The 10 Best Crime Dramas This Week (Monday 4th – Sunday 10th October)

BBC Four is back in the game this week with a good-looking French procedural set around the beginning of the 20th century. Paris Police 1900 certainly looks the part.

    Dear Killingtimes,

    I tried to change the email address for the newsletter and stupidly deleted the subscription.

    On your website I can’t find a form for applying again.

    Can you help?

    Thank you & best wishes

    To be honest the drama I am most looking forward to doesn’t even get a mention…Craith. Bittersweet as it’s the last series, but better to go out with three strong series (fingers crossed) than the quality dropping.
