The streaming service has announced details of a brand new police procedural series that sounds like it has the potential to be as just as good as Jed Mercurio’s hit show.
Criminal is set to capitalise on one of the popularity of Line Of Duty’s interrogation scenes, setting each episode exclusively within the confines of a police interview suite.
And as with those iconic Line Of Duty scenes, the drama will focus on the intense mental conflict between detectives and the suspects they are investigating.
Fans will remember Rochenda as organised crime group member Lisa McQueen in the most recent series, while Lee played the husband of DCI Roz Huntley in series four.
The rest of the cast is also a who’s who in British acting with David Tennant (Doctor Who, Broadchurch) Katherine Kelly (Cheat, Mr Selfridge), Nicholas Pinnock (Marcella), Hayley Atwell (Avengers) and Mark Stanley (Game Of Thrones) among the stars, alongside Youssef Kerkour, and Clare-Hope Ashitey and Shubham Saraf.
The hugely ambitious series comprises 12 different stories set in four different countries (France, Spain, Germany and the UK), with each country getting three of their own episodes in their local language.
All 12 episodes will be available to stream on Netflix this autumn.
