UKTV return to The Marlow Murder Club

UKTV have confirmed the return of the amateur sleuthing trio, Judith, Suzie and Becks, in the second series of The Marlow Murder Club…

The six part series will air on U&DRAMA and U.

The first series, which aired on Drama and UKTV Play on 6th and 7th March 2024, saw record ratings of 2.7million* (Drama’s best ever performance). This six-part series, which is set to start filming this summer, sees Robert Thorogood join forces with writers Lucia Haynes (Annika, Vera) and Julia Gilbert (Midsomer Murders, Ridley), who will write a murder mystery each that spans two-episode instalments. With three main cases in the series, episode one and two will be an adaptation of Robert’s second book, Death Comes to Marlow, with the other episodes being brand new, standalone stories.

Life in the idyllic town of Marlow has just about returned to normal after the triple murder that rocked the community. But it’s not long before retired archaeologist Judith Potts (Samantha Bond), Vicar’s wife, Becks Starling (Cara Horgan), and dog-walker, Suzie Harris (Jo Martin) are called back into action, when a series of new unsettling crimes befall the local residents.

From a seemingly impossible murder inside the locked study of a sweeping mansion to the mysterious case of a man murdered in the middle of a sleepy cul-de-sac with no connection to the town, and an unexpectedly brutal accident at the prestigious Marlow sailing club that quickly reveals itself to be something more sinister, there’s no rest for our sleuthing trio. Navigating the delicate balance of Marlow society – from local aristocracy to the workers at the local boatyard, the pubs and cafes of the high street to a newly established archaeological dig – Judith, Becks and Suzie dig into all corners of Marlow life as they assist DCI Tanika Malik (Natalie Dew) in her official investigations.

The Sunday Times bestselling Marlow Murder Club novels have now sold in excess of 350,000 copies and been translated into 24 territories. Robert Thorogood is hard at work on the fourth book, which will be published by HQ (a division of HarperCollins Publishers) in January 2025.

The Marlow Murder Club series two is a brand-new UKTV Original commission and will air on U&DRAMA and stream on U in 2025 The series is once again a co-commission with co-producer and US broadcaster MASTERPIECE and produced by Monumental Television in association with ITV Studios.
