Just down loaded it today and it looks interesting and also am downloading the 3 complete series of the Belgian one, which my daughter has watched and stated that was brilliant.

Yes I heard it was a remake, do you know if the Belgian series is dubbed in English?

Yes it is, I have just started watching it.

My daughter said that the first two series were brilliant but the third was not so good.

Re: Professor T?

This starts tomorrow evening on ITV at 9pm. Here's the Radio Times summary:

University of Cambridge criminology professor Jasper Tempest is obsessed with cleanliness, structure and order, and is persuaded by a former student - now a police detective - to help her investigate a serial rapist. Meanwhile, when he discovers his mother Adelaide is trying to sell his long-abandoned family home, Jasper makes a momentous decision. Crime drama, starring Ben Miller, Frances de la Tour.

Re: Professor T?

I have watched the first two episodes on Britbox and enjoyed it.
However...

...the light moments and rather dark crimes did not always sit easily with each other

...the 'fantasy'/internal moments were very reminiscent of various Dennis Potter pieces but not so well done

(by way of an aside, it would be brilliant if all the old Dennis Potter series/plays found their way onto Britbox)

...the police characters were all rather stereotypical

...the ITV house style of these sort of programmes being soundtracked with sub-Morse style music is getting a bit tired

Where can I watch the originals?

Re: Professor T?

Watched the 1st episode and thought it strange to say the least. I was expecting rather more of Ben Miller. Francis De La Tour was excellent as Prof T's mother, though

Maybe it will perk up in future episodes.

Re: Professor T?

I watched the first episode and found it very odd. I thought l would give the second episode a chance but have now given up with it.

Itís not my scene!
