Silent Witness

ABC, 9.15pm

Now into its 21st season, this enduring English crime drama about a team of forensic pathologists has survived numerous changes of personnel by sticking to its briskly efficient brand of storytelling. In the first episode of the two-part Duty of Candour, there's a lot to keep them busy: two murders, revelations of extra-marital affairs, and a suicide, all within the first 20 minutes. Then comes a twist involving a computer hack and blackmail. As well, Dr Nikki (Emilia Fox) is dealing with post-traumatic stress and Jack Hodgson (David Caves) is intrigued by his new boss, DCI Naomi Silva (Kiza Deen). There's no shortage of activity.
