mortem Podcast

Mortician Carla Valentine takes you from the mortuary to the scene of a crime to find out how a body got to her slab.

A curious mortician. Determined forensic scientists. And one suspicious death.

Welcome to Carla Valentine’s mortuary. A chilled, white, windowless room, where you cross the threshold into the world of the dead. From the first cut, to the final stitch, Carla examines how each body got to her slab. But it’s forensic science that joins the dots, as we venture to the scene of the crime and join the scientists on the frontline.

Each case, told over three episodes, tells the story of one body, through the sciences you may have never heard in detail before.

The victim is fictional. But the science is real. Based on true crime investigations.

A Whistledown production for BBC Sounds.
