The SILENT WITNESS series from the BBC is based around the central character of Dr Sam Ryan (Amanda Burton), a top forensic pathologist who inevitably plays a central role in solving the many cases that come her way. The series is adapted from the novels of Nigel Mcrery.

Dr Ryan, originally a home office pathologist working in Cambridge (coincidentally where she graduated from - not just anybody is our Sam) to progress to become a high ranking professor and lecturer at London University in the most recent programmes. But she still finds time to solve those muders with a damn site more speed and efficientcy than the police officers with whom she works, bless her. Does this woman never sleep????

Joking aside though, this is usually an interesting and involving series. The crimes have plenty of twists and unusual aspects to them, with the indenty of the criminal normally well concealed until the final revelation (made by Sam, of course). This should appeal to most people with an interest in crime fiction or thrillers, and worht a try to anyone who has yet to try it.
