Flatmates Rhona and Leanne have their lives turned upside down after they witness a shocking gangland shooting. Forced into witness protection, the girls quickly discover that assuming a new identity isn’t simple.

Witless season 1 episodes list:
Rhona and Leanne are forced into hiding after witnessing a cold-blooded gangland shooting. Wannabe star actress Leanne is far more excited by the prospect than Rhona, who had been planning an escape of her own.
Leanne needs to get her bag back from Patrick's house. However, discovering a closely guarded fact concerning him leads her to become more deeply involved. Meanwhile, there's a seedy secret in the police force and the girls might not be as well protected as they imagine.
After arousing the suspicions of their scary neighbour Jackie, Rhona enlists Leanne's help to blend in on the estate. However, their attempts to win Jackie over backfire, forcing the girls into a series of increasingly uncomfortable lies. Meanwhile, Sergeant Forrest gets an unwanted houseguest.
Patrick contacts Leanne out of the blue, but Rhona is insistent that she cuts all ties with her former lover. Meanwhile, nosey neighbour Jackie overhears something that could lift the lid on the girls' double life. In Bristol, the police re-examine Mrs Hobbs' murder case and Sergeant Forrest comes under pressure to reveal the whereabouts of the witnesses.
The net appears to be closing in on Leanne and Rhona, and there are many questions unanswered. Will Forrest lead the gang to the girls, or might Appraisal crack under pressure from the police? And could the discovery of the murder weapon be the girls' ticket home?
