Jodie Whittaker drama Trust Me will be returning for a second series – but with a new cast.

The BBC One drama starred the actress – who has landed the lead role in Doctor Who – as a fake doctor.

But she will be absent from the second series, which will also feature a new storyline.

BBC drama controller Piers Wenger said: “The first series of Trust Me broke new ground for medical drama and I’m delighted to be welcoming it back for a second run with a completely fresh cast and a shocking new story, which is set to become as big a talking point as the first.”

Screenwriter and NHS doctor Dan Sefton said: “This follow-up series will bring the same tension and twists of the original show to a brand new medical arena.”

The second series will be filmed in Scotland and revolve around a hospital department in Edinburgh once again.

The first instalment of the medical thriller, which aired in the summer, drew around six million viewers.
