Love it or hate it (or somewhere in between), Rowan Atkinson’s Maigret is here to stay for the time being and likely to be wheeled out at holiday periods. We had a Christmas Day helping of this new re-telling of Georges Simenon’s early-20th century French policeman, and now the third in an ongoing series will transmit in the next few weeks.
The next case we’ll see Atkinson in is Maigret’s Night At The Crossroads.
In this feature-length story we’ll see Maigret interrogating Carl Andersen for 17 hours without a confession. He’s either innocent or a very good liar. So why was the body of a diamond merchant found at his isolated mansion? Why is his sister always shut away in her room? And why does everyone at Three Widows Crossroads have something to hide?
Aiden McCardle, Shaun Dingwall, Lucy Cohu and Leo Starr all return.
Here’s a trailer:
