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.
In South Devon, Chief Instructor Rafe Phelps is jumping at the skydiving school, The Drop Zone, when his parachutes fails and he dies on impact.
Rafe's business partner and ex girl-friend Lori Fletcher tells Jane and Davey that the parachutes must have been sabotaged. Meanwhile, one of the other skydivers Eddie Landman heads to The Black Dog to drown his sorrows and drunkenly reveals to Mick and Judith that he killed his best friend.
Jane finds out that he's not the only one who had a motive and the opportunity to kill. Rafe's distraught wife Jess begs Jane and Davey to give her some answers. The question on everyone's mind is whether someone killed Rafe - or did he do it to himself?
Demolition workers at a rundown cottage make a grim discovery when they uncover a baby's skeleton beneath the rubble. Hidden since the 1970s, Davey thinks there must be foul play involved, but Jane's maternal instincts tell her it's not that simple.
Tests show that the baby was premature, but there's a chance they'll get mitochondrial DNA to check against potential mothers.
All over Lighthaven news is breaking of the discovery and old friends Karen, Lee and Sarah try to hide their anxiety about what's been found.
When Jane and Davey make enquiries about the former children's home they lived in, the owner's son Phil reluctantly provides a photograph from the 70s, showing three teenage girls. Jane is determined to find out if one of them could be the mother in order to discover why the baby's remains were hidden in the first place.
When a distress flare sparks a call-out for the Angel Cove Lifeboat, the two female crew members, Erica and Chrissy end up overboard - and Erica drowns.
Jane is called in to investigate. When she finds a rip in Erica's lifejacket she has a sixth sense that something isn't right, which Davey dismisses, says that she is over-analysing.
Former Lifeboat volunteer and publican Mick, confides to Jane that not everyone in the crew was happy that Chrissy was promoted to skipper. Mick then narrowly escapes a vicious attack outside his pub, The Black Dog, which appears to be connected to his dodgy deals.
Jane's hunch pays off when forensics confirm that Erica's life jacket had indeed been tampered with, but since all of the crew had access they are all suspects. Mick is spooked when he hears someone trying to get into the pub in the middle of the night and wonders if his mind is playing tricks on him.
But when another volunteer, Bob Fountain, is shot dead by a spear and Chrissy is knocked off her motorbike it seems like the lifeboat crew are being picked off one by one: but by whom?
When Beth goes camping she finds a gruesome dead sheep that appears to have been ripped apart by a wild animal. Judith suggests that ‘The Beast of Lighthaven' - a panther released into the wild - must have killed it.
Jane and Beth think she's joking. That's until local journalist Ben Fairhead shows up asking questions, having found Beth's picture of the sheep online.
Davey is nearly lynched by an angry mob after locals accuse the police of not doing enough to protect the community from the big cat. Davey is dismissive of the threat, as is Ben's editor Samuel who wants more tangible evidence than Beth's photo.
Ben is determined to find some, but the next day his mauled body is found on the moors. Was he murdered by the beast? While Davey struggles to come up with an explanation, Jane remains unconvinced that a big cat is to blame and is determined to find out what happened.
The landlord of The Captain's Pipe, Tam Bryant is renovating the place after winning the West Country Pub of the Year - but following a public row with rival Mick is found dead, covered by a rockfall, in an isolated cove.
Jane and Davey are left wondering if the building work above his pub, being carried out by his ex-wife Roz and her new husband Brian could be to blame.
Jane and Davey quiz Tam's new wife Claire to find out what's really happening in this blended family: is it really all as amicable as it seems?
Meanwhile, they discover how Tam got to the cove, when investigators uncover a hidden smugglers tunnel. When Jane is forced to confess to Davey that she saw Mick sneak back into the house into the early hours, he's taken in for questioning. Judith tells Jane to find out what really happened and clear Mick's name otherwise she can find somewhere else to live...
An anonymous phone call from someone who claims to know the whereabouts of missing teenager Sophie Marsh's body prompts a forensic search of Dartmoor. Much to her mother's distress, no body is found.
Jane (Claire Goose) and Davey (Matt Bardock) are both called in to investigate the death of an inmate at a nearby prison.
When addict Charlie MacKendrick is found dead in his cell by another prisoner, Davey assumes it's a straightforward drug overdose. But when the new prison governor Maggie Fordham Bryce (Michelle Austin) fills Jane in on Charlie's background as a burglar with a possible stash of cash on the outside, Jane suspects something more.
Searching Charlie's cell for answers, Jane finds a letter addressed to her from Charlie's cellmate, the chilling Sydney Stone (Matthew Marsh) who is appealing his conviction for Sophie Marsh's murder.
Although Davey warns against meeting up with such a manipulative child killer, Jane does it anyway with Davey by her side. She wants to know if she can solve both cases and offer some peace to Sophie's mother - but by so doing is she unwittingly putting her own daughter in danger?
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…
