Meet the forensic pathologist; Dr Richard Shepherd. He solves the mysteries of unexplained or sudden death. 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.
