Watch Strike – Career of Evil trailer, then ask why does BBC keep air dates so secret?

Strike – Career of Evil, the third story from The Strike Series, is coming to BBC One this month and, yesterday, it got its first trailer.

The popular BBC series is, of course, based on J.K. Rowling’s best-selling crime novels written under the pseudonym Robert Galbraith, and will see the return of both Tom Burke and Holliday Grainger playing the parts of Cormoran Strike and Robin Ellacott.


The third story is expected to do as well  viewership-wise as the first two in the series, which garnered 7.8 million and 7.4 million viewers respectively.

According to the BBC, the storyline of the third story looks like this:

When a dismembered leg is sent to Strike’s office, it sends both Cormoran’s and Robin’s lives into disarray, forcing them to confront ghosts from their pasts. Their partnership reaches breaking point as Robin’s wedding approaches and they disagree about how to ensnare a man who abuses children.

The new trailer for Strike – Career of Evil shows Robin’s shock at opening the package with the dismembered leg, and then some of the ensuing calamity that occurs because of it.

Watch the Strike – Career of Evil trailer below. And tune in to BBC One to watch it on….who the hell knows?

Because the BBC still seems to think letting the public know when a series begins to air is a matter of national security.
