Vienna Blood (3x90') is written by acclaimed screenwriter Steve Thompson (Sherlock, Deep State). Based on the best-selling Liebermann novels by Frank Tallis, the series will air on BBC Two this winter.
Starring Matthew Beard (The Imitation Game, And When Did You Last See Your Father?) and Juergen Maurer (Vorstadtweiber, Tatort), Vienna Blood is set in 1900s Vienna: a hot bed of philosophy, science and art, where a clash of cultures and ideas play out in the city's grand cafes and opera houses.
Max Liebermann (Matthew Beard) is a brilliant young English doctor, studying under the famed psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud. Max is keen to understand the criminal mind and begins to observe Oskar Rheinhardt (Juergen Maurer), a Detective Inspector in the Vienna Police Department, who is struggling with a perplexing case. Max's extraordinary skills of perception and forensics, and his deep understanding of human behaviour and deviance, help Oskar solve Vienna's most mysterious cases.
