Professor T “The Trial” 21 October 2022: Series 2 Episode 5 on ITV
A darkly-comic crime procedural set amongst the dreaming spires of Cambridge and starring Ben Miller, Frances de la Tour, and Juliet Stevenson.
Professor T conducts a series of lectures for his students detailing a high-profile court case in which a caretaker is accused of murdering his employer; the accused was found standing over the victim’s body and his fingerprints on the murder weapon, but Professor T is convinced of his innocence, bringing him into conflict with the CID team and DI Paul Rabbits as the investigating officer. As Professor T persuades Lisa to go behind Paul’s back and help him try to prove his case, he starts to shine a different light on the prosecution’s evidence. Lisa tries to soften the blow to Dan of her upcoming promotion but only succeeds in making things worse. Adelaide agrees to Dr Helena’s request to take part in a joint therapy session with her son to try to help him understand the root of his hostility towards women, but conflict ensues.

About Professor T
Every aspect of Professor Jasper Tempest’s life is precisely calibrated and rigidly structured. Impeccably dressed and meticulously punctual, he lectures daily at the Cambridge Institute of Criminology, teaching students imaginatively, if pedantically, about the science of crime. And each evening, he returns home to his apartment, which is as sterile and systematically ordered as a science lab. Thanks to this strictly regimented approach, his OCD and germaphobia are under control.
But Professor T’s buttoned-down world is slowly undone when he is persuaded by one of his former students, Detective Sergeant Lisa Donckers, to assist her in investigating a serial rapist who has started attacking young women again after a 10-year hiatus. The Professor’s encyclopaedic knowledge of criminal psychology and his brilliant mind prove invaluable to the under-resourced CID team, but the cracks in his carefully constructed emotionless carapace also begin to show.
Working with the Police – and the fiery, instinctive, and occasionally chaotic Lisa, in particular – drags Professor T far from his comfort zone and forces him to confront his painfully suppressed feelings for an old flame, Detective Chief Inspector Christina Brand.
After deciding, in an uncharacteristically irrational moment, to move into his dusty and derelict family home, he also finds it increasingly difficult to escape the influence of his imperious mother, Adelaide, with whom he shares a harrowing family secret that has cast a long shadow over both their lives.
Professor T is a classic crime procedural, featuring a brilliant criminologist and amateur sleuth who solves a succession of quirky and baffling cases. At the same time, it explores the complex private lives of a diverse and engaging cast of characters, not least Professor T himself and the troubling effect that childhood trauma invariably has on adult psychology.
This show is broadcast on ITV.
