Doctor Who Vs. Maigret

Ealing Studios' reworking of the works of
Georges Simenon began on ITV at Easter
2016. Rowan Atkinson (born 1955)
became the latest British actor to portray
French detective, Jules Maigret.
 Belgian novelist Simenon (1903-1989)
penned seventy-six crime books between
1931 to 1972  - with many adapted for
cinema, television and radio since 1932.
These four period mysteries were filmed
 on location in Budapest, which stood in for
1950s Paris. Atkinson admitted that he'd
"been a devotee of the Maigret novels
for years" when cast in the role.
A repeat run of the thrillers began on ITV3
last night, and featured Shaun Dingwall (as 
Inspector Janvier), Lucy Cohu, and nineteen
