Suicide, medical negligence, drowning, murder, bombing or road trauma - in fact any instance of tragic death, the STATE CORONER is called to investigate. Kate Ferrari, magistrate, heads the team of the Coroner’s Office as they probe through a tangle of evidence, autopsies, lies and cover-ups before reaching their final and often unexpected conclusions.
Ferrari is assisted by the paunchy street-wise Deputy coroner Clive Trimble, the young ambitious police liaison Det. Sgt. Dermot McLeod, and the ‘thirty something’ Medical Pathologist Julie Travers. STATE CORONER – a powerful and compelling television series combining the best elements of police, medical and courtroom drama.
