While it isn't clear why Jack left the show, creator Russell Lewis previously opened up about losing him and introducing Shirley Trewlove to the story. He explained: "I had originally introduced Trewlove... in a much bigger way... but that’s another story... I was very sorry to lose Jack – but you play the hand you’re dealt with.

"Jack’s departure meant we were a Sergeant down in CID – and it seemed to be a good opportunity for Strange to start his climb up the greasy pole. You lose Strange from uniform, and someone has to step in. Thus, Trewlove."

While we miss Jack on the show, the series is now heading towards season eight, which has unfortunately been paused due to the lockdown. Chatting to the Radio Times about the break in filming, Russell said: "The hiatus in production may throw a spanner in the works in terms of the rather happy timeline in which we've found ourselves across the past four series – with our story year being exactly 50 years distant from the year of broadcast – but we shall cross that frayed rope bridge over crocodile-infested waters when we reach it."
