Season 9

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.

The departure of Professor Sam Ryan (Amanda Burton) in the last season means that the forensic pathology department is now headed by Leo and Harry. Firmly established new recruit Nikki Alexander has become an indispensable member of the department.

Together they must tackle a variety of mysterious and suspicious deaths: a spate of drive-by shootings, the result of a ongoing local turf war; a possible copycat sex killer preying on women in both London and Amsterdam; and an emotional return to Sheffield for Leo, to track down the crime boss who murdered his wife and child.
