ITV's newest drama is about two detectives and the show takes place in Bath.

New drama McDonald and Dodds is set to brighten up our evenings, with the new ITV show adding a bit of spice to our evenings.

At the moment, there's only two, two-hour long episodes which are mini-movie type documentaries, and they're sure to keep you on your toes.

One episode has currently aired, with another airing this Sunday at 8pm, and you can catch up on the ITV player.

Here is the cast for the new show:

Described as shy and unassuming, Dodds has been happily working the desk life for most of his time on the force, that is until he’s forced to work with DCI McDonald and go out on the frontline, sorting out various mysteries and murders.

He’s played by award-winning actor Jason Watkins.
