Asian actress Manjinder Virk has been confirmed as a regular on ITV1’s hit show ‘Midsomer Murders’.
The news comes four years after one of the creators of the show said it ��wouldn�۪t work�۪ with ethnic minorities.
Virk will play pathologist Dr Kam Karimore, who will assist Barnaby and Nelson as they tackle intricate murder mysteries in the beautiful but deadly countryside of Midsomer.
Virk, originally from Coventry, has previously starred in hit TV shows like ‘Ordinary Lies’, ‘Call the Midwife’ and ‘The Arbor’.
Filming is already underway for the 18th series, made by Bentley Productions (part of All3media) and starring Neil Dudgeon as DCI John Barnaby and Gwilym Lee as DS Charlie Nelson, for transmission in 2016.
