There’s a brand new detective drama showing up on our screens this evening, with Professor T looking set to become our most recent crime obsession.
The show originally aired exclusives on BritBox in June, yet the six-part series will presently air on ITV once every week beginning this evening (July 18).
It seems as though an optimal Sunday night watch, based around an idiosyncratic main character.
Filming on the show occurred in the middle of lockdowns the previous summer, with production moving from Belgium to Cambridge.
Be that as it may, who is in the TV series and what’s going on with it? Here’s everything you need to know.
Who stars in Professor T and what’s going on with it?
Ben Miller is set to star as the whimsical lead character, Professor Jasper Tempest.
The crime analyst with OCD works at Cambridge University and finds himself becoming a counsel to the police in strange conditions.
The professor views himself as a ‘studier’ of criminals, instead of somebody plan on bringing them down.
Episode one sees the person associated with a police investigation following an attack on Diana Tyson (Elizabeth Kate Back) on the university campus.
Talking about the series, the actor said: ‘Professor T has it all: intriguing murders, dreaming spires, and a cast of unforgettable characters, each with their own fascinating secrets.
‘You don’t have to be a professor of criminal psychology to know the ITV audience will love it.’
It’s the first time Ben has been on our screens since his startling re-visitation of Death in Paradise.
He is joined by Emma Naom, Barney White and Frances de la Tour, who is referred to for her role as Miss Ruth Jones in 70s show Rising Damp and the Harry Potter films.
The trailer gives a taste of what to expect from the forthcoming series, with the professor saying: ‘Crime is inherently traumatic. A narrow snapshot of the event encodes onto the brain. Within seconds this memory starts to become contaminated – once contaminated it can destroy everything.’
When does Professor T air on ITV?
The series will show up around evening time (July 18) at 9pm on ITV. Episodes will air week after week from that point on.
