Trivia / Silent Witness

  • McLeaned: Leo Dalton is Killed Off for Real due to William Gaminara wanting to move onto to other things.
  • Too Soon: "And Then I Fell In Love", a story planned for Season 15, was delayed as it was too close to a very-high-profile case undergoing trial involving a child sex ring in Rochdale, to the point of potentially prejudicing it. The case has now concluded, but the story had a long delay and was finally rescheduled to air several months after originally planned.
    • This was avoided for the story "Sniper's Nest", which features a sniper on a killing spree, and aired only hours after the Charlie Hebdo shooting in Paris, prompting some criticism as a result.
