After what seems like an eternity, Jason Isaacs (Harry Potter) is returning to BBC1 in a new three part series of Case Histories. The Edinburgh based crime drama is based on books by the novelist Kate Atkinson. Isaacs resumes his role as private eye Jackson Brodie while his co-stars in the new series include TV funny woman Victoria Wood.
As season two begins, Brodie is brooding about a botched investigation into a kidnap case. However, he has very little time to reflect on his own shortcomings before a new case involving kidnap, police corruption and child abuse lands on his doorstep. The precise broadcast details have yet to be revealed but Case Histories will air on BBC1 during the week of May 18 – 24.
