I was hoping too hard that they'd cast a minority actor or even a female, which would be a franchise first as they've never had a junior female detective.
Agreed, although, Nina Cassidy was a female junior detective, I don't remember how many episodes though.
I was thinking the same thing. I was hoping for someone like David Ajala or young Indian actor like a Dev Patel (they could pick an unknown and really do something creative!). In terms of a female DS, I would even take Michelle Ryan just to make it a clean break.
Maybe they are going the Spooks/Mi-5 route and casting only young handsome actors to replace the young handsome actors that leave the show.
Going to a much needed happy hour now. :-)
