Professor T: Season 2 (UK)

In the new season of this mystery-crime drama adapted from the hit Belgian series, criminal psychology lecturer and police consultant Professor Jasper Tempest (Ben Miller, Doc Martin, Death in Paradise) works alongside CID detectives DS Lisa Donckers (Emma Naomi, Bridgerton), DS Dan Winters (Barney White, Cell 8), and DI Paul Rabbit (Andy Gathergood, Andor), to untangle a series of knotty crimes. They include: an unexplained fire in a student block; a double murder reminiscent of another from fifteen years ago; the murders of an entire family found posed in a grisly tableau in their home; a seemingly open-and-shut murder case; a high-profile case in which the Professor and the detectives disagree about the suspect; and a situation in which the discovery of an undercover police officer’s dead body leads to the possible implication of a fellow CID colleague.

Meanwhile, Professor T is also dominated and perplexed by the women in his life, including mother Adelaide (Frances de la Tour, Vicious), love of his life Christina (Juliet Aubrey, Primeval), and new therapist Dr. Helena Goldberg (Juliet Stevenson, The Politician’s Wife). (Video is from Season 1)

The Gold (UK)

This true-crime drama series is inspired by the real-life events that took place on November 26, 1983, when six armed men broke into the Brink’s-Mat security depot near London’s Heathrow Airport, and inadvertently stumbled across gold bullion worth £26 million (roughly £112.3 million / US$143.3 million / €130.3 million in today’s value).

According to detectives, what started as “a typical Old Kent Road armed robbery” became a seminal event in British criminal history, not only for the scale of the theft but for its wider legacy. It was the biggest theft in world history then, leading to the heist being called “the crime of the century.” The subsequent disposal of the bullion led to the birth of large-scale international money laundering, provided the dirty money that helped fuel the London Docklands property boom, united blue and white collar criminals, and left controversy and murder in its wake.

Created and written by Neil Forsyth (Guilt), The Gold stars Hugh Bonneville (Downton Abbey, Paddington 1 and 2) alongside Dominic Cooper (The Preacher, Spy City), Jack Lowden (Slow Horses, Small Axe: Mangrove),  Charlotte Spencer (Sanditon, Ted Lasso), Tom Cullen (Becoming Elizabeth, Knightfall), Emun Elliott (Guilt, Trust Me), Sean Harris (Southcliffe, Mission: Impossible- Fallout), Ellora Torchia (Grantchester, The Split), Stefanie Martini (Prime Suspect: Tennison, The Last Kingdom), Daniel Ings (I Hate Suzie, Lovesick), and Adam Nagaitis (Red Rose, Chernobyl).

Northumberland, July 2010. Raoul Moat (Matt Stokoe, Bodyguard), recently released from prison, is keen to rekindle his relationship with his ex-partner, Samantha (Sally Messham, Sherwood). But having been abused and threatened by him, Sally is fearful of him, wants nothing to do with him, and is now dating another man.

While evading capture for more than a week, Moat threatens to kill again — with cops as his targets.
