The trio travel through Norway, Sweden and Finland taking on challenges along the way, including a race in an abandoned Cold War submarine base.
Ben Miller returns as Cambridge University criminologist Jasper Tempest, aka Professor T, for another series of the darkly comic detective show. While Tempest and his mother, Adelaide (Frances de la Tour), take steps to face his childhood trauma head-on with a therapist, the professor helps Chief Inspector Brand (Juliet Aubrey) solve an attempted murder made to look like an accident.
In the final episode of the first series, DCI Tom Brannick (James Nesbitt) revealed that he was the serial killer Goliath. But with the only person who knows, Tori (Lisa Dwan), shot dead, he is free to go back to his day job as a detective. The new series begins with the shooting of Tom’s old accountant – a problem for the secret killer that only gets worse when his questioning of the victim’s widow opens doors he thought had shut long ago.

The BBC’s clueless reporter is back and this time she’s broadened her horizons. Having completed her investigation into Britain’s history, Diane Morgan’s brilliant Philomena Cunk sets her sights on the rest of the planet, tracking the development of human civilisation through the ages. She starts, naturally, with the earliest examples of ordered society from Rome and Greece (easy to spell) to Egypt and Mesopotamia (harder to spell).
If you’ve ever wondered how Cassian Andor became a Rebel spy, fighting against the oppressive Galactic Empire, then you’re in luck – this prequel to the 2016 Star Wars spin-off Rogue One explores exactly that. Diego Luna reprises his role as Andor and in typical Disney+ fashion, details are thin on the ground. However, we do know the story will join him five years before the events of Rogue One, when the eventual spy was a thief.
