ITV have revealed details on the Mammoth Screen drama for the network.

Robert Lindsay will join Jason Watkins and Tala Gouveia for the first episode of ITV’s new contemporary crime series, Invisible.

Set in Bath, the series is created and written by screenwriter, Robert Murphy, with each episode taking viewers into a new story world – from a greed-fueled murder in the upper echelons of Bath society to an unexplained death in a private hospital for recovering addicts.

With a classic crime story at its heart, Invisible mixes intriguing plots and the journey of two ‘fish-out-of-water’ detectives with warmth and humour.

The lead character is entrepreneur and multi-millionaire, Max Crockett (Lindsay), alongside Ellie Kendrick, Susannah Fielding and Rosalie Craig as his daughters Elenora, Tamara and Megan. Navin Chowdhry and Jack Ashton have also been cast as son-in-laws Pete and Jack, with Cassie Bradley as daughter-in-law Kasha.

Primeval star James Murray also joins the cast as Superintendent John Houseman, alongside Pearl Chanda as DC Laura Simpson and Jack Riddiford as DC Darren Craig. Natalie Mendoza and Roger Evans will also feature in the first episode.

Produced by Mammoth Screen, part of ITV Studios, the first outing of Invisible will feature two crime mysteries investigated by unlikely British duo – the wildly ambitious DCI McDonald (Tala Gouveia) and the shy, modest DS Dodds (Jason Watkins) – who make for a ‘rumbustious yet effective’ partnership after being thrown together.
