Comprising three feature-length dramas, Van Der Valk follows detective Piet Van der Valk in and around the city of Amsterdam as he investigates a series of high-profile cases.
Filmed entirely on location in the Dutch capital, Van Der Valk stars Marc Warren in the title role alongside Maimie McCoy, Luke Allen-Gale, Elliot Barnes-Worrell, Darrell D’Silva and Emma Fielding.
The series is based on the books by Nicholas Freeling and comes after previous TV adaptations in the 1970s and 90s.
In this DQTV interview, Warren (Mad Dogs, Safe) and writer Chris Murray (Lewis, Midsomer Murders) reveal the origins of this contemporary reboot, Warren’s approach to the role and how they wanted to characterise the location.
Van Der Valk is produced by Company Pictures and NL Film for ITV, ARD and Masterpiece, with All3Media International distributing.
