Kommissar Van der Valk: Created by Chris Murray. With Marc Warren, Maimie McCoy, Luke Allen-Gale, Elliot Barnes-Worrell. A Dutch detective takes on criminal cases in Amsterdam using insightful human observation and his natural street smarts.
With a theme tune that topped the UK music charts, crime stories that didn't shy away from sex and drugs and gangsters, a precinct made up largely of Amsterdam canals and a moody blond hero at its heart, the British detective series VAN DER VALK ran for 32 episodes over five series between 1972 and 1992 as British audiences were captivated by their first truly international detective. This is VAN DER VALK re-imagined in the Amsterdam of 2018 and beyond aiming to captivate audiences all over again with a new raft of compelling crime mysteries.
