McDonald and Dodds is back for a second season on ITV, with a fresh mystery set to play out on our screens.
Des actor Jason Watkins and Cold Feet’s Tala Gouveia are back in the lead roles, teaming up for their latest murder investigation.
As the synopsis reads: ‘Set in picturesque Bath, the series pairs feisty DCI McDonald, who has recently transferred from London’s Met Police, with the unassuming DS Dodds, who has been happy in the background for most of his working life.
‘To McDonald’s surprise they form an unexpectedly effective crime solving partnership.’
The first episode of the second season follows a hot air balloon trip which ends in tragedy – and someone is to blame.
This is everything you need to know about the new episodes.
