Law & Order: The spin off?
Bradley walsh hopes to reprise his role from the crime drama
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.’
