Silent Witness is back to its usual double-bill this week, airing this evening (January 23) and tomorrow (January 24) on BBC One at 9pm after a schedule shake-up last week. This week will see the Lyell team taking on a very pertinent case after a mayor turns up dead. The story titled Hearts of Darkness is the penultimate case in the current series with Silent Witness season 26 wrapping up next week.

The BBC summary for Hearts of Darkness, Part one reads: “Levelling-up leaders and environmental activists clash in a small town trying to look to the future.

“With a sabotaged train and a dead mayor, the activists become suspects.”

While the blurb for the second instalment reads: “The Lyell team return to the crime scene as another victim is in peril.

“Family ties are tested to their limits as they reveal the dark secrets that led to the tunnel collapse, and Jack is put in a difficult position when a blast from the past comes to visit.”
