The Endeavour star is currently trying his hand at directing on an episode of the long-running medical drama that is believed to be airing in May.

Speaking today, Evans said to RadioTimes.com: “I’m delighted to be working on Casualty. It’s a terrific cast and crew and I’m very grateful for the opportunity.”

Endeavour recently finished its fourth series on ITV, but will begin shooting a fifth run of episodes this spring. The next series of the Inspector Morse prequel will also be longer, with six cases to solve instead of the usual four.
