A television drama about the life of a social worker and the dilemma of child protection could have had a very dull and unexciting soundtrack – but I didn’t want to do that.
‘Protection’ (from Silent Witness series 18) is about forensic pathologists Thomas Chamberlain, Nikki Alexander, Clarissa Mullery and forensics specialist Jack Hodgson who are slowly pulled into the world of Social Worker Louise Marsh (played by Claudie Maza).
