Filming begins on the sixth series of BBC One drama Strike: The Ink Black Heart

In this series, Strike and Robin will find themselves embroiled in a case that stretches them to their limit.



Strike: The Ink Black Heart is the sixth story of BBC One's hit crime drama based on J.K. Rowling’s best-selling crime novels written under the pseudonym Robert Galbraith.


The new four-part series will see Tom Burke and Holliday Grainger return as Cormoran Strike and Robin Ellacott. Also returning are Ruth Sheen as Strike’s office manager Pat alongside Jack Greenlees as Sam Barclay, Natasha O’Keeffe as Charlotte and Caitlin Innes Edwards as Ilsa.


The cast also includes David Westhead, Christian McKay, Emma Fielding, Tupele Dorgu and James Nelson-Joyce amongst others.


When frantic, dishevelled Edie Ledwell appears in the office begging to speak to her, private detective Robin Ellacott doesn't know quite what to make of the situation. The co-creator of a popular cartoon, The Ink Black Heart, Edie is being persecuted by a mysterious online figure who goes by the pseudonym of Anomie. Edie is desperate to uncover Anomie's true identity.


Robin decides that the agency can't help with this - and thinks nothing more of it until a few days later, when she reads the shocking news that Edie has been tasered and then murdered in Highgate Cemetery, the location of The Ink Black Heart.


Robin and her business partner Cormoran Strike become drawn into the quest to uncover Anomie's true identity. But with a complex web of online aliases, business interests and family conflicts to navigate, Strike and Robin find themselves embroiled in a case that stretches them to their limit.


Strike: The Ink Black Heart is adapted for the screen by writer Tom Edge and directed by Sue Tully, her third time working on Strike. Co-produced with HBO and Warner Bros. Discovery, Strike is story produced by Jenny van der Lande, produced by Alex Rendell and executive produced by J.K. Rowling, Neil Blair and Ruth Kenley-Letts alongside Nick Lambon for the BBC.


Strike: The Ink Black Heart will air on BBC One
