How Did Silent Witness Season 27 End?

The final episode of Silent Witness Season 27 showcased the team looking into the case of eight bodies being found in the museum of King’s Cross Station. Nikki Alexander (played by Emilia Fox) is looking into the serial killer.

We also see Jack Hodgson (David Caves) looking into the cases of missing people from a historical context. Later, the team figured out that an AI company named Kascade was filling the cops with rage through fake social media posts. They also blackmail anyone who tries to stop them. Kascade’s plan is out and Jack goes to the gravestone of Elinor.

What Is Silent Witness All About?

Is Silent Witness Season 28 Happening?

BBC has greenlit Silent Witness Season 28 so we should be happy about it. The Viewers are elated to know that it will return for another season. The renewal is attributed to the strong legacy the series carries and what it means for some of its fans.

We can expect a wedding between Jack and Nikki since they were engaged in the earlier season. Nikki has had horrible relationships in the past which is why she is always thinking something bad will happen to Jack.

We are guessing nothing bad should happen to him. But the makers might take the story in a morbid way. However, fans might not like it since Nikki and Jack are finally together after facing many challenges.
