The City and the City

Channel: ITV Choice (DStv 123)
TX Time: 20h00
Genre: Sci-Fi, Thriller

This sci-fi noir thriller follows Inspector Borlú of the Extreme Crime Squad as he investigates the murder of a foreign student in Beszel. It seems to be just another run of the mill case for the Inspector – until he discovers evidence that the dead girl had been visiting Beszel's prosperous twin city, Ul Qoma.

This shouldn't be possible as citizens of each city are forbidden from seeing or interacting with each other and the borders are policed by the all-powerful and terrifying Breach.

In an attempt to solve the case, Borlu comes to realise he has a personal connection to the crimes and must embark on an odyssey of the mind to find the truth he has always been seeking.
