NEWS: Silent Witness announces new team member.

by | Nov 20, 2020 | All, TV News

 Jason Wong (The Gentleman, Chimerica, Strangers) has joined the cast of BBC One’s hugely popular primetime drama Silent Witness, which is currently filming its 24th series.

The explosive conclusion of Series 23, in February 2020, shocked audiences with the departure of two of the series’ regular characters: Clarissa Mullery (Liz Carr) and Dr Thomas Chamberlain (Richard Lintern).

Series 24 finds Dr Nikki Alexander (Emilia Fox) and Jack Hodgson (David Caves) looking forward to the future. However buried secrets and memories soon surface, and, when ghosts from the past emerge, the two are forced increasingly close to one another. 

The arrival of Adam Yuen (Jason Wong) disturbs this new dynamic. A confident, bright and keen pathologist who’s constantly striving to be the best, he immediately rubs Nikki and Jack up the wrong way. Will Adam find his own way to fit in and last at the Lyell?

 On joining the show, Jason Wong said: “I am so excited to be joining Silent Witness, like everyone else I have been a huge fan of the show for years and to be becoming part of the family feels like a huge privilege.  I can’t wait for audiences to see all we have in store for them in this new series.”

On Series 24, Emilia Fox, said: “It’s fantastic to be back filming Series 24 of Silent Witness with five terrific new storylines, our wonderful crew, great new casts for each story and to be welcoming the very lovely and talented Jason Wong to the Lyell team, who is an absolute joy to work with!”

Lawrence Till, Executive Producer, BBC Studios Production, said: “Silent Witness has always attracted talented writers, directors and actors and we have prepared five exciting and distinctive stories told across ten episodes. We are delighted that filming is underway.”

Jo McClellan, Executive Producer, BBC One, said: “We are so delighted to be filming Silent Witness and to welcome Jason. Series 24 is going to be brilliant and, although fans will have to wait a little while longer than usual to see it, I promise them it is worth it!”

                         Silent Witness returns in 2021 on BBC One.
