DCI Banks returns to BBC First next month for its fifth season.

The 6 part series features Stephen Tompkinson, Andrea Lowe, Caroline Catz, Samuel Anderson, Shaun Dingwall, Shaun Dooley, Maime McCoy, Jack Deam and Keith Barron.

This screened in the UK in August.

DCI Banks returns for its grittiest season yet, with an explosive serial crime story that weaves through all six episodes.

When the victim of a frenzied attack is found in woodland, the team wonder if it’s a random killing or related to the location – a shrine to a local girl who recently committed suicide there. But when Banks uncovers a link to local crime boss Steve Richards, he formulates a theory of his own.

Elsewhere, what starts out as a missing person’s case soon escalates into a kidnap and ransom. And Banks and the team have a painful job finding out how a recent tragedy occurred. While Chief Superintendent Anderson puts pressure on DI Helen Morton to close the case, Banks becomes increasingly certain this is all down to one man – crime boss Steve Richards.

Wednesdays at 8.30pm from October 26 on BBC First.
