Six Four cast: The full star-studded line up of gripping new crime drama with Vinette Robinson and one familiar face from an iconic 90s sitcom

A thrilling new crime series will be available to view on ITV1 today - accompanied by a star-studded cast of familiar faces. Six Four initially premiered on ITVX earlier this year, in March, but the mind-bending series will make its debut on the small screen at 9pm tonight, just in time for some thrilling viewing as the chilly nights draw in. Created by BAFTA Scotland Award-winning screenwriter, Gregory Burke, Six Four is inspired by the best-selling titular novel by Hideo Yokoyama, with the TV drama is set primarily in Glasgow. The plot tells a dark and compelling story of kidnap, corruption, betrayal and an unwavering search for the truth, when DC Chris O'Neill, whose daughter is missing, is approached by a journalist about a cold case involving another missing girl. The four-part series, which will be available to watch every Sunday over the next few weeks, is host to an all-star cast of renowned actors and actresses - but who are they and who do they play in the drama?

Glasgow Caledonian University (GCU) has teamed up with Taggart star and honorary graduate Dr Blythe Duff (main picture, far right) to issue the warrant for the show's unsung heroes ahead of three days of drop-in sessions next month.
