Serielizados Fest premieres in Spain this claustrophobic British thriller from Channel 5 directed by Diarmuid Goggins (‘Kin’).

How far are you willing to go to do the right thing? Witness Nr. 3, starring Nina Toussaint-White and Sue Johnston, asks this difficult question.

Written by screenwriter Thomas Eccleshare, the series is directed by Diarmuid Goggins (Kin, Silent Witness, Bulletproof).

In this fast-paced thriller we follow Jodie (Toussaint-White), a single mother who runs a hair salon. Jodie leads a normal life, until one day everything changes when she becomes the main witness in a murder case. Jodie is the last person to witness a murderer and his victim before he is killed.

After answering a police interrogation, Jodie is informed that her identity will remain anonymous for her own safety. But it is too late. By the time she rethinks her cooperation with the police, Jodie will be subjected to a terrifying campaign of intimidation by a gang sent to silence her.

Threatening text messages, violent videos, photos of her son on his way to school… the level of coercion and terror the gang will exert on her day-to-day life will push Jodie into paranoia.

With wonderful creative direction and perspective, an excellent script, and a brutal central performance, Witness Nr 3 is a must-see for the paranoid thriller fans.
