After the success of Professor T last year on Channel 4’s Walter Presents strand, the channel (or at least its affiliate, More4, goes back to Belgium again with Rough Justice (or Coppers as it was known in its own country). Set in Antwerp, Superintendent Liese Meerhout (Hilde De Baerdemaeker) leads her close-knit team in the homicide division to the bottom of the city’s darkest crimes. Now we know when it’s going to be broadcast.
Liese is no ordinary defender of the law: she’s brash, breaks the rules and quite literally bangs the drum in her department. Always seeking to protect the vulnerable and maintain justice in the greatest sense, she is not afraid to push the boundaries to get to the bottom of even the most complex cases, usually using unorthodox methods. But when haunting emails from an unknown sender start appearing in her inbox, a case she thought she had long put behind her, begins to resurface and unnerve the usually steely and implacable superintendent.
Rough Justice: Friday 9th March, 9pm, More4
