How do YOU picture DC Ben Cooper or DS Diane Fry? Who is your idea of an actor to play one of the roles on screen? Here are some suggestions sent in by readers. Of course, in practice a lot of these might be disqualified on the grounds of age, or for being too American - or by the fact that they're not so much actors as, well... Iron Maiden guitarists! We don't really mind. Send us your own suggestions and we'll add their pictures to the gallery. Or just let us know what you think by emailing: comments@stephen-booth.com
