McDonald’s and Dodds season 3 began earlier this month. With a fresh batch of investigative drama, the show has been serving us well enough. Two episodes have already been released now and they provide a very healthy dose of mystery and thrill. McDonald and Dodds Season 3 checks every box, be it drama or friendship, or suspense. The filming takes place in Bath. Every season is filmed in this English city itself. The main titular characters are Lauren McDonald as well as DS Dodds.
They are actually polar opposite from each other and do not resemble each other’s personalities at all. Well, this helps in the creative investigation process as both of them see the crime scene with crime scene a different approach. McDonald has been a London cop before and has seen a lot of action and adventure in her career. The same can not be said for Dodds as he has worked at a desk his entire life until now. He is pretty introverted and does not seem to make friends easily.
Filming on McDonald’s and Dodds started in quarter 4 of 2021. One episode from the previous installment is also set to join the list this time. Last year, due to some issues with the scheduling of the episodes, The War of Rose, an episode from the second season, was not able to release. Thus, it will release with the third season itself.
With the first episode of season 3, we were introduced to another set of drama and investigation processes. Belvedere saw a young Irishwoman dead. Her name was Elodie Docherty and her body was found in the most perfect situation where imagining someone dead is quite hard. The crime scene was at the Parade Gardens in the afternoon. Thus, our two detectives were appointed to get to the bottom of this mystery. They get leads and reach the outskirts of the city to a mansion.
