HOW AWESOME!  It’s funny, I randomly started watching Midsomer Murders recently.  Never heard of it nor John Nettles - the original Bergerac - until a couple weeks ago.  Crime Drama’s are my thing, so I am especially thrilled about this!!! And oh my gosh, Lord Toby is One of the writers!!!  biggrindancing

Love Bergerac, John Nettles was iconic (although I tend to associate him with Midsomer Murders).

A fantastic role, I'm absolutely thrilled. Love Damien in drama. About time he was given another meaty role!

(I must also admit to seeing the headline on Instagram and wondering if it was just someone's wishful thinking 😃).

Hi Whimsy and Ellie!! I KNOW!!!! THIS IS MEGA FABULOUS NEWS OF THE MAXIMUM FABULOUS! He's only going to be the new Bergerac! Damien has been announced as cast in 3 amazing TV series already this year, and then this news come along....!!! wow

I remember the original series, it was at the top end of detective dramas, with added scenery, and a compelling lead character. If I recall, Jim Bergerac was a troubled man grappling with issues, but a brilliant, instinctive detective. Can already imagine Damien in the role. Squee!
