Another viewer applauded the plot, writing: "Really nice direction on Witness Number 3. I like that we're seeing this from the witness's point of view instead of it focusing on the police/investigation aspect. We're seeing it from another perspective," while another praised lead actress Nina: "Incredibly watchable and have got to say that Nina Toussaint-White is quite brilliant."
