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.
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.
Searching for the truth but never compromising, forensic pathologist Professor Sam Ryan (Amanda Burton) is prepared to investigate crimes and interview witnesses herself if she is unhappy with the conclusions reached by the police.
Aided by her dynamic colleagues, Professor Leo Dalton (William Gaminara) and junior pathologist Dr. Harry Cunningham (Tom Ward), she and her team are presented with four more tragic mysteries to solve.
Cases this season include a black athlete and his agent found dead and a serial killer newly released from prison and out for revenge on those who convicted him - one of his targets is Sam.
