On Sunday 26th of April, ITV will start showing the re-imagining of the classic detective hit “Van Der Valk”. 


As captivating as ever, the new series of 3 x feature-length episodes comes with new stories and new supporting characters; it even comes with new music.


Matthijs embraced this challenge and has set the episodes to a more minimal, contemporary and relevant score with just the subtlest of nods to the iconic No. 1 hit Eye level, the original theme by Jack Trombey which spent over 20 weeks in the top 50, and accompanied all 1972-1992 episodes.


Van Der Valk, episode one “Love in Amsterdam” will be shown on ITV on Sunday 26 April at 8pm.
