About this show

Quirke is a bold, mesmerising drama full of mystery, secrets and intrigue, starring Gabriel Byrne and Michael Gambon. A consultant pathologist for the Dublin city morgue in the 1950s, Quirke is a man more at ease among the cold silent slabs than the company of his fellow men, but his curiosity is aroused after a body vanishes from his mortuary one night. Turning detective, he delves deep into the secrets of Dublin, and discovers his investigations are more closely linked to his own life than he could ever have imagined. Little by little he is forced to confront the sins of his past as he peels back the layers of his own tangled family history. From award winning writers Andrew Davies and Conor McPherson, adapted from the books by the novelist John Banville.
