If you die in unexplained circumstances, your family need to know answers. Solving the mystery of how people came to pass away for the sake of their loved ones is the job of the Coroner’s office, and the medical expertise and investigative processes he employs must reveal the cause of death.

After a critically acclaimed first series, Senior Coroner Dr James Adeley returns with his teams at Royal Preston and Royal Blackburn Hospitals as they try and investigate some of the 4000 unexplained and suspicious deaths in Lancashire every year. With extraordinary and moving access to the families, Lancashire Police, the mortuary and hospital staff, we go behind the scenes in Dr Adeley’s investigations as they establish the Cause of Death.
