BBC Four’s latest foreign-language import is set in 16th century Spain.

Beginning with a double-bill, it takes place in Seville in the middle of outbreak of bubonic plague. Mateo Nunez (Pablo Molinero), a man who is under suspicion from the Inquisition, is investigating the murder of a wealthy merchant while this most horrid of illnesses is infecting the city.

The Plague is on BBC Four at 21.00.
