The second and final season of The Coroner begins on ABC tomorrow.
The series, produced as a daytime drama by the BBC, was axed earlier this month. It will be followed by the premiere of The Halcyon -also axed in March.
The return of the crime series set against a stunning coastal backdrop sees high-flying solicitor Jane Kennedy (Claire Goose) in the Devon town she left as a teenager, investigating sudden or unexplained deaths in her role as Coroner.
Working alongside local police detective DS Davey Higgins (Matt Bardock), her childhood sweetheart, and with a new and intriguing case to tackle in each episode – starting with the discovery of a body – Jane’s empathy and sharp instincts lead her to the secrets and complicated relationships behind each death.
The Coroner mixes mystery, crime fighting and jeopardy with the warm, light-hearted tone of Jane’s relationships with her colleagues, family and the local community.
In this new series, the chemistry between Jane and Davey remains as palpable as ever – will this old flame finally be reignited?
In this episode Jane’s fear of heights is put to the test when she and Davey investigate a skydiving accident and discover that someone has tampered with the parachute.
7:30pm Saturday on ABC.
