Investigating and detecting in the cemetery

Today the 19th April 2016 dawned bright and sunny, just the day to get down to  some investigating, but this time this will be just a bit different.

Instead of helping families who are searching for family plots or hidden meanings in the symbolism of the memorials-carvings , a new person has stepped forward to help with the detecting .

Step forward DCI Banks – yes one of his famous cases will involve Holbeck Cemetery  and the Nosters!!

DCI Banks is a very popular detective series broadcast on TV and today it is being filmed in Holbeck Cemetery. DCI Banks is a British crime series produced by Left Bank Pictures . The series is based on Peter Robinson’s inspector Alan Banks novels and stars Stephen Tompkinson as Detective chief Inspector Banks . In 2013 the series won in the drama  category at the Royal Television Society Yorkshire Programme Awards.

LEFT BANK PICTURES writes ‘The fourth series , (part of which is being filmed today), will feature the usual powerful personal stories for the lead characters,both in their private lives  and in their work environment; a deeper exploration of Banks’ relationship with his parents, further complications in Annie and Banks on/off romance and a personal crisis that threatens Helen’s career.’Annie is played by Andrea Lowe and Helen is played by Caroline Catz.

There will be three stories in this series:- ‘What Will Survive’; ‘Home’ and ‘Ghosts’ We can only guess which one will feature Holbeck cemetery .So keep your eyes peeled for the broadcasting dates  all you fans of DCI Banks , crime stories and especially Holbeck Cemetery
