Quirky Detective DI Max Arnold is back to solve more murders in London’s swankiest neighbourhood.
The hit British crime drama The Chelsea Detective, starring Adrian Scarborough (Killing Eve, The King’s Speech, 1917) as the sharp, intuitive Detective Inspector Max Arnold, makes its highly anticipated return to BritBox for a second season. Eight new episodes see DI Arnold teaming up at Chelsea CID with a new colleague, Detective Sergeant Layla Walsh, played by Vanessa Emme (Bloodlands, A Discovery of Witches).
London’s richest borough hides a dark side that Max knows all too well, as killers lurk among the designer shops and luxury homes. In the season premiere, when an art gallery manager is stabbed during a robbery at an exhibition, it appears he was in the wrong place at the wrong time but, as the team delves into the elite world of Chelsea’s art scene, Max soon wonders if the victim was in fact an accomplice. Rachael Stirling (Hollington Drive) guest stars as gallery owner Rebekah Chaban.
Other returning cast members include Sophie Stone (Shetland), Lucy Phelps (Grace), Peter Bankolé (Peaky Blinders), Anamaria Marinca (Deadline) and Frances Barber (Whitstable Pearl). The Chelsea Detective is created and executive-produced by Emmy Award-winning Peter Fincham (The Lost Prince, Smack the Pony, I’m Alan Partridge).
