EastEnders hunk Davood Ghadami lands first TV role since Holby City axe – and he’s joined by another Walford legend | The Sun

DAVOOD Ghadami has landed his first TV role since Holby City was axed – and he'll be joined by another EastEnders legend.

The actor, 40, was left "gutted" in 2021 when it was announced Holby City was to be cancelled after 23 years on screen and just as he joined the cast.

But it won't be long until fans will be seeing much more Davood – who shot to fame as Kush Kazemi in EastEnders – as he's been confirmed as part of the cast of Death in Paradise spinoff, Beyond Paradise.

Also making an appearance is Annette Badland, who fans will know as fellow Walford resident Aunt Babe.

Phil Daniels – another ex-EastEnders – has also been announced for the series. Phil, 64, played Kevin Wicks in the BBC1 soap.

Other stars joining the spinoff include Chris Jenks, who most recently starred in drama Karen Pirie, and the late Hi-di-Hi actress Ruth Madoc.

Of course heading up the cast is Kris Marshall as DI Humphrey Goodman.

Humphrey is joined by his fiancée Martha Lloyd after their nail-biting will-they-won’t-they romance reached its emotional finale in Saint Marie in 2017

Viewers were delighted when Humphrey took control of his destiny and followed Martha back to London to declare his undying love for her.

Now the couple embark on a new adventure as they arrive in Shipton Abbott, Martha’s hometown near the beautiful Devonshire coast, having left London.

His arrival soon sees the Shipton Abbott squad witnessing a whole new approach to police work.

Each week the team will face a new crime with a unique puzzle at its heart.

The not-so-sleepy town of Shipton Abbott will be rocked by an entire family disappearing without a trace, a woman claiming she was attacked by a suspect from the seventeenth century, the robbery of a highly prized painting, a body bizarrely discovered in a crop circle and a serial arsonist with a seeming distaste for local businesses.

As Humphrey gets stuck into his new job, he and Martha must also navigate life’s ups and downs, as faces from the past, the decisions they make and challenges of setting up life in a new town put their relationship to the ultimate test.

Beyond Paradise starts on Friday, February 24 on BBC One and BBC iPlayer.
