BBC One confirms transmission date for Dublin Murders

One of the things we have been looking forward to in the autumn is the Sarah Phelps-adapted series, Dublin Murders.

Based on Tana French Dublin Murder Squad novels, it’s an eight-part series. Here’s a trailer.

In the summer of 2006, Rob Reilly (Killian Scott), a smart suited homicide detective and his partner Cassie (Sarah Greene) are dispatched to investigate a child’s murder and find a community caught between old and new Ireland.

On an altar lies the body of a local teenage girl, precociously talented Katy Devlin (Amy Macken). Her body is found in the middle of an archaeological site, threatened by local developers aiming to build a shiny new motorway. The neighbouring estate, Knocknaree, has never quite got its share of the ‘Celtic Tiger’ and has been blighted by poverty and unemployment for generations.

Moreover, this is not the first time a child of Knocknaree has been lost: 21 years earlier, in a very different Ireland, three children went missing and only one ever came back alive.

Memory runs deep in this part of the world, and locals, press and the Dublin Police worry that the cases are linked.

The first episode will air on Monday 14th October, while the second will air on Tuesday 15th.
