Dan Brown's The Lost Symbol

Dan Brown’s novels about symbologist Robert Langdon were a huge hit in the noughties – and after The Da Vinci Code, Angels & Demons and Inferno were given the feature-length treatment with films starring Tom Hanks, his third Langdon novel, The Lost Symbol, has been turned into a TV series.

Find out who’s in the cast, what to expect from the plot and how you can watch the show in the UK.
