Based on the best-selling Harry Virdee books by AA Dhand, VIRDEE introduces an iconic new detective in DCI Harry Virdee, a Bradford cop disowned by his Sikh family for marrying a Muslim. With his personal life in chaos, Harry must hunt down a murderer who is targeting the Asian community.
What starts as a mystery evolves into a riveting thriller, when the killer kidnaps a local MP’s daughter, and makes it clear he has a personal vendetta against Harry himself. Forced to confront the darkest secrets from his past, Harry must decide whether to team up with his drug dealer brother to stop the carnage. How far will he go to save his family?
An adrenaline-fuelled crime series, with elevated twists and turns, the show explores the very real dynamics of religious intolerance, ‘brown-on-brown racism’ and gender violence in the UK’s South Asian heartland, Bradford.
