The 10 Best Crime Dramas This Week (Monday 28th June – Sunday 4th July)

For a week in the middle of summer, there’s a lot going on this week. Beck returns for its seventh series, while we also get series three of Dutch drama Blood Pact over on All4/Walter Presents. But that’s not all: look out for BBC America’s adaptation of Terry Pratchett’s The Watch (it’ll come to BBC Two after its iPlayer premiere) and an intriguing mystery on Alibi called Limetown. And we also say goodbye to Yr Amgueddfa. Enjoy!
