Adapted from P.D. James’ international bestselling murder mysteries, DALGLIESH is a formidable crime drama about a uniquely enigmatic detective.

A recent widower, Detective Chief Inspector Adam Dalgliesh is a mysterious, controlled detective of exceptional emotional intelligence who also happens to be an acclaimed poet. Set in 1975, series one sees Dalgliesh investigate murders at a nursing school in Hampshire, a home for the disabled on the Dorset coast and a church in Paddington, whilst trying to come to terms with his grief. Bertie Carvel takes the role of DCI Adam Dalgliesh, with Jeremy Irvine as DS Charles Masterson and Carlyss Peer as DS Kate Miskin.

DALGLIESH is made in association with Northern Ireland Screen. 

"If you like straightforward British procedurals based on classic characters, than Dalgliesh won't disappoint."

"Bertie Carvel a marvel as smooth sleuth Adam Dalgliesh in Shroud for a Nightingale"
The Mirror
"The visual impact—the young trainee reacting to the worst physical anguish imaginable, the chief medical instructor covered in blood—is terrorizing"
