We all love a good murder mystery and ITV regularly provides some of the best out there with recent efforts including McDonald & Dodds, Van der Valk and Grace all captivating us over recent years.

Starring Ben Miller of Death in Paradise fame, Professor T is ITV’s newest effort in the crime-solving genre and after two episodes, it hasn’t disappointed.

Professor T episode 3: Release date and plot

After debuting on July 18th, Professor T continues for its third instalment on Sunday, August 1st.
