Season 19 of Silent Witness begins on ABC in early April.
Dr Nikki Alexander (Emilia Fox), Dr Thomas Chamberlain (Richard Lintern) and Dr Jack Hodgson (David Caves) are back as the dedicated team of forensic pathologists.
This screened in the UK in January 2016.
This series sees Nikki (Fox) investigate a murder that’s a carbon copy of a case from her past, but who will believe her as she soon suspects that the killings are personal to her. Jack creates tension when he finds himself aligned with a police complaints investigator over the accidental shooting of a girl by armed police. And a seemingly random killing in the remote countryside leads Nikki and Jack into the dangerous underbelly of a criminal world.
In episode one, the apparent suicide of a DJ leads Nikki to question her judgement on a strikingly similar case from her past. The similarities between the cases reveal that a copycat killer is out there – someone who is forensically aware and possibly medically trained. As further comparisons appear between the murders and Nikki’s past, she soon suspects that the killings are personal.
Friday April 7 at 9.20pm on ABC.
