THE highly-anticipated show Strike: Lethal White has returned to screens after a two-year hiatus.

Strike originally broadcast in 2017 with adaptations of The Cuckoo’s Calling and The Silkworm. The show last aired in 2018 with Career of Evil.

Who is in the cast of Strike: Lethal White on BBC One?

Tom Burke stars as the titular character Cormoran Strike, but who joins him in the new series of Strike?

Tom Burke

Tom Burke, who looks unrecognisable outside of his role, returns as Cormoran Strike, a detective and ex-Royal Military Police investigator who lost part of his right leg in Afghanistan.

In the series, Cormoran is in his late thirties, the illegitimate son of a former rock star and a former Special Investigation Branch investigator.

He's now set up shop in Denmark Street and is running a small private detective agency.

Tom is best known for his role in War And Peace (2016) and long-running fantasy epic The Three Musketeers.

Holliday Grainger

Tom Burke is once again joined by partner-in-crime-solving Robin Ellacott (Holliday Grainger) for a case that takes them to the heart of parliament.

Holliday Grainger, 31, will be recognised as Lady Constance Chatterley in the BBC's adaptation of Lady Chatterley's Lover, and starred as 'Ugly Sister' Anastasia in the real-life version of Disney's Cinderella.

Joseph Quinn

Joseph Quinn plays Billy Knight, who is a homeless man who comes to Strike’s office begging for help about a terrible crime he witnessed as a child.

Quinn played Prince Paul in Catherine the Great, and Enjolras in the mini-series adaptation of Les Misérables.
