Silent Witness season 27 continues on BBC One next week with two part episode Invisible

Silent Witness returns with regular programming this week with two part story Invisible. The series was scheduled to be released twice weekly, with pairs of episodes telling one self-contained story airing on consecutive nights, but last week’s BBC schedule was disrupted by the FA Cup, and the second episode of two part story Grievance Culture arrived on Monday 22, with no new episode on the following night.

This week’s return to form sees the latest two part story, Invisible, air on BBC One and BBC iPlayer. The regular cast returns for a new case as they learn of the heartbreaking fate of their latest victim.
