Starring Tom Burke, who played the heavy-drinking, bad boy soldier in War and Peace and Jane Eyre’’s Holliday Grainger, Cormoran Strike is the new three-part television series based on J.K Rowling’’s latest novels. The story is a far cry from the author’’s usual universe of wizards and sorcery, as it sees her step into to a darker world of crime and investigations. 

Written under the pseudonym Robert Galbraith, J.K. Rowling will not be penning the screenplays, but is currently working on the series as an executive producer. The story follows the cases undertaken by private investigator Cormoran Strike, and his assistant Robin Ellacot. 

In a recent statement Rowling revealed that she was ‘‘delighted’’ with the casting and added; ““We’’ve now secured two superb actors in the lead roles and I think they will create something very special together.”” 

Filming in London is expected to begin this month, and the crime series will air on the BBC in 2017, beginning with an hour-long episode of The Cuckoo’’s Calling – the first of the three books.
