Some 20 years after Channel 4 made history by televising an autopsy, this far more intimate film follows Toni Crews, a 30-year-old mother who died in 2020 after contracting a rare tear-gland cancer.

The show's judge Mary Berry was replaced by Dame Prue Leith, who notoriously announced Faldo's win on Twitter before the final episode even aired.
