Silent Witness: A Special Relationship Part One (BBC-1 22 Jan 2018, with Ako Mitchell)

In the first part of A Special Relationship, diplomat Ryan Reed (Ako Mitchell) is watching the US ambassador on a late night current affairs show. But as he heads home he is seemingly targeted by a biker.

Lead by SIO DCI Ben Solomon (Elliot Levey), the Lyell team arrive at the scene to find Reed's body posed - sitting upright on a bench with his hand tucked inside his jacket. An argument quickly ensues between the Police and the US Embassy staff, who claim the murder falls under their jurisdiction.

The Lyell team fight against the bureaucracy of the FBI, aided only by the US Chief of Mission Matt Garcia (Michael Landes).

However when Matt goes missing, Nikki (Emilia Fox) is disturbed. Might Matt be the next target?
