Award-winning crime writer Mark Billingham has returned to the world of podcasts this week, hosting a new series investigating the worlds of crime fiction and TV crime drama.

Produced by UKTV, this is the second series in which Billingham will interview leading names in print and on the small screen. The first episode went live yesterday with Rebus creator Ian Rankin talking about the 30th anniversary of his iconic detective. Find out how the author thinks his character has changed over the years, and about the detective’s return to television later in 2017.

Over the next two months, guests will include award-winning crime writers Lee Child, Belinda Bauer, Sarah Hilary, Bill Beverly, Karin Slaughter and Laura Lippman, as well as creator of The Wire David Simon and Sherlock’s Mark Gatiss.
