We may be allowed to go out now, but why would we when there’s so much great telly to watch?

We’ve got an eye-opening doc from Davina, a fun fantasy feast set in Rome, a controversial film on the beeb and an unsung icon on Netflix. Plus, Amazon have released a brilliant new series, and it’s not for the faint hearted.

Here’s what’s worth watching this week

1 Season Amazon Prime 10 x 60 mins
Based on the Pulitzer Prize winner for Fiction by Colson Whitehead, over ten chapters the series tells the story of Cora (Thuso Mbedu), a slave on a Georgia plantation who, after years of abuse at the hands of her ‘master’ decides to escape.
Score: 9.2
1 Season BBC iPlayer 1 x 90 mins
If you’re looking for a show to stick on, watch, and then forget about, then look away now. Danny Boy instead is full of moral dilemmas and political controversy which will have you pondering for days. There’s also some stellar acting.
Score: 7.4
1 Season Now, Sky 8 x 60 mins
Here at Must we’re all in favour of high-class telly. But you know what we’re also all up for? Glorious, fantasy ridiculousness, with camp costumes and improbable plot lines that have you thoroughly engaged and entirely detached from reality.
Score: 6.8
