Bradley Walsh Official website has details of each and every episode currently filmed.
Walsh is best known for playing Danny Baldwin in the Granada/ITV TV soap opera Coronation Street. He started playing this role in 2004, and was written out of the serial in 2006 at his own request. In addition to his L&O role, he currently hosts the British version of game show The Chase.
To play the role of the ex-alcoholic DS, Walsh put on 30 pounds of weight, reasoning that Brooks had swapped an alcohol addiction for a sugar one.
In the current (Season 8) arrangement of the opening credits, he comes before the "Law" caption.
