A new series of contemporary crime drama DCI Banks returns for a six‐part series starring Stephen Tompkinson, Andrea Lowe and Caroline Catz.
 
Produced by award‐winning indie Left Bank Pictures, the new series will comprise 6 x 60’ original episodes inspired by the books written by acclaimed novelist Peter Robinson. 
 
Stephen Tompkinson reprises his role as DCI Alan Banks with Andrea Lowe (Love Life, Monroe) playing DS Annie Cabbot and Caroline Catz (Doc Martin) as DI Helen Morton. Well renowned actors Keith Barron and Polly Hemingway also return as Banks’ parents, Arthur and Ida.
 
With a reputation for delivering credible and emotional crime stories that are firmly rooted in the Yorkshire setting, DCI Banks has become a firm favourite with ITV viewers. This fourth series will feature powerful personal stories for the lead characters, both in their private lives and in their work environment; a deeper exploration of Banks’ relationship with his parents, further complications in Annie and Banks’ on/off romance and a personal crisis that threatens Helen’s career.
