Brand new detective drama McDonald & Dodds starts on ITV this Spring. A series of feature length crime mysteries comprising of two intriguing stories in its first outing, it stars BAFTA winner Jason Watkins (The Crown, The Lost Honour of Christopher Jefferies, W1A) and Tala Gouveia (Cold Feet).

Set in Bath, the detective drama pairs the wildly ambitious DCI McDonald with the shy, modest DS Dodds. While McDonald has transferred from the mean streets of South London to leap up the career ladder, Dodds has happily languished on the shelf for most of his working life. McDonald is a tough, driven, battering ram of a cop who cracks cases through sheer force of will; Dodds – the tortoise to her hare – is quiet, unassuming and enigmatic. But thrust back into frontline action for the first time in a decade, he discovers a hidden talent for deciphering puzzles.

Two contemporary Britons, thrown together with seemingly with nothing in common, boss McDonald and loyal sidekick Dodds forge a rumbustious, entertaining and ultimately – give or take a few setbacks – effective partnership.

The Fall of The House of Crockett: When a homeless man is shot in the deserted mansion of one of Bath’s most prominent industrialists, the inventor Max Crockett, newly arrived Londoner DCI McDonald and long-serving DS Dodds rally together to try and discover the killer.

In the Crockett family, they find an outwardly perfect, close-knit group with three successful daughters in loving relationships, devoid of any obvious motive to murder, but it soon becomes apparent that each have their own secrets to hide.

Faced with evasive suspects and a seemingly inexplicable crime, they quickly learn that not all is as it seems in the House of Crockett.

Freedom : 50 Years Of Pride | Channel 4 2 July 2022

Freedom : 50 Years Of Pride | Channel 4 2
The inspiring and important story of five decades of LGBTQ+ activism, told by the people who were there. This year marks the 50th anniversary of UK Pride. In this feature-length documentary, made in collaboration with Oscar-nominated director Stephen Daldry, and playwright Joe Robertson and the BFI, Channel 4 looks back at the origins and development of a remarkable movement. With contributions from people with a close relationship to Pride from across the decades – including Olly Alexander, Bimini, Lady Phyll, Sir Ian McKellen, Holly Johnson, Peter Tatchell, Cat Burns, MNEK, Tom Robinson, and Lucia Blayke – it weaves interview testimony and archive material with a series of specially-shot performances at London’s Royal Vauxhall Tavern. By turn heart-warming, mischievous, funny, shocking, and moving, this film explores the battles fought and the shifts in attitudes that have characterised queer activism over the last half-century; and explores the ways in which these changes have been influenced by and reflected at Pride. It tells some remarkable personal stories of courage, love, support, anger and determination that have defined 50 years of UK Pride. Part protest, part party, part performance, Pride has been and remains a vital, political, celebratory part of the ongoing battle for LGBTQ+ human rights. Exec Prods: Stephen Daldry, Joe Robertson, Alexander Leith, Simon George, Danielle Peck; Dirs: Peter Sweasey, Kim Maddever, Grace Chapman; Prod Co: BBC Studios
