Stephen Tompkinson and Andrea Lowe star as the tenacious and stubborn chief inspector Alan Banks and the feisty and headstrong detective sergeant Annie Cabbot in DCI Banks, a series of thrilling crime stories based on crime writer Peter Robinson’s novels.

What makes Banks different from other investigators? “He’s very much an ‘everyman’ type of character, which is why so many readers can identify with him,” Robinson writes in The Telegraph. “He’s no super sleuth or hard man, simply a flawed, passionate, occasionally naive and sometimes deeply insightful man.”

Follow DCI Banks and his team in two programs as they discover a serial killer and investigate a houseboat fire that turns out to be more than just a case of arson.
