New ITV Drama - Trinity

Charles Dance is back on the small screen after his turn in Andrew Taylor's Fallen Angel. This time it's in an eight-part crime drama revolving around Trinity college at the fictional Bridgeford University. From the ITV website:
For over 900 years Trinity has been an elite playground solely for the ├╝ber-rich and powerful. But for the first time in its long and illustrious history, Trinity is about to throw open its doors to students from, well, the lower social classes.

Two weeks before Charlotte Arc is due to go to University to study medicine, her father is found dead in mysterious circumstances. Formerly a professor at Trinity, he left the institution suddenly and with no explanation. Convinced he was a changed man, and certain his death is linked to his abrupt departure, she enrols, determined to uncover the truth.

As Charlotte and her fellow students settle in, they begin to realise that all is not what it seems at Trinity. Beneath the glossy, glamorous veneer of wealth and privilege lurks a darker world, one governed by strict codes of conduct, secret societies such as the mysterious Dandelion Club, and the whims of a select group of over-privileged students used to getting their own way.
Trinity is expected to air later this year.
