About The Show

Crime investigations in a picture postcard location are at the heart of this appealing series as a highflying city solicitor returns to live and work in the small town she escaped as a teenager.

Jane Kennedy’s role as coroner for this beautiful seaside region is to seek justice for the dead. She finds herself working alongside old flame Davey – now the local detective sergeant – to investigate the sudden or unexplained deaths of residents and tourists alike.

The Coroner features a new and intriguing case in each episode, starting with the discovery of a body. Running alongside each mystery is the warm-hearted ebb and flow of Jane’s relationships with colleagues, family and the local community.
