TV DCI Banks (ITV 2010-2016, Stephen Tompkinson) Published 2 years ago on August 30, 2016 Crime drama series DCI Banks and his team investigate serious crime in Yorkshire. Banks is based on the character created by Peter Robinson in a popular series of novels. Each story is made up of two episodes and there are generally three or four stories per season. The first season very much followed the dynamic of the books with the focus on the working relationship between Banks and his sergeant Annie Cabot. Season two saw the introduction of DI Helen Morton who takes over from Annie Cabot (in real life Andrea Lowe who plays Cabot was on maternity leave, a storyline that was written into the series.) Keith Barron and Polly Hemingway also joined the cast as Bank’s parents Arthur and Ida. Chief Superintendent Ron McLaughlin also joined the cast in place of Chief Super Gerry Rydell who had been forced out on corruption charges at the end of season one. Season 3 saw the return of Cabot and DI Morton also stayed around. Season 5 saw Shaun Dingwall and Maimie McCoy join the cast. Dooley played criminal Steve Richard and McCoy his wife Tamsin with for the first time one story-line running across the whole season. The first three seasons are based on novels by Robinson but from season four onwards they are all original stories. production details UK / ITV – Left Bank Pictures / 32×50 minute episodes / Broadcast 27 September 2010 – 5 October 2016 Novels: Peter Robinson / Music: Sheridan Tongue / Executive Producers: Andy Harries, Francis Hopkinson / Producer: Stephen Smallwood cast Stephen Tompkinson as DCI Alan Banks Caroline Catz as D.I.
