Maigret’s Dead Man Premieres on ITV this Christmas Day at 9.00pm

Rowan Atkinson stars as the legendary Parisian detective in Maigret’s Dead Man, the second Maigret adaptation for ITV. The feature length drama premieres on Christmas Night at 9.00pm

Jules Maigret first appeared in print in 1931, the creation of Georges Simenon, considered one of the greatest writers of the 20th century.

A series of vicious, murderous attacks on three wealthy farms in Picardie hits the national headlines and Presiding Judge Comeliau (Aidan McArdle) wants Maigret to take charge of the investigation. But Maigret resists because he is intrigued by a series of hurried phone calls from an anonymous man who claims to be being pursued by a gang of thugs who want to kill him.

Seeking more information, Maigret’s trusty aides, LaPointe (Leo Staar) and Janvier (Shaun Dingwall), visit the bars and cafes from which the calls were made but the only description they get is an ordinary working Parisian dressed in a fawn raincoat. That night, a blue and cream Citroen Traction Avant screeches through a quiet back street. Narrowly missing a group of late night revellers, the car suddenly stops and a body is dumped in the road. The car roars away leaving the revellers shocked and stunned. Maigret and his aides are convinced the anonymous victim is the same man who called him. But his face has been disfigured and Comeliau is equally convinced the man is a victim of a gangland feud.

Maigret’s Dead Man airs on Sunday 25 December, 2016 at 9.00pm on ITV. Running time is 120 minutes.
