Rob Brydon, Rupert Graves, Martin Kemp, Patsy Kensit and Cathy Tyson join the cast of ITV’s McDonald & Dodds, alongside leading actors Jason Watkins and Tala Gouveia.
Filming is underway on the second series of the contemporary detective drama following the success of the feature-length episodes which aired earlier this year on ITV.
Returning cast includes James Murray as Chief Superintendent Houseman, Jack Riddiford as DC Darren Craig with Lily Sacofsky joining as DC Milena Pachiorkowski.
Set in picturesque Bath, the series pairs feisty DCI McDonald, who has recently transferred from London’s Met Police, with the unassuming DS Dodds, who has been happy in the background for most of his working life. To McDonald’s surprise they form an unexpectedly effective crime solving partnership.
A hot air balloon trip ends in murder in the first investigation of the series. The suspects are a group of friends who achieved notoriety in the 1980s played by Rupert Graves, (Gordon), Martin Kemp (Mick), Patsy Kensit (Barbara) and Cathy Tyson (Jackie). Rob Brydon plays Roy from the Air Incident Investigation Agency who assists McDonalds & Dodds with their enquiries.
Series One is available on Britbox.
