Every body tells a story: who they were, how they lived, and most importantly, how they died. Their history is there to be discovered and the body is the key to unlocking the story.
Each season the forensic pathology drama Silent Witness features a new batch of crimes for the team of pathologists to crack.
The show follows the fortunes of the pathologists as they are called on by police to help identify murder victims that have been too badly burned or decomposed to use standard identification methods.
The team consists of Professor Leo Dalton (William Gaminara), a no-nonsense leader with years of experience in pathology; Dr. Harry Cunningham (Tom Ward), an incisive and logical scientist with a dry sense of humour; and Dr. Nikki Alexander (Emilia Fox), an idealistic expert in palaeontology who wears her heart on her sleeve.
Together, they combine their knowledge and abilities to solve complex crimes, using the latest forensic techniques in order to bring murderers and other violent criminals to justice.
Some cases in the season include the investigation into the deaths of two teenage girls hits a brick wall when the prime suspect is found dead after apparently committing suicide.
But Nikki believes the man was actually murdered. The body of a young boy is pulled from a river leading Leo to become obsessed with finding the killer.
And Nikki and Harry are first on the scene following a disaster involving a military helicopter, an accident that the Ministry of Defence seems very keen to cover up.
Sinister investigations and gruesome finds will keep you hooked to the very end and will leave you wanting more.
