Tom Durant Pritchard joins UKTV crime drama Miss Scarlet


Tom Durant Pritchard joins UKTV crime drama Miss Scarlet

Tom Durant Pritchard (This Is Going To Hurt, The Crown) has joined the cast for the fifth series of hit crime drama Miss Scarlet.

Kate Phillips (Peaky Blinders, The Crown) returns as fan favourite Miss Eliza Scarlet. Filming is currently underway in Belgrade, Serbia and is set to return to Alibi in 2025.

Following the departure of Stuart Martin, who played William “The Duke” Wellington in the previous four series, Tom steps into the role of Alexander Blake, a handsome former soldier and respected detective inspector who joins the force at Scotland Yard to replace the Duke who has gone to America. Shortly after he starts his new job, he meets private detective Miss Eliza Scarlet.

He’s not particularly shocked by a woman working as a private eye, so Eliza takes this to mean she’ll be given more cases. But their relationship gets off to a rocky start since Blake has decided not to allow private detectives to aid in his investigations. As Blake and Miss Scarlet cross paths at various crime scenes across London, they can’t help but develop mutual respect for one another, and perhaps even an attraction.

Tom Durant Pritchard:

I am thrilled to be joining the team and to become part of the Scarlet family. Working with Kate has been a dream and she’s been so welcoming.

In addition to Durant Pritchard and Phillips, series regulars Evan McCabe as Detective Fitzroy, Cathy Belton as Ivy, Felix Scott as Patrick Nash, Paul Bazely as Clarence, Simon Ludders as Mr. Potts, and Tim Chipping as Detective Phelps have all returned for series five.
