British actor Holliday Grainger is to play Robin, opposite Tom Burke’s Strike, in a keenly anticipated new TV series for BBC One.

“I’m thrilled to be joining the ‘The Strike Series’,” says Holliday. “Especially with the role of Robin. Her grounded strength and intelligence are going to be a joy to explore. I can’t wait to dive straight into the wit and grit of Strike’s cannily well observed London.”

Brontë Film and Television are producing the Strike Series as three separate event dramas. The films began shooting last November across London and will appear on your screen later this year.
