hmv.com talks to Tom Burke about his role in Strike: The Cuckoo's Calling
When a new detective novel named The Cuckoo's Calling emerged in 2013, it seemed the crime genre had a new star in previously unknown author Robert Galbraith. However, in a twist worthy of the detective stories Galbraith authored, this exciting new writer turned out to be a pseudonym for none other than Harry Potter creator J.K. Rowling.
Even before Rowling unmasked herself as the book's true author, The Cuckoo's Calling, had become a bestseller and, given the runaway success of the films based on Rowling's more famous creation, it seemed ineveitable that the stories featuring private investigator Comoran Strike would find their way to the screen sooner or later.
Sure enough, this summer saw the first of the Strike series of books adapted for a three-part TV series aired on BBC One and starring Tom Burke in the role of Strike, alongside co-star Holliday Grainger.
With the first series arriving in stores on Monday (November 27), we sat down with Burke for a chat about his role in the show.
