If you had to conceive of an environment less suited to an academic with OCD then a prison would be pretty hard to improve upon. However, that is where Prof. Jasper Tempest finds himself, on remand, at the start of "Professor T" season 3.

Following the finale to the last series, when an illegal firearm was discharged in a police station during an attempt to assist his former fiancé DCI Christina Brand (Juliet Aubrey), he now finds his career is on the line and he has, we are told, "a momentous decision to make."

Yes, he keeps on assisting the police from behind bars but the other women in his complicated life, Frances de la Tour as his mother Adelaide Tempest and Juliet Stevenson as his therapist, Dr Helena Goldberg, are fortunately on hand to add their peculiar brands of support.

Watch 'Professor T' season 3 from anywhere

A VPN, or virtual private network, makes it look as if you're surfing the web from your home country, rather than the country you're in. That means you can access the streaming services you normally watch, even when you're travelling or don't live in the service's "home" country to begin with.

We've tested plenty of the best VPN services and our favorite right now is NordVPN. It's fast, works on loads of devices and even offers a 30-day money-back guarantee.

Using a VPN is incredibly simple.

1. Install the VPN of your choice. As we've said, NordVPN is our favorite.

2. Choose the location you wish to connect to in the VPN app. For instance if you're in the U.S. and want to view a U.K. service, you'd select U.K. from the list.

3. Sit back and enjoy the action. Head to ITVX or another service and watch the show.


There's a good reason you've heard of NordVPN. We specialize in testing and reviewing VPN services and NordVPN is the one we rate best. It's outstanding at unblocking streaming services, it's fast and it has top-level security features too. With over 5,000 servers, across 60 countries, and at a great price too, it's easy to recommend.

What has Ben Miller said about his role as Professor Jasper Tempest ahead of the new series?

In January this year Miller told Australian website The AU Review: "I love this character.  He’s just so interesting.  Him being a germophobe, or really having a phobia of touching any surface, and his strange relationship with his mother…and whether or not he had played a part in his own father’s death? He’s got a very bizarre past.  For this third season we actually start to finally get the answers to those questions."

Will there be a fourth series of "Professor T"?

Yes, the deal has already been done. According to Television Business International, "ITV in the UK and PBS in the US have extended Professor T into a fourth season, with distributor Beta Film also revealing a raft of sales for shows including Estonia.

"The six-hour fourth run, which is again being produced by UK prodco Eagle Eye, will launch in the US on PBS and will be available to stream on the PBS Masterpiece Prime Video Channel and branded PBS platforms."
