Professor T. - UKSet against the glorious and prestigious backdrop of Cambridge University, Professor T is a brand new, high-end primetime series for 2021.
Professor T teaches criminology at the prestigious University of Cambridge. A brilliant but unorthodox teacher, he is beset by a plethora of neuroses that hold him back from getting close to people. Quite literally, he protects himself from the outside world in a shroud of antibacterial spray and only interacts with people through a layer of latex gloves.
When Lisa, former student and current police detective, turns to him for help, Professor T reluctantly agrees; contending with a domineering mother on a daily basis, he is haunted by an unlocked childhood trauma. As he joins forces with the police department, Professor T finds himself well out of his comfort zone and struggles to cope with his mental issues. Solving violent crimes, though – well, that comes naturally!
