What is the Professor T plot?
The new outing of Professor T is based on the hit Belgian series of the same name.
Set in and around the glorious backdrop of Cambridge University.
Ben Miller stars as Jasper Tempest, a university professor who has OCD but also a gift for crime-solving.
The official synopsis for the series reads: “In the opening episode, our protagonist finds himself unwillingly caught up acting as an advisor to the police; his interest in crime is purely academic.
“Diana Tyson (Elizabeth Kate Back) was violently attacked on the university campus where Professor T has tenure.
“DI Lisa Donckers (Emma Naomi) suspects that the assault is very similar to one that occurred years beforehand, and, having been a previous student of Professor T’s, she thinks he can help.
“Although a valuable contributor to the police force, people that don’t know Jasper very well, struggle with his behaviour.
“Professor T’s relationship with the world often leads him to daydreams and fantasies about the people around him, and the viewer is privy to these wonderful and quirky sequences.”
Filming took place in Belgium and Cambridge
Show star Miller said about the new series: “Professor T has it all: intriguing murders, dreaming spires, and a cast of unforgettable characters, each with their own fascinating secrets.
