Rowan Atkinson sheds his silly Mr. Bean persona to play the serious and measured Chief Inspector Jules Maigret in these beautifully flashy adaptations of George Simenon’s classic detective stories. Set in France with British accents, the series also stars mystery veteran Shaun Dingwell (DCI Banks, Above Suspicion) and Leo Staar as Mairgret’s right- and left- hand men. The production value is sleek and noir with copious flyovers of vintage Paris, reasons alone to watch.
