DI Humphrey Goodman returns for a Death in Paradise spin-off, the BBC explores the criminal justice system and Shaun Evans returns for the final series of ITV's Endeavour.
BBC Two, 9pm
The new factual series will take a deep dive into UK Parole Boards, focusing on individual prisoners and the unique circumstances which led them to this point.
Episode one focuses on prisoner Colin, who committed murder 25 years ago. When the 54-year-old has a chance to be released, the Parole Board leaves no stone unturned to ensure that the prisoner is safe to return to the general public.
Parole promises a well-rounded look into many aspects of the criminal justice system, and important conversations surrounding rehabilitation and punishment in the UK.
Sophie Rundle (Peaky Blinders) and Serena Manteghi (The Other Half) star as Barcelona Consul colleagues Laura Simmonds and Alba Oritz, who use their diplomatic skills to protect British Nationals in Barcelona.
The series kicks off with the death of a young British barman working on a yacht. Although this is suspected to be a tragic accident by the Police, Laura (Rundle) has other ideas. As evidence emerges, the secrets surrounding the barman’s death become increasingly dangerous for Laura to uncover.
Outer Banks S3
Outer Banks series three will see the “Pogues”, a tightly-knit group of teenagers, deal with the aftermath of series two.
After landing on an island they choose to name “Poguelandia”, the idyllic illusion begins to shatter as the Pogues are forced to swap fishing and relaxing in the sun for another quest for treasure, which has them fearing for their lives.
Sarah (Madelyn Cline), John B. (Chase Stokes), Kiara (Madison Bailey), Pope (Jonathan Daviss), JJ (Rudy Pankow), Topper (Austin North), Rafe (Drew Starkey) and Cleo (Carlacia Grant) are all set to return, alongside John B’s dad ‘Big John’ (Charles Halford), who was presumed dead in the previous series before a dramatic revelation at the end of series two.
BBC One, 8pm
The Death in Paradise spin off will focus on Kris Marshall’s character DI Humphrey Goodman and his new life in Shipton Abbott with his wife, Martha Lloyd (Sally Bretton).
Settling into their new rural life, Martha runs her own restaurant while DI Goodman joins a local police force.
Each episode will focus on a new mystery to solve, including the robbery of a painting, an entire family’s disappearance, and the promise of an Agatha Christie style analysis by Goodman at the end of each episode.
Shaun Evans will make his final outing as Endeavour Morse as the ITV crime drama comes to a close.
Set in the 1970s, the ninth series centres around concerns that London’s crime scene has arrived in Oxford. This is sparked by the discovery of a body in a warehouse, which leads Endeavour and DCI Fred Thursday (Roger Allam) to the Oxford Concert Orchestra. More unexplained deaths emerge, linking to cases Morse hoped were long behind him.
