Abrasive inspector Pamela Rankin arrests Nikki for Belinda's murder whilst her colleagues gather evidence to prove Nikki's innocence and, released on bail, she questions Scott, who denies any involvement. A visit to the support group attended by the two supposed suicides yields the identity of a mystery man, who comes after Nikki but is shot by police marksmen. This still leaves the question as to who is murdering people connected with Hamilton's trial, pointing to one of his family or friends. Written by don @ minifie-1

The body of Professor Roach is discovered, DI Pamela Rankin and her team are called in, she jumps to the only conclusion possible, that Nikki has killed her former lecturer. Nikki's own torch is confirmed as the murder weapon and she's taken in. Rankin is determined to prove Nikki's guilt, but Jack, Thomas and Clarissa fight for her escape. Who is going to so many lengths to make Nikki look guilty?

In the first episode I felt Liza Tarbuck was a surprise casting choice, but in this second episode I thought she was excellent, she really got under Nikki's skin.

Emilia Fox was fantastic once again, I always love a Nikki story, her character has developed so well over the years. She is now Silent Witness Royalty.

I particularly enjoyed the performances of Dean Andrews and Geraldine Somerville, and the link between the two stories unravelled well. It seemed like a waste of Dean Lennox Kelly, he's a corker and didn't get enough screen time.

It all came together, great story, no wonder it landed over 7 million viewers, that ending was so good! 9/10
