dci Barn­aby to get dogged new side­kick

ew side­kicks come along like buses in ITV’S long-run­ning Mid­somer Mur­ders, which re­turns next year.

Not only is Nick Hen­drix join­ing the show as DS Jamie Win­ter fol­low­ing the de­par­ture of DS Char­lie Nelson (Gwilym Lee), two-year-old ter­rier cross Paddy is re­plac­ing 13-year-old Sykes. The Jack Rus­sell has now hung up his col­lar af­ter five years of star­ring with Neil Dud­geon’s DCI John Barn­aby.

‘Sykes can re­lax and en­joy his re­tire­ment, while some of us have got to keep slog­ging away,’ says Neil.

Paddy’s al­ready im­pressed the cast with his skills. ‘He has a marvel­lous party trick where, from a stand­ing start, he jumps up to eye level with you,’ re­veals Neil. ‘He’s good with the lit­tle girls who play [Barn­aby’s daugh­ter] Betty, too, so hope­fully there’ll be lots more fun to be had.’
