BBC forensics drama Silent Witness hit a major landmark on Tuesday night with its 200th episode, and cast-members Emilia Fox and Liz Carr have been sharing the love on social media alongside their adoring fanbase.
- Silent Witness star Emilia Fox thanks “loyal audience” as forensics drama celebrates its 200th episode
- Meet the cast of Silent Witness
- When is Silent Witness on TV?
The eighth episode of the 22nd series saw the team trying to solve a conflict between the Walsh family and a Northern Irish terror group who sought revenge upon them. It was a fittingly intense episode to ring in the bicentennial, which ended with a bomb explosion that momentarily had the audience convinced that a mother and her young children had died in the blast.
The show’s star Liz Carr took to Twitter to wish the series a “happy 200th show birthday”, along with a clip of her and her co-stars Emilia Fox, Sam Womack and co singing happy birthday.

Congratulations to the #SilentWitness team, celebrating 200 episodes of gripping forensic drama!
That’s a whole lot of cases cracked and one hell of a lot of autopsies.

Honestly love Silent Witness so much!! Every week they have tackled issues that may either be seen as taboo or aren’t spoken about enough. Also, mixing this with the superb acting I believe it’s one of the most important TV shows on the BBC.
