Silk - S02 E03


Clive is in Oxford, prosecuting three students accused of sexually assaulting a waitress. Up against an intimidating defence counsel, Clive begins to waver, but a chance encounter with an old friend helps him discover a passion for prosecuting he did not know he had. When the case is in danger of collapsing, Clive is faced with one of the biggest decisions of his career. Meanwhile, Martha is defending Ricky Armitage, who trashed his local mini-mart and attacked the shopkeeper. His level of violence and lack of remorse is astounding, yet Martha tries to divert the self-destructive path that Ricky was fated to walk.

    Moffat and his very deep bench of talented performers create characters that defy expectation and grow in complexity with each episode.

    People Weekly Full Review
  • David Wiegand

    The performances for the most part fill in some credibility gaps in how the characters are written.

  • Tirdad Derakhshani

    Its few glaring missteps aside, it's a thoughtful, rewarding drama.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Dorothy Rabinowitz

    With the second and third episodes ever more predictable, and, not least, with Martha's character gone flat under the weight of a preening righteousness. If bad scriptwriting were a prosecutable offense, Ms. Peake might have a case here. Still, episode one of Silk is smartly written and highly entertaining--a treat, in short, and at two hours a sumptuous one.

  • Mike Hale

    Ms. Peake is excellent as Costello, but the character, and the show, feel so rigged and inauthentic that even her skilled work can’t make the case for our sticking around.
