Law & Order: The spin off?

Bradley walsh hopes to reprise his role from the crime drama

TV Times - - News -

Bradley walsh has con­firmed that itv’s pop­u­lar crime drama Law & Order: UK won’t be re­turn­ing to our screens, de­spite some ini­tial ru­mours that the se­ries would be back af­ter a break.

‘we won’t do Law & Order any more, that is now gone,’ re­veals Bradley, speak­ing ex­clu­sively to TV Times News. ‘i will do more act­ing though, be­cause i ab­so­lutely love it. i’ve been asked to do a cou­ple of plays and i’ve also had con­ver­sa­tions with itv ex­ecs; i’d like to get back to it soon.’

the gritty se­ries, which looked at crime from the per­spec­tive of both the po­lice and the crim­i­nal jus­tice sys­tem, starred the likes of Har­riet wal­ter, paul ni­cholls, peter davison and Cor­rie’s Ge­or­gia tay­lor, and ran for eight se­ries from 2009 to 2014.

at the time, itv said: ‘there may well come a time when we re­visit the show, we’re rest­ing it at the mo­ment.’

But Bradley, who played de­tec­tive ron­nie Brooks, rules this out – un­less it’s in the form of a spin-off from the se­ries.

‘it’s just too dif­fi­cult to get all of those ac­tors to­gether now, they’re all off do­ing other things,’ says Bradley, who’s back on our screens next week with a sec­ond se­ries of itv quiz show Cash Trapped.

‘what we should do is make a show called Brooks, sim­ple as that. He could take over from Frost and Morse as a sin­gle man try­ing to fight crime.’
