BBC's alternative Dreyfus case

    There was a strong Jewish angle to the opening episode of the new series of BBC1’s Silent Witness; about the only thing missing was a shot of the JC on the lounge table.

    The pathologists’ drama — a showcase for the props department with its grisly representations of scarred, scorched, mutilated and dismembered corpses — featured not one, but two Jewish families.

    In case you are still to catch it on iPlayer, I shall not divulge the plot. Only to say it involved an affluent Jewish businessman, donations to Israel, hate crime, home-grown jihadis and those stock dramatic figures, a pair of gun-slinging Mossad agents.

    And perhaps stretching credulity a tad too far, the central character (shown here) was a Francophone Premier League footballer called Isaac Dreyfus.
