Stephen Tompkinson is to star in a new crime drama for ITV, it has been announced.

The Wild At Heart actor will play the lead role in two-part thriller DCI Banks: Aftermath.

The drama is based on Peter Robinson's best-selling detective novel and explores the events that follow after two police officers stumble upon a horrific scene at a house.

ITV's Sally Haynes told What's On TV that the show "is a classy, contemporary thriller".

Haynes went on to say that Tompkinson's DCI Banks character is "brooding and melancholic with more than his fair share of baggage".

The drama will go into production in Yorkshire at the end of April.
