McDonald And Dodds Season 3 Cast
Firstly, we have Jason Watkins returning as part of McDonald And Dodds Season 3 Cast playing the brilliant and shy Detective Sergeant Dodds. He’s been quietly and methodically working at his desk in Bath for years without anyone noticing, but now his supervisor wants to drive him into early retirement – so he’s been teamed with DCI Lauren McDonald and pushed out into frontline action, and that’s quite a life-changing experience.
Secondly, Tala Gouveia is also back, reprising her role as Detective Constable Inspector McDonald in McDonald And Dodds Season 3 Cast. A “wildly ambitious” Detective Chief Inspector was relocated from the “mean streets of South London” to Bath. She is young, bright, and frequently underappreciated and has been described as “a tough, driven, battering ram of a cop who cracks cases by pure force of will.”
Jason And Tala’s Previous Roles
You may remember Jason Watkins from his roles as Prime Minister Harold Wilson in Netflix’s “The Crown,” and he has also starred in the ITV serial murderer drama series Des. He’s worked opposite Renée Zellweger in Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason and he’s also played a role in “The Golden Compass”.
As for Tala Gouveia, she cut her teeth in EastEnders playing a character called Nurse Green. Then, she went to the Tracy Ullman Show, and then moved on to Plebs, and then to “Before We Go Old”. Joining them in the new regular cast, we have Claire Skinner, who plays the Chief Superintendent Ormond, a new character with little patience for any kind of nonsense. Claire Skinner has also starred in “Sense & Sensibility” and in “Vanity Fair”.
