Addressing the camera, Ralf - who plays DI Neville Parker in the drama - answered questions from viewers following Friday night's major cliffhanger

When asked by a fan to describe his journey on the show in one word, Ralf called the experience "incredible", "life-changing" and "unexpected". See what else he had to say in the video below…

The video comes just a week after the 43-year-old star announced that the show has been renewed for another season. 

While there's no doubt that fans of the show will be pleased about the drama's renewal, they may be slightly worried that Ralf may not return with it.

"Look, cards on the table, this happens every year and it doesn't mean anything. There's nothing to read into this either way," he explained. "All of those talks and negotiations - not even negotiations, we aren't at that stage yet - it's not like you get signed on like a footballer, where you get signed a five-year contract or a three-year contract or whatever."
