“Silent Witness” Feature Interview With Emilia

In episode one, A Guilty Mind, Nikki struggles to deal with a case involving the death of a child in violent circumstances. Emilia explains: “The case affects Nikki deeply and personally and looks at the less tangible part of pathology, which is the mind. We are used to the team finding things out through the organs and the body, but of course when it comes to the mind it’s a lot harder to deal with. It’s very hard to deal with your own mind when it’s running away from you.

“Leo and Harry are deeply concerned for Nikki and it touches her at a stage in her life where she is a woman in her thirties, not attached to anyone and she doesn’t have children, so I think it brings all those issues to the surface.”

This is the first time we see Nikki struggling with a case, impacting on her mental health, so how did Emilia prepare for this storyline? She says: “I think part of it was instinctive anyway, because the death of this child is so brutal that I don’t see how if you were connected in any way to a case like this you couldn’t be affected.”
