In this brand-new Acorn TV Original drama produced and co-written by Peter Fincham, Adrian Scarborough (Killing Eve, Gavin & Stacey, The King's Speech, 1917) takes the lead. This four-part series premieres exclusively on Acorn TV in the United Kingdom.
After divorcing from his art dealer wife Astrid (Anamaria Marinca – 4 Months, 3 Weeks, and 2 Days; Sex Traffic), Detective Inspector Max Arnold (Scarborough) lives on a houseboat on the Thames in Chelsea, mere yards from some of Europe's most precious real estate. The lovely borough is full of lovely people, but there is a dark underbelly of poverty, violence, greed – and murder. Max's dedication and acumen ensure that he will find a way to uncover the truth and bring those responsible to justice, regardless of their riches or prestige.
DC Arnold and his trusted colleague, Streatham-born D.C. Priya Shamsie, played by Sonita Henry (Luther, Krypton), investigate a slew of intriguing cases ranging from the bizarre to the complex, including the death of a lonely stonemason on the London Underground, which appears to Max to be a real-life haunting. Could they come up with a more practical explanation when they learn more about his life?
