What is witness number 3 about?


The series revolves around Jodie, a single mother who runs a hair salon on a London estate and becomes embroiled in a criminal investigation after a quick peek out her window.

Looking out her window, Jodie sees two men walking down a street just before one kills the other.


It turns out the killer is the leader of a brutal local gang, and Jodie’s testimony could lock him up.

Jodie responds to a police call for information and learns her identity will remain anonymous.


As a key witness in a murder case, Jodie’s own life is in jeopardy when the violent gang target her and her family in an attempt to intimidate them into silence.
