“THE Ravens are an elite crime fighting unit, formed to fight crime under the media spotlight. In front of the camera, they have to win back the trust of the South African public. Behind the camera, they have to win each other’s trust.”

This is the premise behind The Docket, an all new local drama that debuted on SABC 3 on August 22 at 9.30 pm, starring KwaDukuza’s very own Ashish Gangapersad.

Gangapersad plays detective Terry Jahib, performing alongside lead actress Hlubi Mboya as Captain Nsiki Motshe, Duncan Johnson as Colonel Marlon van Wyk, Seputla Sebogodi as Brigadier Funani Twala, and Brendon Engelbrecht as Detective Neil Hall, Gangapersad’s on-screen partner. According to Gangapersad, Terry Jahib is an iconic, driven, and successful millennial.

“A technological savant, he doesn’t have a separation between our real and digital worlds. Terry is highly social and engaged in current events. His disarming personality makes him both likable and easy to trust. His tech skills, ease with strangers and ability to pull together seemingly disparate pieces of information into a coherent whole, make him an invaluable member of the Ravens.

“Terry’s primary flaw is his personal definition of the relationship between ‘legality’ and the enforcing of a ‘moral right’.”

Discussing his character’s journey in the first season, Gangapersad says: “Terry sees himself as a mentor to Neil. He tries to expose Neil to more of a modern and millennial lifestyle, and bring him out of his shell. Terry will also be affected by a case to the point where he crosses the legal line — putting himself, and the rest of the Ravens, at risk.”

The Stanger Manor Secondary School alumnus is making strides in the entertainment industry, bringing recognition to his hometown in the process. Catch Gangapersad on the next episode of The Docket on SABC 3, Wednesday night at 9.30 am.
