Knives Out

If you're an Agatha Christie fan, you've got a treat in store!

The Good Liar

Ian McKellen and Helen Mirren star in the adaptation of Nicholas Searle's bestselling thriller, packed with twists and turns.

An ageing conman, Roy, preys on a wealthy widow, Betty, after meeting her online.

Is anything really what it seems?



Fanny Hill

The New Pope

The long-awaited sequel to The Young Pope, the sensational drama starring Jude Law and Diane Keaton, is here! And John Malkovich has joined the cast.

It continues the story of the fictional Pope Pius XIII, who now lies in a coma. A new pope must be elected.

 

Cottage to Let

Anthony Asquith's 1941 spy thriller is now considered a vintage classic.

Starring Leslie Banks, Alistair Sims, George Cole and John Mills, it tells the story of a Fifth Column organisation which plans to kidnap a scientist who is developing a revolutionary new bomb.

Unaware of the mounting threat to his security, the scientist continues working in his country house laboratory. His assistant is suspected of passing classified material to enemy agents. The arrival of an injured officer , a writer and an evacuee from London all add to the twists and turns of the plot. 

 

Long Day's Journey Into Night

Sidney Lumet's classic – and flawless – adaptation of Eugene O'Neill's Pulitzer Prize-winning masterpiece, starring Katharine Hepburn, Ralph Richardson, Jason Robards and Dean Stockwell.

Taking place over a single, fateful day in the summer of 1912, the Tyrone family confront their bitter failings and resentments towards each other.

Patriarch James is a renowned, if embittered, stage actor who’s never forgotten his squalid Irish childhood. Mary, his wife, is a morphine addict. His eldest son is a violent alcoholic and failed actor, and his youngest (and clearly favourite) son Edmund is a nervous young man suffering from tuberculosis.

 

Death in Paradise Series 9

Ardal O' Hanlon stars in the BBC's award-winning and much-loved crime series with a comedic twist! 

DI Jack Mooney may have settled into life on the glorious Caribbean island of Saint Marie, but the murders keep coming. From an apparent serial killer on the loose on New Year’s Eve to an artist found poisoned in her studio, the cases are more baffling than ever. And an unexpected romantic encounter prompts some soul-searching for Jack.

 

Miz Rocks: Les Misérables – The Staged Concert

Now you can experience the phenomenon from the comfort of your sofa and enjoy performances of songs such as I Dreamed a Dream, Bring Him Home, One Day More and On My Own.

 

Baghdad Central

Who would have thought a crime drama set in Iraq would be the next big thing on TV? Channel 4's critically acclaimed thriller has unleashed a new detective on our screens and by all accounts he's here to stay.

It is October 2003 and Iraq is occupied by a US-led coalition when ex-police inspector Khafaji learns his daughter, an interpreter, has gone missing. When invited to help rebuild a new Iraqi police service by British policeman Frank Temple, Khafaji must decide whether to become a collaborator to gain access to the secure Green Zone and further his search for his daughter.

 

Last Tango in Halifax – Series 5

Celia and Alan, we've missed you!

Anne Reid and Derek Jacobi return in the globally acclaimed BBC comedy drama about late life romance and second chances.

Alan and Celia have now been married for seven years. The childhood sweethearts – who reunited and remarried in their seventies – have moved into a lovely new home. But Alan and Celia are discovering that wedded bliss isn’t always blissful. Clashing politics, Alan’s new job and a wild local lad create tension. Meanwhile, Caroline gets emotionally embroiled at work and Alan’s brother Ted jets in for a visit (and he hasn’t come alone).
