We’ve known for some time that Rowan Atkinson was to step into the shoes (and hat and pipe) of Georges Simenon’s classic French detective, Jules Maigret, and that the first of two new films from ITV were just around the corner. Now the network has confirmed the transmission date and it’s in the next couple of weeks. Stand by for an Easter treat!

In the first film, Maigret Sets A Trap, set in 1955 during a sweltering summer in Paris, the city is gripped with fear as four women are murdered on the streets of Monmartre in a spree of seemingly unconnected attacks. Chief Inspector Maigret is under huge public and professional pressure to find the killer before he strikes again. Maigret sets a trap which ultimately leads to a thrilling climax.

Maigret Sets A Trap: Monday 28th March, 9pm, ITV
