Jack Davenport (Pirates of the Caribbean, “Smash”) stars as a brilliant London surgeon in 1961, when doctors were treated like gods and acted the part. Also starring in this stylish story of a dark secret amid the complexities of the sexual revolution are Zoe Boyle (“Downton Abbey”), Catherine Steadman (“Mansfield Park”), Iain Glen (“Downton Abbey”), Natasha Little (“Case Histories”), Oliver Chris (“Sharpe’s Challenge”), Joanna Page (Love Actually) and Shaun Dingwall (“Touching Evil”).
David Suchet (“Henry VIII,” “The Way We Live Now”) returns in his signature role as suave Belgian super sleuth Hercule Poirot in two new mysteries, “The Big Four” and “Dead Man’s Folly,” based on the novels by Agatha Christie. Whether he’s on holiday abroad, taking a countryside break or simply going about his business near his central London home, Poirot finds himself exercising his “little grey cells” by helping police investigate crimes and murders, whether they ask for his help or not.
David Tennant (“Broadchurch,” “Doctor Who”) stars as a brilliant defense lawyer with a storybook family and a potent nickname, “The Escape Artist,” for his ability to spring the obviously guilty. But then he gets a trial that changes his life forever. Written by David Wolstencroft (“Spooks”), this gripping legal thriller costars Sophie Okonedo (Hotel Rwanda) as the hero’s rival, along with a courtroom full of ambitious attorneys and one very unnerving defendant.
