Catch your favourite detective on the telly as he amuses and astonishes you with his unusual detective skills, his eye for detail and trademark phobias on the eighth season of Monk, to be aired on Star World, Monday to Thursday at 11 p.m.

Adrian Monk is a highly gifted detective whose career has been jeopardized by his overwhelming fear of germs, crowds, small places, and almost everything else.

His disorder was triggered by the murder of his beloved wife, Trudy. Ordered to take a leave of absence from the police department, Monk hires a nurse (Bitty Schram ) who helps him try to get reinstated on the force, and in the process, becomes an unlikely Dr. Watson to his Sherlock Holmes.
