Next Episode of The Coroner is
A solicitor returns to the seaside town she left as a teenager to take up the post of coroner, becoming an advocate for the dead as she investigates sudden, violent or unexplained deaths.
A mystery man is found dead on a country lane next to a Porsche and Jane (Claire Goose) must find out who he is and what happened to him.
Davey (Matt Bardock) traces the car number plate to a local ‘boy done good', Jason Daniels, (Louis Tamone, pictured) - but his wife Anna (Daisy Beaumont) says that the body isn't his.
Clint (Oliver Gomm) is amused by the victim's distinctive private tattoo and the team begin to unravel the secrets of this man's adventurous sex life. When Davey tries out the sports car for size, he finds a mobile phone that leaves him and Jane trying to work out if Jason knows more about the victim than he's letting on - especially when they discover that he is Jason's office window cleaner, Fred.
Jason suggests that Fred must have stolen his car, but when the post-mortem shows Fred was the victim of a vicious attack they wonder if someone really wanted to hurt Fred - or if is this is a case of mistaken identity.
Jerry Foxby (Iain Batchelor), a playboy aristocrat who mysteriously vanished in the 90s, becomes of interest to Jane (Claire Goose).
Jerry disappeared after telling the police he'd killed a prostitute on his yacht - and now his younger brother, Oliver (Chris Larkin), would like his death to be certified so that he can claim the family title.
When Jane receives a tip-off from Helen Boyd, who claims to be the dead prostitute, it gets her attention. Taking the new lead to Davey he dismisses it as just another crackpot theory to add to the pile.
Jane won't let it go and looks for help elsewhere. She asks The Foxbys' long-serving housekeeper Peggy (Sandra Voe), to dish the dirt on the family. Despite being ever loyal, she gives Jane the feeling she knows more than she's letting on. When Helen is found dead and the evidence points back to The Foxbys, Davey starts taking Jane seriously - but is he too late to take his place in the history books as the one that caught Jerry Foxby?
A group of thieves dressed as pirates steal thousands of pounds from a security van under the cover of Ligthaven's Pirate Festival.
Despite Davey being in hot pursuit, the van is abandoned at the old fish market and the pirates vanish into the crowds.
That same morning, Jane and Clint (Oliver Gomm) are investigating a battered body found washed up on a crowded beach. The injuries to his face make him unrecognisable and the only clue to his identity is a distinctive skull tattoo. Both Jane and Davey are stuck with their cases but after having a bet to see who can solve their case first, Mick (Ivan Kaye) provides Jane's only lead; the tattoo shows the faceless man is on the darts team at his pub.
Meanwhile Davey is dealing with businessman Don Shapur, (Ramon Tikaram), the owner of the fish market.
John 'Blackbeard' Fraser (David Sterne) tells Jane that he doesn't know the whereabouts of his darts teammates Tony or Dick - and then Dick's wife Ruby identifies Jane's mystery man as her husband Dick.
When Tony turns out to be the ex-caretaker at the fish market and the only man on the darts team unaccounted for, it seems Davey and Jane are after the same man. Will they catch their missing pirate and find his stolen treasure?
Teenager Ellie Patterson (Macy Nyman) dies after her car skids out of control and hits a wall.
Jane and Davey realise that she's the niece of their school friend Cath Lowe (Kate Miles) and have to break the sad news. Later at the mortuary Davey reveals to Ellie's mother Debbie (Emma Handy) that Ellie was actually the passenger - someone else was driving.
Debbie accosts Ellie's boyfriend Nick (Stefan Healy) who denies seeing Ellie that night and says she must have been with someone else. At the police station Davey tells Jane that Ellie's car was wiped of prints - whoever was with her knew what they were doing.
Jane shows Davey Ellie's forensic post mortem: if she'd stayed in the car she might have survived, but she was moved, which caused her right lung to collapse. Whoever pulled her out of the car effectively killed her…
Looks like something went completely wrong!
