Shooting has started on the first episodes of the new DCI Banks TV series. Starring Stephen Tompkinson, the series, with an initial pilot of two 60-minute episodes, is due to be premiered in Autumn 2010. For more about the series and the cast, here’s a press release with more details.
The first installment of this series is based on Peter’s Aftermath, and you might want to make sure you’ve read it before the series starts; or not. If you want to be surprised, and haven’t read the book, perhaps you’ll save the reading for after.
There seems to be a trend of new police shows in the UK. The Independent recently ran an article about several new shows, including the Banks series.
