Ben Miller’s recent cameo might have certainly ignited his evergreen love of crime drama. His return to Death in Paradise was quite fascinating and considering his crime role’s history, it was exciting to watch for the audience too with his quirky role in ITV’s upcoming police series Professor T.
The show is based on the events of an extremely popular Belgian crime programme that goes by the same name. It is centered around a brilliant yet fastidious university lecturer who later develops to become a reluctant detective in order to solve all kinds of crimes occurring in Cambridge and beyond.
No air date has been confirmed yet as the programme is considered to be in the post-production stage as of now. Filming for Professor T began in Belgium and Cambridge way back in the summer of 2020. Thus, we wouldn’t have to wait long before we get Professor T on our screens!
As mentioned before, the six-part crime drama would be centered around Professor Jasper Tempest who ultimately becomes an advisor to the police. In the opening episode of the show, Diana Tyson (Elizabeth Kate Back) would be attacked on the university campus and our Professor will be seen begrudgingly caught up in a police investigation regarding the same.
Additionally, the crime is believed to follow the same patterns as it did a few years before. Ben Miller is certainly expected to reprise his role as Professor T in the show. Miller has time and again explained why this character is so intriguing for him and also let his fans know that he is quite excited to be on board with the cast and crew.
There’s no trailer out of the new show yet but it is estimated to be out soon considering the show is in its last few stages of production!
