Evil: a wickedly good drama

Evil: a wickedly good drama


It’s time to investigate Evil, Alibi’s new supernatural drama from The Good Wife creators Robert and Michelle King

By Virgin TV Edit

What is the cause of evil? Where does it come from? Can it be explained? Those are the burning questions at the dark heart of US drama Evil, which gets its UK premiere at 9pm on Monday 21 September on Alibi/HD (CH 126/212).


When clinical psychologist Kristen Bouchard (Katja Herbers, Westworld) teams up with a wannabe priest (Mike Colter, Marvel’s Luke Cage) and a contractor (Aasif Mandvi, The Daily Show), the unlikely trio find themselves digging deeper into a range of strange mysteries, including supposed miracles and – gulp ­– possible demonic possessions.

Bouchard is convinced science can explain everything, but with some very unusual occurrences taking place around her, she starts to question if there’s more to this world than meets the eye.


“I read an article the other day that described our show as batsh*t TV and I think that’s pretty accurate,” says Herbers. “It’s a jam-packed, weird and thrilling ride. It’s scary, but it also has a lightness and a sense of humour, which makes the show very unique.”


But it’s not just supernatural oddities that Bouchard has to contend with in this new 13-part series. When the investigator and her children are threatened by the creepy Leland Townsend (Lost’s Michael Emerson), her personal life is also thrown into danger. But who is the mysterious Townsend? And what are his motives?


Evil has all the ingredients of an unmissable drama with a twist, and it’s just one of the many great crime shows available to watch on Alibi. Want to check out some of the others that you can enjoy on Virgin TV? Here are five more picks to cast your magnifying glass over…
