Fresh, relevant and thought-provoking, D.I. Ray is a four-part drama written by Line of Duty actress Maya Sondhi and produced by Jed Mercurio’s HTM Television. Set in Birmingham, D.I. Ray introduces us to Leicester-born Rachita Ray, a police officer who takes on a case that forces her to confront a lifelong personal conflict between her British identity and her South Asian heritage. When D.I. Rachita Ray, a British Asian policewoman new to homicide, is assigned to investigate the suspected murder of a young Muslim man, she quickly realises the suspects can’t be guilty.

The evidence against the two brothers from a British Hindu family is flimsy at best. Her attempts at conveying this to her superiors and her colleagues fall on deaf ears. Hidden biases and a keenness to wrap the case up means no one is listening to her. That is until her probing leads the team to a much more sinister crime. D.I. Ray goes on a journey that sees her uncover a complex web of deceit within organised crime, whilst laying bare the wounds deep within herself that she’s spent a lifetime ignoring. Wounds that are born from a desperate desire to ‘fit in’, despite not looking the part.
