The new series of the DCI Banks murder mysteries begins on 10th October 2012 on ITV. The series is split into two part dramas and based on the novels by Peter Robinson.
The first of the stories “Strange Affair” goes to the heart of the characters with DS Annie Cabbot feeling emotional about going on maternity leave and DCI Alan Banks troubled about a missed call from his younger brother. Both are about to receive a shock when DI Helen Morton shows up as Annie’s cover.
The search site of a murder near Harrogate begins a series of twists which entangle DCI Banks and his loyal team in their bid to get to the truth at the same time as clearing Alan of any involvement. Was DCI Banks’ brother as errant as the evidence suggests?
