Connections Paranoid by DJ Forrest

TW & DW Connections:


 ITV drama series.

When a female GP is murdered in a rural playground in front of many witnesses, it brings a group of detectives from both UK and Europe to solve the mystery, aided by mysterious notes by the ‘Ghost Detective.’

Written and created by Bill Gallagher, it’s been a really interesting series that I only wish I’d seen right from the start, and not mid-way through. It is great to see Indira Varma in a role that I can stomach watching. (Not a fan of GoT, it scares the Weevil).
What I did notice was the array of Whoniverse actors in the series – did you?

We’ve done the research so you don’t have to, unless of course, you want to, that is.


Indira Varma played Nina Suresh for 8 episodes in 2016. Better known for her role as Suzie Costello in Torchwood (2006) episodes 'Everything Changes' and 'They Keep Killing Suzie' as well as her role as Ellaria Sand in Game of Thrones (2015 - 2017)
