Season 5

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.

Forensic pathologist Dr Sam Ryan (Amanda Burton) believes passionately in the dignity of the dead person, that the body before her was once a living human being.

She is determined to solve the mystery of how and why they died.

Never compromising in her pursuit of the truth, Sam investigates crimes and interviews witnesses herself if she is unhappy with the conclusions reached by the investigating officers.

Though this can result in friction, her tenacity, perceptiveness and needle-sharp brain get results and earn the respect of the police.
