Filming actually began in September 2019, and the drama was originally expected to air in late April 2020.

However, with the coronavirus pandemic, it pushed back the schedule.

The series was written by Vanity Fair’s Gwyneth Hughes, and follows the Banaz Mahmod’s tragic death.

Focusing on the police investigation, DCI Goode swore to bring the killers to justice, a pledge that “quickly became personally consuming.”

Keeley Hawes – who is also executive producing the series – said: “It is a privilege to be working on Honour…in a time when honour killings are still rife, it is critical to shine a light on such an important subject.

“Banaz Mahmod’s story, and DCI Goode’s subsequent investigation, is certainly one that needs to be told and I am proud to be a part of it.”

Elsewhere in the cast, Buket Komur is playing Banaz Mahmod, while Banaz’s lover Rahmat Sulemani is played by Moe Bar-El.

Mohamad Marid Hama is played by actor Waj Ali.

The two-parter is produced by Hera Pictures in association with Keeley’s new production company Buddy Club.

Gwyneth Hughes penned the scripts while Alliea Nazar is the producer and Richard Laxton is the director.
