Michaela Coel's stunning new series is most certainly not a family show, but if you have the stomach for gripping drama this is certainly a Must. Coel is not just a gifted writer and actor, but a brilliant humourist to boot.
We all need a good belly laugh to cheer us up, and This Country is full of ‘em.
By interviewing some of the people who were there, Once Upon A Time In Iraq, tells a new story of the invasion, at times terrifying, but also by turns tender and unexpectedly funny. It is consistently compelling television.
Sherlock Holmes has ditched the deerstalker and pipe for a head of curls and a mobile phone, strutting his eccentric stuff right into the 21st Century. And what better man for the job of playing him than Benedict Cumberbatch?
He never disappoints does he? Sir David Attenborough’s got his thermals on and he’s off to the poles in the name of nature exploration. Cor, almost makes you chilly just thinking about it.

And there are two people who are absolutely certain to give you just that: Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders.
