The one benefit that this structure offers “Rellik” is the ability to put the audience in a detective’s mindset more explicitly than any other detective show. As Dci Gabriel Markham (Richard Dormer) wades through the oppressively dark waters of a string of murders and acid attacks, “Rellik” leaves it to the viewer to hunt for clues
Nevertheless, as a national viewing public looks for things to supplement their endless hours of baseball watching, we’ve gathered our monthly list of highlights from among the top choices of new series across network, cable and streaming.
(Missed our picks of what the first part of the year had to offer? Here are some notable TV premieres from February and March.)
“The Crossing” (April 2, ABC)
This ABC drama blends sci-fi with some high-concept political commentary, tracking the aftermath of refugees from a mysterious location showing up on the shore of a coastal fishing town.
Without getting too much into logistics, this first glimpse shows that through the eyes of Gabriel (Richard Dormer), a British detective, the hunt for a murderer works backwards from the crime at hand to try to catch the person responsible. Gabriel himself is the victim of an attack, as the acid burns on his face show.
In the meantime, amidst all the dispatch teams and shotgun blast victims moving like an inverted Gif, Gabriel’s partner Elaine (Jodi Balfour) tries to sort through her own co-worker’s motivations for bringing these particular suspects to justice.
Time will tell if, as another Dormer character once put it, “The enemy always wins.”
In addition to Dormer and Balfour, “Rellik” also marks the very welcome TV return for Paterson Joseph,

In recent years “Game of Thrones” and “Downton Abbey” always had the biggest casts, with “Downton” beating the HBO fantasy series in 2014 and 2015.

“Bitterness, really” is Paul Kaye’s explanation of what drove his satirical red-carpet interviewer Dennis Pennis in the nineties. “I’d hit thirty, I’d sort of failed as a musician, I’d failed as an artist I felt at the time.” Ambushing Hollywood’s elite in the persona of a brash, punk nuisance wasn’t Kaye’s first choice for stardom, he admits. “It wasn’t how I expected to forge a career. Of all the things I thought I’d end up doing, it wasn’t that.”
