PREVIEW: Annika, Alibi

Jamie Sives (Guilt, Frontier), Katie Leung (The Nest, Roadkill) and Ukweli Roach (Blindspot, Humans) join Nicola Walker (The Split, Unforgotten), in six-part series Annika.


The series also welcomes Kate Dickie (The Nest, The Cry) as DCI Diane Oban, and Silvie Furneaux (Limbo) as Annika Strandhed's daughter, Morgan. Filming is currently underway in Scotland.

Annika is based on the hugely successful Radio 4 drama and follows the sharp, witty and enigmatic DI Annika Strandhed (Walker), as she heads up a new specialist Marine Homicide Unit (MHU) with DS Michael McAndrews (Sives), DC Blair Ferguson (Leung) and DS Tyrone Clarke (Roach).


Throughout the series, Annika makes the audience her confidante by breaking the fourth wall and sharing her wry observations on the case and her life, as she manages her brilliant yet unconventional team, and her equally brilliant yet complex teenage daughter.


Annika begins Tuesday 17th August at 9pm on Alibi,
