The Capture had us all talking in late 2019 with its central mystery being whether damning CCTV evidence used in court had been tampered with or not.

A second series is in the works, and the BBC has announced cast members that may seem familiar to fans of excellent TV dramas.

First up, we've got Paapa Essiedu, who was nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award for his role in I May Destroy You. He'll be starring opposite Holliday Grainger as the joint lead of the series.

His character hasn't been publicly named, but we know that he is an MP who has ambitions to go all the way to the top.

"I'm so excited to be coming on board with The Capture," Essiedu said. "Ben (Chanan, creator and writer) has written one of the freshest and most prescient scripts of recent times and I can't wait to see what this incredible cast and crew can do with it."

Game of Thrones and Luther actress Indira Varma, and Unforgotten and Dead Set actor Andy Nyman, have also been cast for series 2, although we don't know what their roles are at this moment in time.

Ron Perlman, Nigel Lindsay, Ginny Holder, Ben Miles, Lia Williams and Cavan Clerkin are all reprising their roles from series 1.

Filming for The Capture is taking place "imminently", according to the BBC, with further details about it hopefully not too far off.
