ITV has released a trailer for its brand new police drama, McDonald & Dodds.

A cross between Line Of Duty and Broadchurch, the new crime series - which is set to premiere next month - follows ambitious and work-driven DCI McDonald (Tala Gouveia) and shy, unassuming DS Dodds (Jason Watkins) as they attempt to get to the bottom of two cryptic events.

The pair seemingly have nothing in common. McDonald is at her career peak while Dodds has resigned his career to the shelf after 11 years out of service. But when he's thrust back into the hectic detective lifestyle, something about their unlikely partnership just works.

In the first episode of the show, McDonald and Dodds are set to tackle a murder that has taken place at the home of a millionaire entrepreneur (Robert Lindsay).

But with their very different methods of detective work, what will they uncover along the way?

Formerly named Invisible, the series will be made up of feature length crime mysteries - each two hours long - and it will showcase two stories in the first outing.

Set to jovial, fast-paced, classical music, the trailer teases the light-hearted and yet utterly gripping tone that the programme will take.

When McDonald finds out she's working with Dodds she looks less than impressed.

However, she soon learns his slightly more old fashioned and thorough approach could be just what they need.

ITV teases: "Set in Bath, each episode will take viewers into a new story world - from a greed-fuelled murder in the upper echelons of Bath society to an unexplained death in a private hospital for recovering addicts.

"With a classic crime story at its heart, McDonald & Dodds combines intriguing plots and the journey of two 'fish-out-of-water' detectives with warmth and humour."

Regular cast members also include Primeval star James Murray as Superintendent John Houseman, Motherland star Pearl Chanda as DC Laura Simpson and Poldark star as DC Darren Craig.

McDonald & Dodds airs on ITV next month.
