Silent Witness

The departure of Professor Sam Ryan means that the forensic pathology department is now headed by doctors Leo Dalton and Harry Cunningham. Together, they and new recruit Nikki Alexander tackle a variety of mysterious deaths: a spate of drive-by shootings; a possible copycat sex killer preying on women in both London and Amsterdam; and an emotional return to Sheffield for Leo.
