“I’d never work again. It’s three different people – they’re all in the business and they’re all very powerful, so I’m never going to say – but I love them all dearly.”

Parish and her husband and fellow actor, James Murray, were discussing their careers with ITV News Meridian presenter Sangeeta Bhabra at an RTS Southern event in March.

The new cast members will guest feature as suspects in the first film of the Bath-based detective drama series, currently filming, alongside leads Jason Watkins and Tala Gouveia.

Gouveia and Watkins will reprise their roles as the unlikely pairing of the gutsy DCI McDonald and the humble DS Dodds.

James Murray also returns as Chief Superintendent Houseman, handing McDonald and Dodds three new murder mysteries to solve. Lily Sacofsky joins as DC Milena Pachiorkowski.
