One of TVs best loved French detectives Julien Baptiste, played by the inimitable Tchéky Karyo, made a massive impact in the hugely successful drama The Missing Series 1 & 2 and has just returned to our screens with his very own show, Baptiste. This gripping six-part crime drama is set for its DVD release on 1st April 2019 courtesy of Acorn Media International following its run on BBC One.
From Harry and Jack Wiliams, the respected writers of the acclaimed The Missing comes Baptiste, a thrilling new drama starring Karyo (The Patriot, La Femme Nikita) as the insightful, but stubborn eponymous investigator.
When Julien and his wife move to Amsterdam, his ex-girlfriend who happens to be the Chief of Police seeks out his help due to his questioning and persistent approach to crime solving. Baptiste becomes heavily embroiled in a case that peels back the layers of atrocity in the trade of sex and drugs and exposes the vile depths of human behaviour. Delving deep into the criminal underworld he soon uncovers a complex web of deceit and lies. Can he uncover the dark secrets hidden amongst the beautiful streets, canals and houses of the city?
With excitement building for the welcome return of our favourite detective, alongside a stellar cast including Tom Hollander (The Night Manager, Rev) and Jessica Raine (Patrick Melrose, Call the Midwife), Baptiste is set to become the show everyone is talking about.
