New crime drama by Val McDermid, starring Helen Baxendale.

By Val McDermid.

DCI Marion Bettany (Helen Baxendale) and DS John Hodgson, a new detective team created for Radio 4 by award-winning author Val McDermid, investigate a murder in the sleepy Northumbrian village of Shilwick.

They love their work, they enjoy each other's company and like nothing better than investigating a new crime.

The only thing that makes life difficult is dealing with the public.

Take the residents of the former mining community of Shilwick, for example.

Val McDermid is a multi-award winning crime writer, and creator of TV's Wire in the Blood, which stars Robson Green.

Village SOS is a fictional version of the BBC One series of the same name.
