith Wed 10-Jan-18 00:26:29

Exactly what Howdoigetoffthebus saidhmm

octoberfarm Wed 10-Jan-18 00:45:45

I felt exactly the same way, though I'm sick and wasn't sure if my brain was just too addled to follow. The first case that we saw at the very beginning - how did that tie in with the rest of the episode?

Rubyroop Wed 10-Jan-18 00:46:31

Phew, I thought it was just me. Even DH struggled and he's normally good at keeping up with what's going on

LineysRunt Wed 10-Jan-18 00:50:16

Gave up after 15 minutes yesterday.

Bimbler Wed 10-Jan-18 00:56:07

The plug should have been pulled on this show at least a decade ago. Can't believe it's still staggering on.

mummaCL Wed 10-Jan-18 01:02:12

Used to love Silent Witness but I really couldn’t get into it yesterday. Will probably delete part 2

maddiemookins16mum Wed 10-Jan-18 07:33:12

I can't work out if their main jobs are doing PM's (etc) or working as unpaid police detectives.
Nikki lives in a lovely house/flat though although she wears some very odd outfits. That blouse last night was like one I wore in 1983.
