fast and furious

NEW DRAMA Curfew Friday, Sky One HD, 9pm Screeching on to Sky One this week, in a cloud of exhaust fumes and tyre smoke, comes Curfew, a gloriously bonkers mix of humour, horror and action featuring a host of big names including Sean Bean, Billy Zane, Miranda Richardson and Adrian Lester – plus some seriously souped-up motors – in a no-holds-barred road race. Set in the near-future, the backdrop to Curfew is a post-cataclysmic world where, following the outbreak of a virus, man-eating monsters roam the land at night. While the search for a cure continues, the government has imposed a dusk-till-dawn curfew. However, there is a potential route out of this highly controlled existence for those desperate enough to attempt it. One night each year, mysterious tech billionaire Max Larssen (The OC’s Adam Brody) organises…

wacky racer

Pootling along in their VW camper van, Team Awesome seem unlikely to be first across the line, but they are sure to make the race a fun ride. ‘We bring a kind of Zen cowboy/hippy approach to the journey,’ reveals Titanic actor Billy Zane, whose character, Joker Jones, is along for the ride with El Capitano and Cheese. While the zany trio are bang up-to-date in terms of being social-media stars, their look, behaviour and philosophy owe a lot to US counterculture classics such as the film Easy Rider and Hunter S Thompson’s ‘gonzo journalism’ novel Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. ‘The trio have certainly read Hunter S Thompson,’ Zane suggests. ‘Their copious drug use is part of their nihilism, a way of numbing the pain and madness.’…

secrets and spies

NEW DRAMA Traitors Sunday, C4 HD, 9pm Following her standout performance as Home Secretary Julia Montague in BBC1 thriller Bodyguard, Keeley Hawes returns to the world of dark political intrigue this week for C4’s new espionage drama, Traitors. Set in 1945 as World War Two ends and the Cold War beckons, the six-part series centres on ambitious Feef Symonds (Emma Appleton from Clique), who joins the Civil Service but dreams of becoming a British spy. Feef’s life is turned upside down when her married American boyfriend Peter (Matt Lauria) introduces her to US intelligence agent Rowe (Michael Stuhlbarg). Rowe asks Feef to use her role in the Civil Service to spy for the US and uncover a communist mole who is operating at the heart of the UK Government – all without the knowledge of Feef’s…

danger down under

NEW CRIMEDRAMA Bite Club Wednesday, Alibi HD, 9pm The last time we saw Dominic Monaghan on our screens, he was getting up close to some of the most dangerous creatures in the world in three series of his wildlife documentary show Wild Things. Now, the former Lost actor is working with animals again, as he plays a police dog handler in new Australian crime drama Bite Club. ‘I love being around animals,’ he says. ‘So if I get an opportunity to be with them, I usually take it.’ SUPPORT GROUP The title of the eight-part series, which kicks off with a double bill, refers to a group of shark-attack survivors who meet in a Sydney pub to offer each other support. Among them is detective Dan Cooper (Todd Lasance), who lost a leg when he came to…

tom in trouble

Tom Hollander was especially pleased when he was offered a role in Baptiste. The 51-year-old Rev and The Night Manager actor originally auditioned for the first series of The Missing – and was rejected. ‘I didn’t get The Missing and went into a sulk for several years,’ he jokes. ‘I was excited about this and it was an easy decision because the writing’s so good. You never quite know where you are – it throws you around.’ Hollander’s character, troubled Brit Edward Stratton, is on a relentless mission to track down his missing niece, Natalie. ‘Edward is a divorcé who’s washed up,’ he explains. ‘He finds himself in a dark underworld and there’s a question as to whether he’s in jeopardy or he’s putting other people in jeopardy. He’s on the edge and…

the french connection

NEW CRIME DRAMA Baptiste Sunday, BBC1 HD, 9pm Viewers of BBC1’s acclaimed thriller The Missing were captivated by its jaw-dropping twists and emotional punches as well as the spellbinding performance of Tchéky Karyo as dogged detective Julien Baptiste, who went to extreme lengths to track down lost loved ones. Now, prepare to be baffled, stunned and hooked all over again as the French sleuth returns in an equally shock-filled six-part spin-off, Baptiste, penned once more by The Missing’s Harry and Jack Williams. The series, which also stars Tom Hollander and Jessica Raine, finds Baptiste on the mend after surgery for a brain tumour. He’s in Amsterdam with his wife Celia (Anastasia Hille), recovering and looking after their new grandchild. But he’s soon back on a case when ex-girlfriend Martha (Barbara Sarafian), the city’s police chief,…
