David Morrissey plays Inspector Tyador Borlú in the BBC Two adaptation of China Miéville’s mind-bending novel The City And The City

The body of a foreign student is discovered in the streets of the down at heel city of Besźel. Cases like this are run of the mill for Inspector Tyador Borlú of the Extreme Crime Squad – until his investigations uncover evidence that the dead girl had come from another city called Ul Qoma. But the relationship between the two cities defies comprehension and will challenge everything Borlú holds dear.

Tony Grisoni (The Young Pope, Southcliffe, The Red Riding Trilogy) adapts this four-part genre-busting thriller from one of Britain’s foremost fantasy writers in a production made by Mammoth Screen.

Morrissey (The Missing, The Walking Dead) heads a cast which includes Mandeep Dhillon (Some Girls) as Constable Corwi of the Besźel Policzai, Maria Schrader (Deutschland 83) as Senior Detective Dhatt of the Ul Qoma Militsya, Ron Cook (Mr Selfridge) as Borlú’s superior Commissar Gadlem, Danny Webb(Humans) as hard-right nationalist politician Major Syedr, and Christian Camargo (Penny Dreadful) as Doctor Bowden, an American academic.

The four-episode series will begin in the UK on Friday, 6th April.
