Silent Witness – Falling Angels Part One Synopsis
When a female vicar is then murdered after being followed on the Underground, the team face the difficult prospect of building a case against her distraught husband.
Nikki forms a bond with high-flying DI Luke Nelson (Richard Rankin), impressed by his intelligence and compassion, and Nelson asks her help to re-evaluate the details of his father’s murder when he was a child.
When a young roofer is stalked and brutally killed on his journey home, Nelson and the Lyell team identify a suspect on the tube cameras who links the murders, and a full scale manhunt is launched.
Silent Witness – Falling Angels Part Two Synopsis
The accidental verdict in the first death is called into question and the witnesses are brought in for interview. Amongst them is Lana Sutherland, a young hotel worker who has taken in a homeless man, Owen (Jack Roth). We know him as the suspect for the killings and recognise she may be in grave danger.
Nikki helps Nelson unearth the mystery of his father’s death, allowing him to confront and resolve the childhood memories that haunt him. He refocuses on the case and, with Jack and Nikki, discovers the missing key that links the victims.
