Shakespeare & Hathaway: Private Investigators spoilers follow.

Shakespeare & Hathaway: Private Investigators returns for a new series today (February 14) – with a familiar face from Casualty as part of the guest cast.

The BBC One daytime show follows the adventures of PIs Luella Shakespeare and Frank Hathaway, played by former EastEnders star Jo Joyner and ex-Waterloo Road actor Mark Benton respectively.

In Monday's episode, Lu and Frank are asked to take on a tricky new case involving a tech company.

No-nonsense entrepreneur Bertie Tark is preparing for the launch of a highly classified new app, which has the potential to take the world by storm.

At this crucial time, Bertie is concerned that somebody within the company could be leaking secrets to their competitors.

With Bertie under pressure to protect his company Forosa, Lu and Frank are brought on board to see if they can find the culprit. However, when a suspicious death follows, it's sure to be a challenging time for the duo.

Former Casualty actor Charles Dale plays a key role in the episode as he takes on the part of the company's chief executive Jacob Tark, who is Bertie's father.
