"yet to be renewed" should be changed, as we see above under "Latest episode" s 27 started earlier this January

Oh how the mighty have fallen. SW used to be primarily an investigative drama, but seems badly to have lost its way (though the very last episodes of this most recent season gave some cause for hope of a return to what made the series so successful). The Leo, Harry, and Nicky threesome was the best; after those days it was increasingly the supporting cast that carried the show. But lately good writing and solid actors seem to have given way to mediocre diversity sermonizing. As such it seems to suggest that good writing and good acting standards do not apply to diverse or disabled characters, implying that they are somehow less capable. It begins to look more ticking of quota boxes than genuinely affirming the hard work entailed in acheiving truly meritorious work.

Me too! Was at a friend's place when she tuned into "Sniper's Nest" and from that moment onward I was hooked. Binged watched from 18 onwards, and then went back to the start and watched from there, despite finding Sam Ryan's risky behaviour so infuriating I'd throw cushions at the TV in annoyance. Have all the episodes now on CD, and am always thrilled to introduce new watchers to the series.

An episode of Silent Witness series 20 was filmed yesterday at Radnor Court, Copley Close, Hanwell - an Ealing Borough Council housing estate currently undergoing a flagship £100million regeneration programme. The day-long shoot was blessed with sunshine to the delight of the crew although some of the cast may have found it a bit too hot for comfort! Can't wait for series 20 to air - probably in January 2017 ???
