The Secret Barrister
You may not wish to think about it; but one day you or someone you love will almost certainly appear in a criminal courtroom. You might be a juror; a victim; a witness or perhaps through no fault of your own a defendant. Whatever your role; you did expect a fair trial. I am a barrister. I work in the criminal justice system; and every day I see how fairness is not guaranteed. Too often the system fails those it is meant to protect. The innocent are wronged and the guilty allowed to walk free. I want to share some stories from my daily life to show you how the system is broken; who broke it and why we should start caring before its too late.
Meet the forensic pathologist; Dr Richard Shepherd. A detective in his own right; he must solve the mystery of sudden and unexplained deaths. He has performed over 23;000 autopsies; including some of the most high-profile cases of recent times; the Hungerford Massacre; the Princess Diana inquiry; and 9/11. He has faced serial killers; natural disaster; 'perfect murders' and freak accidents. His evidence has put killers behind bars; freed the innocent; and turned open-and-shut cases on their heads. Yet all this has come at a huge personal cost. Unnatural Causes tells the story of not only the cases and bodies that have haunted him the most; but also how to live a life steeped in death.
