Dalgliesh is back to serve up more 1970s-set crime-solving drama with a second season out now.
Bertie Carvel (Doctor Foster, The Crown) returns to the role of Detective Chief Inspector Adam Dalgliesh for another three two-part films adapted from PD James’s international best-selling and much-loved Dalgliesh Mysteries, featuring a detective who moonlights as a poet.
Following the critically acclaimed first series of Dalgliesh, also available on BritBox, Carvel is back in the 1970s-set crime drama, rejoined for season two by Carlyss Peer (The Crown) as his colleague DS Miskin, and also by a new member of the team, DS Tarrant (Alistair Brammer – Les Misérables), plus a host of well-known guest stars.
This season kicks off with the discovery of a young girl’s body in a remote part of Norfolk in Death of an Expert Witness (episodes one and two). The post-mortem seems routine enough, but when the forensics laboratory is shaken by the murder of its senior biologist, Dalgliesh is called in to lead the inquiry.
“a classy series” – The Telegraph
