Return date confirmed for BBC One’s daytime drama ‘The Coroner’

Waking the Dead star Claire Goose is back for a new season of BBC One’s daytime drama The Coroner later this month.

The ten-part second season sees Coroner Jane Kennedy (Claire Goose) investigate sudden or unexplained deaths in the English costal community of Lighthaven, South Devon, working with her former flame Detective Sergeant Davey Higgins (Matt Bardock).

The Coroner returns at 2.15pm on Monday 21 November on BBC One.

The first episode of Season 2 is titled ‘The Drop Zone’.

In South Devon, Chief Instructor Rafe Phelps (David Corbett) is jumping at the skydiving school, The Drop Zone, when his parachutes fails and he dies on impact.

Rafe’s business partner and ex girl-friend Lori Fletcher (Tupele Dorgut) tells Jane and Davey that the parachutes must have been sabotaged. Meanwhile, one of the other skydivers Eddie Landman (Robin Laing) heads to The Black Dog to drown his sorrows and drunkenly reveals to Mick and Judith that he killed his best friend.

Jane finds out that he’s not the only one who had a motive and the opportunity to kill. Rafe’s distraught wife Jess (Simone McAullay) begs Jane and Davey to give her some answers. The question on everyone’s mind is whether someone killed Rafe – or did he do it to himself?

    As daytime offerings go The Coroner is actually quite good. I hope Beatie Edney, Ivan Kaye and Matt Bardock return as they were all terrific as supporting cast members.
