Airdate: Baptiste

In April Tchéky Karyo returns as Julien Baptiste in his own spin-off series from The Missing.

This is written once again by the excellent Jack and Harry Williams and the cast includes Tom Hollander, Jessica Raine and Barbara Sarafian.

He meets Edward Stratton who has been desperately scouring the streets of Amsterdam to find his niece, sex worker Natalie Rose. Julien has great empathy for Edward’s plight and the two men delve into the seamy and criminal underworld of the red light district looking for clues as to Natalie’s whereabouts.

But the case takes an unexpected turn and Julien soon finds himself unravelling a complex web of deceit and lies.
