Summary With unprecedented access to one of the busiest Coroner's jurisdictions in the country, this three-part observational documentary series follows Her Majesty's Coroner for West London, Alison Thompson and her team, as they investigate the 4,000 or so unexplained deaths that end up on their slate - literally - every year.Every unexplained death is unique. Whether it's a freakish industrial accident involving a vat of boiling soup; deadly poisonings using obscure Asian herbs; tourists falling from balconies in the Costa del Sol; or even cosmetic surgery with deadly consequences - the West London Coroner and her officers have seen it all.By combining cutting-edge forensic science with good old-fashioned detective work, it's their job to find the clues to solve the puzzle of where, when and how each death happened. And in delving deeper into each unexplained death, they often find out far more than has previously been known about people's lives.In the first episode, Alison's team investigates a rare case of suspected poisoning, a possible prescription drugs overdose, and the case of a man whose body lay undiscovered for months.
