It’s the great escape on today’s Must List, because as much as we love a good drug trafficking drama, or gruelling police doc, we also know that sometimes, we just need to switch the telly on, and switch our brains off. 

It’s time to get away from it all with today’s Must List

7 Seasons All4 39 x 40 mins
This show is equally peaceful and alarming – peaceful in that it provides you with an hour of escapist telly, and alarming in that it will have you wanting to pack up your house and the dog, and book a one-way ticket to France....
