Happened upon this show and spent 2 days streaming it to get caught up. I'm obsessed! Love this show and the detective team. Cant wait for Season 5 but will miss Cassie so much. I'm interested to see how the show will proceed without her. I'm sure Sunny will do great but it definitely wont be the same!

Maybe they'll bring back Cassie as a ghost (like she was in 'River') guiding Sunny through the next investigation.
0 2 Alan Curtis  October 31, 2021
Absolutely amazing series 1-4. Nicola Walker will be a hard act to follow. But ITV have got a fantastic combination of actors from the previous series,so the new series five will be sure to be a resounding success. Thank you ITV for making television watchable again.

I can't believe Nicola Walker won't be in this amazing show! She is fabulous! i will watch anything with her in it and I will miss her terribly! I hoe whomever replaces her will live up to what she has brought to this show. (But I doubt it!)
