What is Professor T on ITV all about?

Based on an original Belgian series of the same name, Ben plays Professor Julien Tempest.

Impeccably dressed and meticulously punctual, Julien lectures daily at the Cambridge Institute of Criminology about the science of crime.

But behind closed doors, Julien battles OCD and germaphobia.

The Prof’s carefully controlled world is slowly undone when he is persuaded by one of his former students, Detective Sergeant Lisa Donckers, to assist her in investigating a serial rapist who has started attacking young women again after a 10-year hiatus.

Working with the police to crack the case, old fears are exposed and feelings for old flame Detective Chief Inspector Christina Brand emerge.
