The start date for principal photography is on Production Intelligence, along with key HoD names including the line producer, producer, production designer, location manager and casting director.
The lengthy shoot will be delivered as 7 x 60 episodes, incorporating three of the books in the series of novels about the eponymous injured war veteran turned private investigator Strike and his assistant Robin as they investigate crimes in the capital's murky underbelly.
