BBC drama Silent Witness draws to a close this evening (June 7) with the 25th anniversary celebrations wrapping on the show. The Lyell team will finally get to the bottom of this prolonged case, which has seen the crime series break from its usual format of two-part stories to tell a giant six-episode tale. Express.co.uk takes a look at the cast of the show.
Season 25 saw Amanda Burton reprising her role as former Lyell forensics specialist Sam Ryan and reaching out to her successor Dr Nikki Alexander (Emilia Fox) for her expertise.
Over the course of the series, both women have been keeping secrets with the truth expected to finally come to light this evening.
There have been questions about the character of Tom Faulkner (Matthew Gravelle) as well as whether Sam has something to hide from the Lyell.
Speaking about the future of the popular BBC drama, Silent Witness producer Nick Lambon said: “I don’t know whether you’ll still be able to tell a story over two hours if there’s a special computer that can solve the mystery in five minutes.
“But I can’t see a reason why the show itself wouldn’t keep going. After all, it’s still getting huge audiences.
“Whether I’ll still be doing the job in 25 years is another matter. Having said that, my diary is free in 2047! I haven’t taken a job for that year yet!”
Lambon said the show’s continued success was down to the “extraordinary flexibility” of the writers and producers to shape the show, adding each instalment was “very varied and very different”.
He explained: “A lot of crime shows feel very formulaic. But if you watch any two episodes of Silent Witness back-to-back, you can’t believe they’re from the same series. I think that’s very clever.”
