“Strike: Lethal White” Available on DVD and Digital Download

If you enjoyed Strike: Lethal White, which aired at the end of the summer, then you’re in luck! The BBC adaptation of the fourth installment of the Cormoran Strike series is now available to purchase digitally and will be available on DVD in November.

Strike: Lethal White saw Cormoran Strike (Tom Burke) and Robin Ellacott (Holliday Grainger) return to the small screen to take on professional and personal challenges across the four-episode miniseries. Following two cases that share a connection, Strike is hired by Billy (Joseph Quinn), who arrives at Strike’s office asking for help to investigate a crime he thinks he witnessed as a child. This is all while Strike is also working for government minister Jasper Chiswell (Robert Glenister), who is being blackmailed by Billy’s brother. This leads Robin to go undercover in the House of Commons to see just how the cases might relate to each other.

The series was well received by both fans and television critics, particularly for Burke’s and Grainger’s performances as Strike and Robin. There is no word yet on any adaptations of future books in the Cormoran Strike series, but after the success of the first four adaptations, we’re sure it’s something the BBC will be considering!

The digital version of Strike: Lethal White is available to purchase now, while the DVD of the series will be released on November 23 and is currently available for preorder.

I was given a copy of Philosopher's Stone in 2001, and instantly, I was hooked. Since then, my passion for Potter has been equaled only by my passion for fair access to education (and watching motorsport). A spell I wish could exist in the Muggle world is the summoning charm because this Hufflepuff is not a "particularly good finder"!
