Wood will star alongside Jason Isaacs in the first of three new 90-minute stories, adapted from Kate Atkinson’s compelling novels.
Case Histories stars Isaacs as Jackson Brodie, a private investigator who attempts to unravel disparate case histories in modern-day Edinburgh.
Wood commented: “I am a huge fan of Kate Atkinson and couldn’t resist the chance to be involved in Case Histories.”
Isaacs added: “I can’t wait to put on the crumpled, witty, self-destructive, noble and naughty skin of Jackson Brodie again and dive into the unique flavour of Kate Atkinson’s worlds. Nobody connects the past with the present and the absurd with the heart-wrenching like she does and we all feel excited and lucky to bring another bunch of stories of damage and delight to the screen.”
Series 2 Episode 2 will also feature James Cosmo (Braveheart), Gary Lewis (Billy Elliot) and Maurice Roëves (The Damned United).
Currently filming in Edinburgh, the new series sees the return of regulars Amanda Abbington (Being Human), Millie Innes (Single Father) and Zawe Ashton (Misfits).
