Season 12

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.

Season 12 begins with Leo arrested for drink driving and finding himself doing community service on a rough London estate where gang violence among kids is common.

When Nikki investigates the murder of a young girl from the same estate, Leo finds himself in the midst of a turf war.

Elsewhere Harry mentors an eager medical student who seems more interested in the media frenzy over his latest case than pathology, and Nikki investigates an armed raid on a terrorist cell, facing increasing police hostility to her investigation as she begins to suspect the victims are innocent.
