There’s a new highly-anticipated crime drama arriving on our screens, with Grace airing on ITV on Sunday.
The new adaptation of the best-selling Roy Grace novels by Peter James focuses on the unorthodox detective of the same name.
The series is based on the first two books in the series – Dead Simple and Looking Good Dead.
Filmed in Brighton, the new episodes follow Roy as he uses unconventional methods to tackle a missing persons case, including contacting a clairvoyant.
The first episode sees him investigate a stag night gone badly wrong, looking into the events that saw a groom disappear three days before his wedding.
Here’s everything you need to know.

John Simm leads the cast as DS Roy Grace, who is a ‘hard-working police officer who has given his life to the job’.
