Silk - S03E05


Martha has to put her personal feelings aside when she is asked to defend a close friend from her past. Is she strong enough to ask him the tough questions in order to do her job properly? The evidence against him in the case of a gangland execution is overwhelming. Fingerprints and CCTV put Martha's friend firmly at the scene of the crime, but is it all too convenient? With Clive at her side and CW prosecuting, the stakes are high for everyone. How close were Martha and Sean when they were young, and what are their feelings for each other now? Billy is shocked when a corrupt solicitor turned supergrass from Shoe Lane's past appears to ask for redemption. Meanwhile, battle lines are drawn in chambers as they gear up to an internal tribunal that polarises opinion and Martha begs Billy to tell the truth.

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

    [A] sure-footed legal drama. [2 Sep 2013]

    People Weekly Full Review
  • David Wiegand

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

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • 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.
