Season 8

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.

Forensic pathologist Professor Sam Ryan (Amanda Burton) has always delved into the past lives of the corpses she examines. But the discovery of her long-lost son confirms that it's time to confront her own past - and her future - and move on.

Harry (Tom Ward) and Leo (William Gaminara) are her obvious successors, but what will they make of new recruit Nikki Alexander (Emilia Fox)?

The upheaval of Sam's departure doesn't mean there are fewer cases landing on their desks - it's now up to them to preserve her ethos that every corpse deserves to have its story told.
