Man in the High Castle
A dark drama series based on the novel by Philip K Dick, which imagines a world in which it was the Axis powers who won World War II by dropping an atom bomb on Washington DC. Life is grim under Nazi rule, but as Juliana Crain (Alexa Davalos) discovers, there are pockets of resistance forming. Dare she sign up?

Mozart in the Jungle
Sex, drugs and classical music in this series going behind the scenes in the world of top orchestras  – and what happens behind the curtains at the symphony can be just as captivating as what occurs on stage.

Peaky Blinders - Season 4
He’s back. He of the cheekbones, piercing gaze and a nasty habit of murdering his enemies. We’re talking about Cillian Murphy as Brummie gangster Tommy Shelby, of course, and in the fourth series onboard, he’s continuing to plan expansion overseas.

Red Oaks - Season 1
Coming-of-age comedy series following David (Craig Roberts), who’s deciding how to spend the rest of his life while also working as assistant tennis pro at Red Oaks Country Club. “Focus on grades,” says his dad. “Drop out and go into stocks,” drawls his boss. Sheesh. All that, and there are matters of the heart to which he must attend.

Save Me
The fact that it stars Lennie James is the only recommendation you need for this hard-hitting drama. The fact that he also wrote it? Where do we sign? James plays Nelly, a down-and out whose life is turned upside down when Jody, the estranged daughter he fathered 13 years ago, mysteriously disappears. Suranne “Doctor Foster” Jones stars as Jody’s mother.
