The third season of McDonald & Dodds concludes with episode 4 called Clouds Across the Moon, and has a Poldark star amongst the cast.

The fourth and final episode sees DCI McDonald and DS Dodds investigate the death of a successful Bath businessman.

His body is found in a shallow grave in the shadow of Glastonbury Tor on the dawn of All Soul’s Day.

Their first suspect is local artist Hector Ingham, although McDonald can’t help but be suspicious of the man who found the body…

As increasingly cryptic clues come to light, one name keeps cropping up in paper trails, credit card statements and on the lips of witnesses – that of Dodds himself!

Here’s everything you need to know about the cast of the McDonald & Dodds episode Clouds Across the Moon.
