Best TV of September 2019: hmv.com previews five of the best shows...

hmv.com previews five of the most exciting TV dramas that will be coming to your screens in September...

 

Temple

(Sky One)

 

Mark Strong takes centre stage in this new eight-partner, which is a remake of hit Norwegian drama Valkyrien. 

Strong plays Daniel Milton, a surgeon who runs an illegal medical clinic for dangerous and desperate patients, a clinic which is housed in a vast, abandoned network of tunnels near Temple Station.

Naturally, given the clandestine location and way of working, Milton's clients bring with them their fair share of risk...

Game Of Thrones' Carice Van Houten, Daniel Mays, Catherine McCormack, Wunmi Mosaku and Craig Parkinson co-star.

 

 

The Capture

(BBC One)

 

Holliday Grainger and Calum Turner come together for this hi-tech new thriller. 

Turner plays Shaun Emery, a soldier who we meet after his conviction for murder in Afghanistan is successfully overturned due to flawed video evidence.

Now vindicated, he begins to plan for his life as a free man with his six-year-old daughter. 

But, when damning CCTV footage emerges from an incident in London, it isn’t long before Shaun is in the frame again. Grainger's DI Rachel Carey is brought in to investigate, but is the evidence against Emery all it seems?

Laura Haddock, Hiten Patel, Sophia Brown, Famke Janssen, Ron Perlman and Ralph Ineson co-star.

Ben Chanan, director of Cyberbully, The Missing and The Last Kingdom is in charge for this six-part series.

 

 

City On A Hill

(Sky Atlantic)

 

For this 10-parter, we travel back to Boston in the early 1990s, finding a city in the grip of corruption, inspired by the real-life police initiative widely known as 'The Boston Miracle'. 

Straight Outta Compton's Aldis Hodge plays DeCoury Ward, who arrives in town with a misison. To help, he forms an unlikely alliance with Kevin Bacon's a corrupt yet venerated FBI veteran, Jackie Rohr. 

Together, they vow to take on a family of armoured car robbers from Charlestown, it is a case that will come to symbolise all that is wrong with the city's justice system. 

Amanda Clayton, Cathy Moriarty, Kevin Dunn and Jill Hennessy are in supporting roles.

Charlie Maclean is the key creative force behind this one, with Boston natives Ben Affleck and Matt Damon among the executive producers.

 

 

The Hot Zone

(National Geographic)

 

The 1989 story of how Ebola, a highly infectious and deadly virus from the central African rain forest, suddenly arrived in the US, is brought to life in this six-parter.

Traced to monkeys in a scientific research lab in the suburbs of Washington, D.C., scientists quickly establish that there is no known cure for the virus. 

To try and stop it, Lieutenant Colonel Nancy Jaax and secret military team put their life on the line to head off the outbreak before it spread to the wider population. 

The Good Wife's Julianna Margulies is Jaxx, with Noah Emmerich, James D'Arcy, Liam Cunningham and Topher Grace backing her up.

The story has been in development for a feature film since 1994, but finally comes to the small screen from writer James V. Hart.

 

 

The Loudest Voice

(Sky Atlantic)

 

Russell Crowe leads the way in this tense drama about Roger Ailes, the founder of Fox News.

The series, which is seven episodes in all, focuses on Ailes' ever-increasing influence over the Republican Party and the unveiling of the sexual harassment accusations that brought his career to an end. 

Joining Crowe in the mini-series are Seth MacFarlane, Sienna Miller, Simon McBurney, Annabelle Wallis, Aleksa Palladino and Naomi Watts.
