Death Unexplained

10:35pm Tuesday 14 February on BBC ONE

Every death is unique – and if it is unexplained, unexpected or the cause is unknown, the team at the Coroner’s Court must investigate it.

With unprecedented access to forensic pathologists, mortuary technicians, police and the Coroner herself, Death Unexplained follows Her Majesty’s Coroner Alison Thompson and her team as they examine in painstaking detail mysterious, violent and unnatural deaths in West London, one of the busiest jurisdictions in the country.

Behind each case is also a very human story – movingly told by families themselves and revealing more about the circumstances of loved ones’ lives and deaths.

In the second episode Alison’s team is called to investigate the case of a man who died at the scene of a suspicious fire. Plus there is an unusual road traffic fatality.

In court the Coroner must reach her verdict – who were the deceased and when, where and how did they die?
