Derek Thompson in Blue Lights

Following on from his exit from CASUALTY this month, Derek Thompson will be appearing in the second series of BBC drama Blue Lights, which is filmed in his hometown of Belfast.

Derek will play retired policeman Robin Graham. The show will see his character’s past and conscience catch up with him when trainee solicitor Jen Robinson (Hannah McClean) investigates a decades old case that has dangerous implications for the present.

Derek said: “I loved the first series of Blue Lights and thought, as did the majority of my friends and colleagues, that it was the best new TV series of last year. I was thrilled and excited when I got the invitation to take part in series two. I was born in Belfast and was equally excited to travel over to work on the show and pleased to report, having read the scripts, that I’m sure the fans will love the second series every bit as much as the first. Greatly looking forward to it myself as I’m one of them.”
