Our wonderful Kate Layden is set to appear in the much anticipated BBC drama, The Barking Murders. The drama follows the crimes of the Grindr Serial Killer, Stephen Port. Sheridan Smith and Stephen Merchant have also been cast.

The convicted killer, Stephen Port, is responsible for murdering at least four men and for committing multiple rapes. Sheridan Smith plays the mother of one of Port’s victims, Anthony Walgate whilst Merchant plays the part of Stephen Port.

Kate’s previous work includes Emmerdale, The Full Monty and Seeing Red amongst many others. We’re looking forward to seeing her in the new series.
