Silent Witness stars promise 'plenty of gore' in new series

Richard Lintern and Emilia Fox promise gore and humour in the new series of BBC crime thriller Silent Witness, back for its 18th season.

''We are encouraged...to include that humour to balance out the darkness of the series,'' said Emilia Fox, who plays forensic pathologist Dr Nikki Alexander.

Richard Lintern, who plays Dr Thomas Chamberlain, said Tuesday's episode begins with a triple shooting.
