Trailer Park: The Chelsea Detective

Acorn TV has released the trailer for its exclusive new mystery series, The Chelsea Detective, which will stream from February 7.

Adrian Scarborough (Killing Eve, The King’s Speech, 1917) stars as the sharp, intuitive Detective Inspector Max Arnold in the contemporary, four-part UK drama, which will premiere every Monday through February 28.

Here’s the media release:

DI Arnold (Scarborough) lives on a houseboat on the Thames, in Chelsea, after separating from his art dealer wife Astrid (Anamaria Marinca), just yards from some of the most valuable real estate in Europe.

Chelsea is a beautiful borough for beautiful people, but it has a dark underside of deprivation, violence, greed – and murder. Bodies have a way of showing up, and things are rarely what they seem, but Max’s determination and acuity mean he’ll find a way to root out the truth and bring those responsible to justice – regardless of their wealth or status.

Max has assistance in his investigations from his partner, no nonsense DS Priya Shamsie (Krypton’s Sonita Henry).

Also on his team is research and tech queen DC Jess Lombard (Holby City’s Lucy Phelps), rookie officer DC Connor Pollock (Peaky Blinders’ Peter Bankolé) and brilliant, if occasionally daunting, Chief Forensics Officer Ashley Wilton (Shetland’s Sophie Stone).

The cases the team takes on allow viewers to visit a diverse cross section of Chelsea life, spanning the mansions of the super-rich to the council flats of the World’s End Estate, and the rarefied corridors of a prestigious international school to the leafy melancholy of Brompton Cemetery and the bustle of the King’s Road.

Frances Barber (Whitstable Pearl) co-stars as Arnold’s mother.

Created and executive produced by Emmy Award-winning Peter Fincham (I’m Alan Partridge), the four feature-length episodes are written by Glen Laker (Vera, Prime Suspect), Fincham and Liz Lake (Riviera, Call the Midwife).
