Filming has started on the next episode of Maigret, ITV’s acclaimed adaptation of Georges Simenon’s global famous detective.
Currently filming in Budapest and starring Rowan Atkinson, Night At The Crossroads is being executive produced by Simenon’s son, John, and is produced by Thompson & Thompson Productions Ltd and Georges Simenon Limited for ITV.
The episode is described as “a complex tale of murder, deceit and greed in an isolated country community.”
Maigret has been interrogating a mysterious Dane, Carl Andersen, for hours without a confession. Why was the body of a diamond merchant found in his car at his isolated mansion? He’s either innocent or a very good liar. What does his beautiful but vulnerable sister know? And what compels everyone at the Three Widows Crossroads to be so secretive?
Maigret sets out to find his killer.
Joining Atkinson in the episode are Aiden McCardle (Mr Selfridge, The Mill), Shaun Dingwall (Silent Witness, Death In Paradise), Lucy Cohu (Broadchurch) and Leo Starr (Call The Midwife, Lewis).
Further cast includes Kevin McNally (Pirates of the Caribbean), Tom Wlaschiha (Game of Thrones), Mia Jexen (Dual), Stephen Wight (The Paradise), Mark Heap (Friday Night Dinner) and Robin Weaver (Inbetweeners).
