Production Begins on Three New DCI Banks Crime Novel Adaptations

Playing with Fire by Peter Robinson
More information about the book

ITV has announced that production has begun on three made-for-television adaptations of Inspector Alan Banks mysteries by crime novelist Peter Robinson. Stephen Tompkinson and Andrea Lowe star as the DCI and his partner DS Annie Cabbott. The three books being adapted are Playing with Fire, Friend of the Devil, and Cold is the Grave. The latter book was the winner of the 2001 Ellis Award for Best Novel.

These new episodes were commissioned by the network after the success of the DCI Banks: Aftermath, an adaptation of a mystery of the same title that aired last October on ITV to strong ratings.

There are currently 19 books in the Inspector Banks series.
