Bertie Carvel takes the titular lead in Dalgliesh, a brand-new, must-watch period crime drama which is set to delight on its DVD and digital release this December courtesy of Acorn Media International, following its UK premiere on Channel 5.
Based on renowned author P.D. James' bestselling novels Adam Dalgliesh Mysteries, this gripping new drama follows the enigmatic detective and poet (Carvel – Doctor Foster, Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell, The Tragedy of Macbeth), as he takes on extraordinary murder cases, and reveals long-buried secrets.
Following in the footsteps of distinguished detectives such as Sherlock Holmes and Poirot, Adam Dalgliesh takes us to 1970s England, solving strange mysteries including: a student nurse poisoned during training, a homeless man and a retired Tory politician found dead with their throats slashed in a London church and a very suspicious death at a mysterious disability care home. Dedicating his career to cracking crime and bringing killers to justice, Dalgliesh is forced to uncover some dark and dangerous truths along the way...
Written by Helen Edmundson (Mary Magdalene) alongside a host of talented scribes, the show features a brilliant line-up of guests including Jeremy Irvine (War Horse), Natasha Little (War of the Worlds) and Mirren Mack (Sex Education). The series draws upon three books, tracing the detective's expansive crime-fighting career, with each case offering its own unique setting and an exciting guest cast.
