Forensic pathologists Professor Leo Dalton, Dr Harry Cunningham and Dr Nikki Alexander are back in one of the BBC’s most successful and longest-running crime dramas. This series kicks off with an RAF helicopter crashing into an asylum seekers’ detention centre. Harry suspects a possible RAF whitewash and finds himself up against the Ministry of Defence who are struggling to cope with the demands of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Subsequent stories include a trail of murders that leads to a hospital cover up, and the killing of a notorious female murderer that forces Nikki to revisit an emotive and controversial case from her past.
