I started watching the current series of Silent Witness, series 17, to fill the telly void which was feeling particularly empty after Sherlock left my Sunday evenings devoid of meaning. I like crime drama - Luther, Ripper Street, Sherlock, Silk to some extent - so I initially found Silent Witness perfectly watchable. I enjoyed being seduced by the glamour of forensics and Science and corrupt cops and planted evidence.
A few weeks in and it's become what I live for - I pretty much want to marry Jack Hodgson, and I feel like I'm really going to miss watching dead people on slabs getting cut open. The guest characters are stereotypical and used over and over again. The main characters are perpetually moody and never learn from mistakes. It's crap telly and I love it, even though I feel like the only person in the world who does.
