BARNSLEY'S own Katharine Kelly joins a star-studded cast for a crime drama with a difference.

She is part of the primary cast of Criminal, which starts on Netflix today, starring alongside David Tennant.

The ambitious new series comprises 12 different stories set across four different countries and filmed in four different languages.

The action takes place exclusively within the confines of a police interview suite. The UK, France, Germany and Spain have three episodes each in what is described by Netflix as 'a stripped-down cat and mouse drama'.

So far there are no details of the character to be played by Katharine – well known for her stint in Coronation Street and top dramas such as Cheat. Hayley Atwell and Lee Ingleby of the A Word are also among the cast.
