Grace, ITV, March

This new crime drama series is based on the first two novels in the 16-book series by east Sussex author Peter James, featuring Brighton detective superintendent Roy Grace. It begins with Grace chasing leads in some very cold cases with his trademark unorthodox methods—while still dealing with the disappearance of his wife 10 years earlier. Few people do moody, angst-ridden men better than John Simm, who takes on the role of Grace. With so many books in hand, this series could run and run.
