More News on the Forthcoming Inspector Banks TV Series

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.
