Marc Warren speaks on major difference to ITV drama from original #VanDerValk

Last week, ITV aired the first instalment of a three-part reboot of 70s thriller drama Van Der Valk with Marc Warren taking over the reins from Barry Foster as police boss Piet Van der Valk. The remake kicked off with a triple abduction of a political activist and two bystanders and the second episode will deliver just as much edge-of-your-seat excitement. However, viewers have picked up on some differences from the original and actor Marc agrees.
