Criminal Record Plot and Cast
Set in present-day London, Criminal Record follows two detectives who go head to head to get to the bottom of a historic murder conviction. Apple TV+ describes the show as “powerful, character-driven thriller set in the heart of contemporary London”.
“An anonymous phone call draws two brilliant detectives into a confrontation over an old murder case, one a young woman in the early stages of her career; the other a well-connected man determined to protect his legacy,” reads the official synopsis. “The series touches on issues of race, institutional failure, and the quest to find common ground in a polarized Britain.”
Heading up the new thriller is Scottish actor Peter Capaldi, who famously played the twelfth incarnation of the Doctor in Doctor Who from 2013 to 2017. Here, he portrays Detective Chief Inspector Daniel Hegarty, a seasoned investigator intent on protecting his legacy. But when a historic murder case resurfaces, Hegarty clashes with ambitious young newcomer Detective Sergeant June Lenker, played by Cush Jumbo.
You might well recognize the London actor from The Inbetweeners Movie, The Good Wife, or Doctor Who spin-off show Torchwood. The series is directed by BAFTA-winner Jim Loach (Bad Girls, Shameless, Footballer’s Wives).
Criminal Record Release Date
It was announced in June 2022 that Apple TV+ had ordered the series, which had begun production in London, with Peter Capaldi and Cush Jumbo starring. Paul Rutman will write, and Jim Loach will serve as director.
Currently in production in London, there’s no firm release date for Criminal Record. Hopefully it’ll be sooner rather than later, though, as Capaldi has revealed he’s not too keen on returning to Doctor Who for an upcoming 60th anniversary special.
