Vi­enna Blood

(BBC2, 9pm-10.30pm)

- Entertainment · Arts · Vienna · Sigmund Freud · Steve Thompson · Matthew Beard · Max Liebermann

The BBC dumped Rip­per Street, cit­ing poor rat­ings, and yet it seems to be launch­ing a very sim­i­lar pe­riod crime drama this week. Vi­enna Blood is based on a se­ries of suc­cess­ful nov­els by Frank Tal­lis, adapted for the screen by Steve Thompson. Matthew Beard takes the lead role of

Max Lieber­mann, a bril­liant young English doc­tor liv­ing in the tit­u­lar Aus­trian city while study­ing un­der psy­cho­an­a­lyst Sig­mund Freud. His path crosses with that of lo­cal po­lice de­tec­tive Oskar Rhein­hardt (Juer­gen Mau­rer), and his help proves in­valu­able in solv­ing a baf­fling and dis­turb­ing mur­der case.
