Season 1

Following the ratings success of Peter Robinson's first novel Aftermath, Stephen Tompkinson is returning as DCI Banks in the television adaptation of a further three Inspector Banks novels: Playing with Fire, Friend of the Devil and Cold is the Grave.

Based on the bestselling novels by Peter Robinson the series features carefully worked stories jam-packed with twists and turns and intriguing and memorable characters.

The series stars Stephen Tompkinson as the tenacious and stubborn Chief Inspector Alan Banks. Actress Andrea Lowe is the feisty and headstrong Detective Sergeant Annie Cabbot.

Together they investigate compelling contemporary crimes set in the fictional town of Eastvale in the Yorkshire countryside - a striking and contrasting backdrop to chilling and thrilling murder stories.

In Playing with Fire two bodies are found after a fire on some narrow boats and Banks and DS Annie Cabbot find themselves on the trail of an arsonist who has killed two people.

In Friend of the Devil a young student is attacked in the middle of the city and in another part of Yorkshire a woman has her throat cut, but the two different murders have disturbing similarities.

Cold is the Grave is a case terrifyingly close to home as Banks is asked by his boss, Superintendant Gerry Rydell, to find his missing teenage daughter...
