Dark Psychological Crime Thriller Dublin Murders Coming Soon To BBC
Look, we know it's heartbreaking that summer has come to a grinding halt, rudely bringing an end to tinnies in the garden, family BBQs and a cracking tan.
But while we're having to sacrifice our summery perks, there's one thing we can be grateful for when it comes to the arrival of autumn - that's it's finally time to get under the duvet to binge on ALL the television in the world.
That means you've got plenty of time to get stuck into Dublin Murders, a new crime series for BBC One, Starz and RTÉ based on the internationally bestselling Dublin Murder Squad novels by Tana French.
The eight-part 'dark psychological mystery' series focuses on a murder investigation led by ambitious and charismatic detectives Rob Reilly (Killian Scott) and Cassie Maddox (Sarah Greene).
Judging from the trailer, it's going to bring the perfect level of morbid gloominess to keep us company as the cold nights draw in.

The synopsis offers: "The victims - a young talented ballerina who is found dead on an ancient stone altar; and a vivacious free-spirited woman, who is found stabbed in a roofless famine cottage - are seemingly unrelated, but as we will discover, are actually knitted together by powerful shared themes - the macabre 'red in tooth and claw' elements of both stories, and their heart-thumping psychological thriller qualities."
Killian Scott said: "I couldn't be more delighted to join the creative team behind Dublin Murders. Sarah Phelps has beautifully adapted Tana French's compelling novels into a complex and dark exploration of memory, identity and the potentially devastating consequences of pursuing truth."
He also his expressed his excitement at getting "the chance to stumble into this world alongside the wonderful Sarah Greene and under the guidance of our brilliant directors."
Sarah Greene said: "I'm delighted to be cast in Dublin Murders. To work alongside such talented people as Killian Scott, and the entire creative team is a joy.
"The writing is brilliant and dark and it's thrilling to give Tana French's words a new life on screen through the wonderful Sarah Phelps."
While there's no release date for Dublin Murders in the UK just yet, it's believed to be hitting screens some time next month. It'll also be premiering Stateside on STARZ on 10 November.
