Season 13

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.

In this season, Leo comes under suspicion for fraud when he cannot produce his post mortem notes for a case he apparently worked on. But before he can prove his innocence, he is violently attacked.

While Leo lies in a coma, Nikki helps the police with the investigation of a murder – all evidence points to the dead man's wife, who is now Harry's lover.

Nikki and Harry end up on opposite sides of a high profile case involving the suspicious death of a wealthy banker in her Hampstead home. Her husband says she fell down the stairs, but the police think he beat her to death.

Despite promising otherwise, Nikki and Harry become increasingly competitive as every piece of evidence can be interpreted two ways.

And elsewhere Nikki returns to her childhood home of Cape Town when she is hired as a consultant forensic anthropologist by a private investigations firm to assist in the search for the remains of five young men who disappeared in the mid-eighties.

Will she be tempted to make her move to South Africa permanent?
