Lethal White is the fourth installment in the Strike saga. We join Strike and Robin on a new case, investigating blackmail attempts made against an MP, but – spoiler alert – that soon turns into a murder investigation.” – Holliday Grainger (Robin Ellacott) from the BBC website.

You can find new BBC interviews with cast and crew here.

Robin is a junior partner in the agency and has grown in confidence, so much so that she’s now investigating a case single-handedly, which is brilliant to see. But I think Lethal White is less about Strike and Robin coming together emotionally, and more about Robin struggling in her marriage to Matthew. She kind of needs to sort that out before she can move on to anything else.” – Ruth Kenley-Letts (producer) from the BBC website.
