Silent Witness series 23 has really nailed it with the range of guest stars.

Silent witness is back and better than ever, with stars like Gabrielle Glaister and more dropping in for a piece of the action.

Nigel McCrery’s beloved crime-drama series is easily one of the best things on telly. As soon as you hear that glorious theme tune, you know it’s time to race into the living room with a nice cuppa and get settled. 

It’s been entertaining audiences since way back in 1996, introducing and waving farewell to so many terrific characters over the years. 

The latest series – we’re on 23 – boasts the always-brilliant Emilia Fox and David Caves, as well as some exciting guest stars, including Zoë Harrison, Garry Robson, Stephen Walters and Ellie Dadd. 

The new batch of episodes is off to a gripping start, and it’s certain that Gabrielle Glaister being back on our screens plays a role in such success.
